Tottenham have added a fifth summer signing as they prepare to fly out for a pre-season tour of South Korea.

Clement Lenglet has joined on loan from Barcelona for the season, adding to new recruits Richarlison, Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster.

The squad are now heading out on tour, but further signings are being targeted with seven weeks of the transfer window still to go.

Djed Spence

Tottenham and Middlesbrough remain locked in protracted negotiations over Djed Spence, Standard Sport understands.

It was initially hoped that Spence would join the squad in Asia, but that is now impossible despite the clubs discussing the finer details of the deal in the hope of making a breakthrough.

Spence is one of the most promising homegrown talents on the market and the 21-year-old is valued at between £15-£20million.

Pau Torres

Could Tottenham be set to add another defender to their ranks in the form of Pau Torres?

Journalist Pete O’Rourke believes Spurs have the edge over fellow linked side Manchester United.

He told GiveMeSport: “I think it would be fair to say that Spurs will be the frontrunners if it came down to the two clubs to sign Pau Torres. Champions League football will be a big carrot for the Spain international to bring him to England.

“Also, if Manchester United were to sign Lisandro Martinez, that means maybe Pau Torres is not at the top of their agenda right now either. If Tottenham were to move for Pau Torres, I think they would be pretty confident that they might be able to get a deal done.”

Japhet Tanganga

Bournemouth are discussing a deal with Tottenham for Japhet Tanganga, according to The Athletic.

Both a loan move and a permanent transfer are on the table as the newly promoted side look to bolster their defensive options.

Cherries boss Scott Parker has a great relationship with Spurs, having both played and coached at the club.

AC Milan and Napoli are also monitoring the player's situation.

Jack Clarke

Sunderland are closing in on a permanent deal to sign Jack Clarke, with the player having enjoyed a fruitful loan spell last season.

A deal, according to Football.London, is expected to be worth up to £10million should add-ons be it, meaning Spurs would recoup the fee paid three years ago.
