After returning from his loan stint at Tottenham Hotspur, Clement Lenglet has been among the transferrable players at Barcelona.

While he travelled with the squad for their American tour, he hasn’t seen any playing time and the club will now look to speed up his exit after Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr have emerged as suitors.

Reports from SPORT now state that while Al Nassr could be in pole position to sign the Frenchman, Tottenham cannot be ruled out as an option for his future.

Lenglet prefers the Premier League

A potential move back to Tottenham has been the main prospect for Lenglet, contingent on the English club covering his hefty salary.

However, this means a minimal transfer fee if they agree to take up his wages.

On the other hand, although the deal is still far from being finalized, the potential sum that the Saudi team might offer Barcelona could reach approximately 15 million euros, which would be a huge boost for their finances.

While the door to a return to Tottenham remains ajar, the financial terms of their proposition would need enhancement.

Al-Nassr have reportedly extended a contract offer to Lenglet spanning three years, extending until 2026, while maintaining his current salary, which means it would be a no-brainer for Barcelona.

If their bid matches that of the Saudi club, Lenglet seemingly prefers to move to the Premier League.

Lenglet’s departure, initially looking like nothing more than a way to alleviate pressure off the wage bill, could now actually end up being a profitable transfer.
