Arsenal and Tottenham have been offered the opportunity to loan Clement Lenglet from FC Barcelona this summer.

The north London rivals battled for the top four last season, with Spurs finishing just under fourth ahead of the Gunners.

Both Antonio Conte and Mikel Arteta will try to improve their squads ahead of next season.

Arsenal and Spurs have been linked with a whole host of players, including Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus.

In the meantime, The Times report that Barcelona centre-back Lenglet has been made available on loan to both north London clubs.

The 26-year-old is a left-footed defender who has made 160 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions and plays for the France national team.

Arsenal have had to settle for the Europa League for next season and ex-Gunners goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny believes it could be a few years before his former club are back in the Champions League.

“As a fan, it was really disappointing,” Szczesny said.

“They did well and nobody would have said before the season started that they had a chance.

“They were still there with two games left of the season. It’s disappointing but they’ve done a really good job this year.”

“I can see Mikel’s vision of football, he’s got a young team so they’ll be fine,” he added

“A few more years and they will be back in the Champions League.”
