While it’s said there’s no rest for the wicked, it appears that’s also the case for Tottenham’s club doctors. The Spurs staff will once again be called into action this weekend to oversee Clement Lenglet’s scheduled medical as Antonio Conte continues his seismic squad shake-up this summer.
The Barcelona centre-back is set to be the latest arrival in the white half of north London as his imminent season-long loan move nears completion. According to Mundo Deportivo, the French defender has permission from the Spanish club to conclude his move this weekend.
The Spanish outlet also assert that the 27-year-old has already travelled to London in order to complete his medical examination over the coming days. Lenglet is expected to be presented as a Spurs player early next week, providing all goes well.
Tottenham’s medical staff have been the busiest among the Premier League’s 20 clubs this summer having already checked over four new signings. Spurs snapped up free transfers Fraser Forster and Ivan Perisic at the start of the summer and have since added Yves Bissouma, after striking a £25million deal with Brighton, and Richarlison, who joined from Everton in a £60m deal on Friday.
