Football Insider claim that Aston Villa have now cooled their interest in Giovani Lo Celso.
Meanwhile, Rudy Galetti claimed on Thursday that Real Betis had made advances towards a late loan deal for Lo Celso, with Tottenham said to be insisting on adding an obligation to buy.
Aston Villa are no longer in the Lo Celso race
The door seems to have been shut on one particular destination for the midfielder, with Football Insider now claiming that a move to Villa Park no longer appears to be an option for the player.
The report explains that Lo Celso was a favourite of Unai Emery, which is why the Villans showed interest in the player earlier this summer.
However, following the arrival of Nicolo Zaniolo on loan, it is alleged that the West Midlands club have now cooled their interest in the 27-year-old.

As things stand, Lo Celso looks overwhelmingly likely to stay but things can change quite quickly in the final part of the transfer window.
If Tottenham can deal for Brennan Johnson over the line and they receive a lucrative offer for the Argentine, I can see the North London club being tempted to accept it.
