Barcelona have completed a deal to sign highly rated French defender Clement Lenglet from Sevilla for €35.9million, with the player set to sign a five-year contract.

Lenglet, 23, has signed a five-year deal at the Nou Camp after the Spanish champions met his buy-out clause.

It has been claimed that Barca have activated the Frenchman's €35 million (R553 million) release clause after Sevilla refused to negotiate with the Blaugrana.

After joining Sevilla from Nantes for €3.5m in January of 2017, Lenglet impressed in La Liga and the Champions League last season, his first full season in Spanish football.

It is believed that Lenglet is now in pre-season training with Pablo Machin's Sevilla, but will leave their camp and travel to Barca soon, where he will be presented as their new signing, according to Sport.

But Barcelona clearly believe he has the sufficient experience to challenge Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti for a place in central defence next season.

Three goals in three games capped an impressive World Cup for Colombia's Mina, who will have no shortage of takers if Barca decide to sell this summer.
