Early July was a busy time for Tottenham Hotspur in terms of incoming players, as Jack Clarke ended the club’s 18-month signing drought with a £10m move from Leeds (BBC).

After announcing that Clarke would rejoin Leeds on loan for the season, Spurs than revealed Tanguy Ndombele as the club’s record signing, with an initial fee of £53.8m which could rise to £62.8m (BBC).

However, that might not be it in terms of records for Spurs this window, as the Mirror claim that Tottenham may break their record transfer fee again this summer.

The report claims that Spurs are ‘set to’ smash their record fee by signing Giovani Lo Celso for £70m from Real Betis.

The Mirror also state that Lo Celso is keen to make the move to Tottenham this summer.

Tottenham had a £53m bid for the attacking midfielder turned down last month (BBC), but are said to be ready to revisit with an improved offer.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Have seen some people saying we should include Lamela in a swap. So we lose 50 to 75% of last years defence, plus lose our creator and back up creator from last season, and revamp our midfield all in one transfer window. What could possibly go wrong?

    Lamela is a quality player, a worker and turns up in the big games. Anyone would think Lamela played badly last season listening to the idiots, Lamela came on very late against liverpool in our home leg and got a great goal and he was turned down a stonewall penalty, he got a wondergoal and assist against Barca in our 4-2 loss with no Eriksen, Alli, Dembele or Vertonghen.

    With Lamela there is an injury issue, and that forces him to be sidelined a lot and makes it hard for him to displace Son when he’s fit as Poch goes with favourites but if we lose Eriksen, regardless of who replaces him we need to keep Lamela because he does change games.
