Tottenham pushing to sign Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet

Tottenham are pushing to sign Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet.

Sport says Tottenham are now firm favourites to land Lenglet.

AS Roma are also keen on the Frenchman but Spurs are thought to be in command, with manager Antonio Conte eager to land a new central defender.

From their perspective, Spurs are said to be hoping to wrap a deal up quickly.

Barca will not stand in Lenglet's way if he can find a new club.

Roma were not keen on Lenglet's wage demands, though Spurs will likely push for Barca to contribute. Conte will speak to the player to convince him to make the move.

An agreement could be reached this week with Lenglet's agent working on the details.
