Comparing Clement Lenglet’s 21-22 stats with Spurs’ current defenders


Tottenham have moved fast to reinforce their squad this summer and have agreed a season-long loan deal for Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet – but how does he compare to the centre-backs currently at Antonio Conte’s disposal?

Lenglet was reportedly one of six players that Barcelona boss Xavi told are not in his plans going forward.

But the France international been heavily linked with a move to north London prior to that news and it seems a deal is now extremely close to being completed.

The defender, who recently signed a new contract at Barcelona until 2026, made just seven starts for the Spanish giants last season as they finished second in La Liga.

He fell out of favour under Xavi last season, as Ronald Araujo, Eric Garcia and Gerard Pique were preferred to him at the heart of Barca’s back line.

And Lenglet looks set to become Spurs’ fifth summer signing, following the signings of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma and Richarlison, as Conte builds a squad capable of competing in the Champions League.

But how would Lenglet fare in England? We’ve crunched the numbers and compared Lenglet’s 2021-22 La Liga stats at Barcelona with the corresponding Premier League numbers of Spurs’ current centre-back options.
