Tottenham fans will likely remember that it was a hectic transfer deadline day back in the summer when the club signed Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham and Giovani Lo Celso on loan from Real Betis in the dying hours (BBC).
A new report has now suggested that Tottenham’s decision on whether to activate Lo Celso’s loan clause that will allow them to purchase him for a reduced price this month could go down to the wire too.
Spurs have the option to purchase the player now for €32m or wait until the summer where it will become €40m, a figure they would be forced to pay if they qualify for the Champions League (ABC Sevilla).
Betis are confident that Spurs will activate and pay the €32m clause and will not contemplate reducing the price further.
As a result, Spurs may leave it until the last moment, which would give Betis little time to spend said money.
