Spurs confirmed the signing of Brazilian international Richarlison from Everton in a club record £60m move earlier today with Lenglet the next new face expected to arrive in North London.

Lenglet is surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou ahead of the new campaign and a loan could revive his flagging career.
Barcelona are happy for him to move on in the coming weeks, as they aim to balance an inflated wage bill, with Spurs potentially offer a purchase option on the Frenchman, as part of the loan agreement.
