Report: Arsenal have been offered 'world-class' player, just days after Tottenham thought they'd got him

There’s nothing like a back and forth rumour in the summer transfer window and the name of Clement Lenglet keeps popping up for Arsenal and Tottenham fans.

The Barcelona defender is on his way out of the Camp Nou this summer after struggling to make any sort of impression since arriving. However, Lenglet still holds some stock on the European market. Indeed, it was only over the last few days that reports claimed Lenglet had agreed a two-year loan with Tottenham.

However, in what appears to be a fresh twist in the saga that is Clement Lenglet, The Times has claimed that the defender has indeed been offered to Arsenal now as well.

The Gunners are known admirers of the Frenchman. His name has been mentioned in previous windows, and it seems like summer 2022 is when we’ll finally see Lenglet move on. Of course, both Arsenal and Tottenham have a long list of potential signings they’d like to make.

As things stand, it doesn’t look like either club has taken the plunge and committed to a deal for Lenglet. But it does seem something is edging closer, with Barca clearly keen to move their man on ASAP.

TBR’s View: Arsenal Can Do Better Than Lenglet

There is a reason beyond just money as to why Barcelona want to move Lenglet on and that in itself should be a red flag for Arsenal. And in that, you can include Tottenham.

If Lenglet is going to be coming on a free, then fair enough. But even then, there is a risk here. Lenglet has hardly played for the last few seasons and you have to question if he really improves either team.

Tottenham and Arsenal have some big decisions to make really. Clement Lenglet probably falls into the category of ‘might do a job’, rather than game changer.
