OL are betting everything on a Barça defender


By: Manu Tournoux

Clément Lenglet’s future has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks.

Until Friday, the French defender had not played a single minute in the Premier League during his loan spell at Aston Villa, leading to reports that FC Barcelona would look to recall him in January, before relaunching him .

AC Milan and Napoli are two of the clubs that have shown interest in Lenglet for the second half of the season, and The Team have now reported that Lyon are the latest club keen to sign the 28-year-old, who has no future in Catalonia.

FC Barcelona would like to sell Lenglet due to his financial problems, but they may struggle to pay the asking price. However, if he returns quickly from Aston Villa, it could open the door to a permanent departure.

The problem for Barcelona is that Aston Villa manager Unai Emery wants to keep Lenglet until the summer, so the chances of selling him before then seem rather slim.
