Josko Gvardiol transfer blow.

RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol is set to agree a new deal at the Bundesliga side, ending Tottenham Hotspur’s hopes of bringing the Croatian to north London.

After the attempt to bring Inter Milan’s Alessandro Bastoni failed, Gvardiol was thought to be Conte’s ideal replacement for Ben Davies on the left side of a defensive three with Spurs believed to be close to making a deal happen after making contact with the Bundesliga outfit according to GFFN.

Spurs have been on the lookout for a left-sided centre-back all window and after seeing a move for Inter’s Alessandro Bastoni fall through they turned their attention to Lenglet.

Things have progressed significantly since then, and can now confirm that Tottenham have agreed a one-season loan deal with Barça. It is believed that the deal also includes an option-to-buy clause.

Spurs manager Antonio Conte is looking to add to his squad quickly and prepare his team well in advance of the transfer window closing by signing Richarlison and Clement Lenglet on loan from Barcelona.

He has already brought in Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster and is looking to add attacking depth to what was at times a stretched squad last season.
