Tottenham Hotspur should consider a move for the Sevilla ace.

Mauricio Pochettino manager

Mauricio Pochettino has a lot of work to do at Tottenham this summer, if he is to guide his side to their first major trophy since 2008 next season.

One particular area of concern for the Argentine will be his central defensive department, with Toby Alderweireld's future in north London far from certain.

If the Belgian does end up leaving Spurs, Poch will obviously have to bring in an able bodied replacement, and a useful option for them could be Sevilla defender Clément Lenglet.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail, and Tottenham should join the party.

Lenglet has a release clause inserted into his current contract with the La Liga side thought to be worth in the region of £30.8 million, according to the Daily Mail, and if Spurs sell Alderweireld for £60 million plus, they would easily be able to afford the 22-year-old centre-back.

The Sevilla ace is a supremely composed operator, and has the wonderful ability of being able to read the game, which enables him to snuff out danger before it truly develops.

Standing at 6ft 2in tall, Lenglet is also strong in the air, and he possesses all of the physical attributes that are required to be a success in the Premier League.

In today's ludicrously inflated transfer market, £30.8 million would represent excellent value for Tottenham, and they should not hesitate to bring the Frenchman to north London this summer.
