​Tottenham reach final stage of talks for Barcelona defender Lenglet

Premier League giants Tottenham are in advanced talks with Barcelona regarding Clement Lenglet.

The French centre-half is emerging as a key target for manager Antonio Conte.

Spurs are seeking a left-footed defender who can play on the left side of a three-man defence.

According to the Evening Standard, both clubs have all but agreed terms for the loan deal.

Lenglet will spend a year with Spurs, hoping to eventually secure a permanent move to the club.

The 27-year-old is down the pecking order at the Camp Nou, with the likes of Gerard Pique, Ronald Araujo, and impending signing Andreas Christensen all in his way.
