Ex-Spurs man backs current midfielder and states he should not be sold

Ex-Spurs midfielder Paul Stewart has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovani Lo Celso should not be sold during the current transfer window.

Tottenham have already let go of multiple players this summer. Juan Foyth left for £13.50m, Toby Alderweirld departed for £11.70m, and Erik Lamela left as part of a deal to sign Bryan Gil (Transfermarkt).

Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga also left the club as free agents earlier in the summer.

Lo Celso has played 65 times for Spurs in all competitions since signing for the club in 2019.

The Argentine was in some good form last season but struggled when he picked up a hamstring injury in December, which kept him out for 84 days – missing 23 games.

However, the midfielder is coming into the season on a high having just won the Copa America with Argentina.

Stewart has suggested that Lo Celso should not be one of the players heading to the exit door this summer.

He told Football FanCast: “I’d keep him because I think he could come good. It takes time to settle sometimes.

“He’s shown enough when I’ve seen him on the pitch to suggest he could become a really good player for Spurs, so I would be looking at keeping him for at least another season.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

Lo Celso looked so good in the second half of his first season with Spurs but has been injured ever since. I am interested to see if he can reach those heights consistently without injury.
