Report: Spurs make decision on Giovani Lo Celso after failing to agree a fee

Tottenham Hotspur will be keen to invest in their Champions League finalist squad from last season with some big signings this summer.

This would make a nice change for Tottenham fans, as they have gone over 16 months without seeing a new face arrive at Hotspur Way.

However, it appears that Spurs are looking at ending that drought and bringing in a new central midfielder this transfer window, after already having a bid turned down.

The BBC report that Spurs had a £53m bid rejected for Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, as the player has an £88m buyout clause.

The Express say that Real Betis want £70m for the player this summer, and Spurs are falling short of that valuation.

The report goes on to say that Tottenham have now decided to raise extra cash by selling the likes of Christian Eriksen and Kieran Trippier.

If this is true, it could be some time before Spurs fans see Lo Celso in North London.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I agree that Spurs should only be spending big money on a playmaker like Lo Celso if Eriksen leaves the club. We don’t need to shell out £70m for that kind of player if Eriksen is staying, especially when we could spend it on other needed positions such as right-back and holding midfield.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Thus far I haven’t seen a thing to convince me that Levy is going to act with any strength in resolution to sign/bring in new players that will raise the squads level. It feels we are in for yet another a pre- season of speculative meandering and disappointment, and on the back of two barren transfer windows that is utterly unacceptable.
