New Barcelona signing Clement Lenglet says he wants to play as much as he can after joining the club from Sevilla.

The defender arrives at the Camp Nou after Barcelona paid his release clause of €35.9 million, and he’s not just there to make up the numbers.

“I’m really happy, it’s a dream for all players. I’m happy and proud to be wearing the shirt,” he said.

“At the club I want to win trophies. I want to play as much as I can, to grow as a player and to enjoy the stadium.

“I’m going to try to give everything, work very hard so people are happy.”

Lenglet will have work to do to force himself into the team as Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti will expect to start the season as first choice.
