BARCELONA have reportedly offered North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham the chance to sign centre-back Clement Lenglet on loan.

The 26-year-old was a peripheral figure at the Nou Camp during the 2021-22 season where he featured in just 21 LaLiga games.

The likes of Gerard Pique, Eric Garcia and Ronald Araujo were all preferred ahead of the Frenchman.

And with the Blaugrana set to snap up Chelsea's Andreas Christensen on a free transfer, Lenglet could fall further down the pecking order under boss Xavi.

As a result, the ex-Sevilla ace, who is tied down at the Catalan club until 2026, could be allowed to depart.

According to The Times, Lenglet could be on his way to England in the upcoming transfer window.

They claim that both the Gunners and Spurs have been offered the chance to sign the defender on a temporary deal.

Arsenal could be in the market for a new centre-back should William Saliba be offloaded once again.

And they could decide to bring Lenglet in to replace Pablo Mari, with Udinese keen to permanently sign him after his loan spell.

Antonio Conte is also in the market to bolster his backline with Davinson Sanchez and Joe Rodon facing uncertain futures.

Meanwhile Lenglet could be seen as an alternative should Spurs miss out on their top target Alessandro Bastoni.

Bastoni has also been linked with Newcastle as the Magpies look to splash the cash once again.

Everton and West Ham have also been rumoured to be interested in the Les Bleus international in the past.

But it remains to be seen whether the two clubs remain keen on securing his services.
