Barcelona close to signing Sevilla's Clement Lenglet on five-year deal - reports
Clement Lenglet has turned down a new deal at Sevilla and is close to signing for Barcelona, according to reports in Spain.
According to the Barcelona-based papers, France under-21 defender Lenglet, under contract with Sevilla until 2021, will sign a five-year contract at the Camp Nou later this week.
The centre-back has also been linked with a number of other clubs including Manchester United.
According to Estadio Deportivo, Sevilla had been keen to keep Lenglet and offered him a lucrative new deal at the weekend.
Lenglet moved to Sevilla from Nancy for €5m in January last year, and they will get around €3.5m from training compensation should his transfer to the Camp Nou be completed.
