Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly snubbed the opportunity to sign two players in order to prioritise their interest in Giovani Lo Celso.
The Daily Star report that Paris Saint-Germain’s Julian Draxler and Seville attacking midfielder Pablo Sarabia have both been offered to Spurs but the Champions League finalists have no appetite to bring either player to North London.
Spurs have already had a bid rejected by Real Betis for Lo Celso which the report claims was £35million up front with the remainder of the £53million fee based on add-ons.
The La Liga outfit are looking to receive the £88.9million release clause in his contract, despite only paying a reported fee of £19.8million to secure his services from PSG after an impressive season-long loan spell in Spain (Daily Mail).
The 23-year-old is currently on international duty with Argentina at the Copa America which could see his stock further rise and result in a bidding war with other clubs who may be keen on the midfielder.
If Tottenham have snubbed the opportunity to sign Julian Draxler, it could be a huge mistake. The German is proven on the biggest stage and would have been a valuable addition to the midfield, however, we must trust in Mauricio Pochettino’s decision making.
