Although Tottenham Hotspur are fourth in the Premier League table, only seven clubs have conceded more goals this season (37 goals in 27 matches), so it’s clear that Antonio Conte has a defensive problem.

The Lilywhites are backed by Cristiano Romero, Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez, Japhet Tanganga and Clément Lenglet, but they haven’t conceded just two home goals in the league since October.

Spurs want to sign Lenglet on a permanent contract from Barcelona but Luis Miguelsanz related to Sport He said an 18m-euro (£15.9m) deal was “paralyzed” due to Conte’s uncertain future in North London.

miguelsanz The Tottenham manager says he could be on track to leave after March’s Champions League qualifier and the possibility of another trophy-free season. The journalist says that if the Spurs miss out on the top four, Conte could leave, meaning Lenglet could return to his parent’s club.

He is writing: Conte comes under criticism after being knocked out of the Champions League. The Italian’s position is in jeopardy. If he doesn’t (get into the top four), it’s likely that Conte’s cycle will be over and Lenglet’s transfer will be very complicated.’

Lenglet joined the team on a one-season loan last summer and has made 26 appearances in all competitions, scoring one goal and two assists. The 27-year-old hasn’t always been a regular in his first season, sitting on the bench for nine of Tottenham’s 27 league games, but he’s still a player the club wants to sign.

Sanchez played 48% of his senior games (13/27 games) and 20% (570/2430) of the minutes available, so he is not a regular centre-back. Tanganga has only made five appearances in all competitions this season, so his future in North London is also uncertain.

No defender with at least seven league starts fouled less than Lenglet (0.6) per game, while only Dier dribbled less per game (0.2) than his French teammate (0.5). A single defender with at least seven league starts is more accurate on his passes than Lenglet (87.2%). , so it adds value to the back line.

But without Conte, the 27-year-old may not stay at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Spurs are six points away from fifth-placed Liverpool with 11 games left, so they’re looking on a route to seal Champions League football for another year.
