Conte is also keen on adding £55M rated Villarreal star defender despite the arrival of Barça loanee

By Eddie Razo -

The arrival of Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet is close to occurring. Still, it seems as though Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte isn’t content with the France international filling the left-footed center-back.

According to a report from the Mirror, the Italian is still looking for more at the position and remains keen on wrapping up a deal for Villarreal’s Pau Torres. 

Spurs were linked to Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni, and that interest has gone cold; it seems the north London club moved on to other potential targets. Torres was part of the Yellow Submarine squad that reached the UEFA Champions League semifinal last season.

Furthermore, some praised Torres’ leadership and dominant displays from the back during that run. Nonetheless, whether it’s the 25-year-old Spanish defender or another player, Conte appears to want depth for that side of the backline. 

Last season, he had to utilize Ben Davies, and it’s likely he doesn’t want to have to do that again next season; the 52-year-old wants players capable of playing that role.

This is weird.
Lenglet is leaving Barcelona only because he isnt getting enough game time so will he fight it out with Torres and Davies?
Leave it a year Tonio then go back in for Bastoni,

Davies is top class in the LCB position.

No he isn’t..
I’ve also got a bad feeling he will be charged with rape..
A 29 year old international premier league player has been arrested in Barnet North London..
This narrows down to just two players, Ben Davies and Thomas Partey.

I just read the respective club is taking the allegations seriously, and the accused player will not be going on the pre season tour..

Thomas Partey has just left with Arsenal to go on their pre season tour..

I may be missing another 29 year old player who has a mansion in Barnet. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.

Happy to suggest that such inferred allegations could end up costing you your home in a civil action.

Ben Davies is on his honeymoon and the exact location of the other parties has yet to be entirely confirmed.

Inferred allegations? Not quite.. A player has definitely been arrested according to multiple sources.. I hoped it wasn’t Ben of course. If he’s still on his honeymoon then it’s not him.
If Partey has gone on his pre season then it can’t be him.
There’s obviously another 29 year old.

Happy to inform you that no chancer is taking my house mate.. Lol

It could even be a Chavski player, though quite a distance to commute..
