Barcelona have announced Clement Lenglet as their second signing of the season from Sevilla on their social media page.
The Catalan giants have been in pursuit of a center-back before the end of the previous season and the 23-year-old have been on their radar.
The French defender posted impressive performances in La Liga last season and can be added as back up for Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti.
The move is reported to have cost the Nou Camp outfit €35m in a five-year deal after spending just 18 months in Spain following his arrival from Nancy in 2017.
The youngster has also been sorted after by Premier League giants Manchester United but he preferred to join Barca.
La Blaugrana paid Lenglet’s full €35m release clause after failing to negotiate a lower fee for the France international.
