Barcelona have signed Sevilla centre-back Clement Lenglet for £32m on a five-year contract after the club met his release clause.
The 23-year-old had long been linked with a move to a bigger club after impressive performances with Sevilla whom he joined from French side Nancy in January 2017, and scored four goals in 52 games last season.
Lenglet, who has been capped at all levels of youth football for France but missed out on Didier Deschamps World Cup squad, now has a £265m release clause in his Barcelona contract.
Barcelona describe Lenglet as “one of the most promising defenders on the planet.”
Lenglet started in both Champions League last-16 ties against Manchester United last season, as Sevilla reached the quarter-finals.
Barcelona say he “completes a spectacular defence” alongside fellow centre-backs Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen.
