Barcelona complete £32m signing of defender Clement Lenglet from Sevilla

Clement Lenglet

Barcelona have completed the signing of Sevilla's Clement Lenglet after the defender deposited his €35.9 million release clause with the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) on Thursday.

The 23-year-old has signed a five-year contract with a buyout clause valued at €300 million, it added.

Lenglet made 73 appearances in all competitions across one-and-a-half seasons with Sevilla after joining from French club AS Nancy in January 2017.

The French global is set to sign a five-year contract with the Catalans.

Lenglet's deal includes a release clause, which stands at €300m (£264m/$350m), and runs until June 30, 2023.

Do you think Lenglet will be a success at Barca if he joins?

He is yet to be capped by France at senior level but has won 10 caps at Under-21 level.

Manager Ernesto Valverde will likely use France youth worldwide Lenglet alongside Thomas Vermaelen as back-ups for starting centre-back duo Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti.

Lenglet, a former France under-21 global, becomes Barca's second signing of the summer following confirmation last week that Gremio midfielder Arthur Melo will also join the club this month.
