Barcelona’s signing of Andreas Kristensen as a free agent at Chelsea this week put further pressure on France’s central position in the squad, while ESPN reports that manager Xavi is also keen to include Sevilla’s high-profile Jules Condडे.
Tottenham have so far tried to persuade Alessandro Bastoni to leave Inter Milan and head coach Antonio Conte has turned his attention to other goals to sign at least one center-back to strengthen the defense.
The 27-year-old Spurs became the fifth window after Richardson, Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic and Yves Bissouma joined Antonio Conte.
Langlett played 160 matches for Barcelona in 2018 from Sevilla for a fee of 35.9 million.
He made his debut in France in 2019 and appeared for his country 15 times.
