According to the newspaper Sport, Newcastle United has asked FC Barcelona about the situation of Clement Lenglet with the intention of reinforcing its defensive zone for the second part of the season in the Premier League.

The French center-back does not enter into the plans of FC Barcelona due to his poor performance last season, where he was one of the worst players in the team due to all his mistakes on an individual level in different games. Ronald Koeman lost all confidence in him and prefers to bet on Gerard Pique, Eric Garcia, Ronald Araujo and Oscar Mingueza.

FC Barcelona is looking for a new destination for Lenglet in this winter market to stop paying his salary and try to free up a staff space for the projection of the young talents that continue to leave the Masia.

The new owners of Newcastle United intend to make good moves in January, despite the fact that they cannot make a millionaire investment and they also do not have the hook in these first months to convince big stars.

The first objectives are discarded players from the best teams in the world and opportunities that the market can offer them, taking into account that they are fighting not to be relegated to the second division of England this season.
