Both Arsenal and Tottenham are claimed to want to snap up the 26-year-old Frenchman on a two-year loan deal, taking him to the Premier League.


Spurs chased Lenglet’s signature last summer after Fabio Paratici first arrived, but the player did not want to leave Barcelona; he is in no rush to make a decision this year.



He could be on the move this summer, however a two-year loan is off the table.


According to Catalan daily SPORT, Barcelona will only loan Lenglet out for a season as a new rule, which comes into effect from 1st July, prevents a longer loan spell.



Barcelona are to study the fine print of the new rule to see if there is a workaround.


At present though any loan deal would only be able to run for a single year.



The Catalan giants could attempt to include a purchase option in the loan agreement, which could mean Lenglet may have played his last game for the club if he departs.
