Tottenham Hotspur target, Giovani Lo Celso, is reportedly set to complete his medical today in London ahead of his transfer to the Lilywhites (Sky Sports).

However, sports journalist Paul Brown, who writes for the Daily Star, Express, and Mirror, has now revealed some details about the deal that some fans may not know.

The final fee for Lo Celso could reach as high as £69m, despite some reports stating that a deal of £55m had been agreed (Express).

Tottenham will apparently take the Argentine on loan for the first season, paying a fee of £14.7m to do so.

If Tottenham qualify for the Champions League next season, the deal will become permanent, which is when Spurs will pay that full amount.

However, if they do not qualify for the Champions League, Tottenham will be given the choice as to whether they want the player on a permanent deal or not.

Seems to be a clever move from Levy.
