Tottenham Hotspur are reported to have rejected an approach from Juventus for Giovani Lo Celso.
The Argentine moved to North London last summer on a season-long loan deal which included an option to make the deal permanent (Spurs official).
Jose Mourinho’s side took up the option to secure a permanent deal for the 24-year-old in January following the exit of Christian Eriksen (BBC).
After a slow start to his time at Tottenham, particularly because of a hip injury, he has started to show glimpses of his potential.
Calciomercato claim that the Serie A champions have made an approach for the former Real Betis player only for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to reject it out of hand.
It is claimed that Juventus have been tracking the progress of Lo Celso after missing out on his signature four years ago when he joined Paris Saint-Germain from Rosario Central in his native Argentina.
Lo Celso was one of our brightest players last summer and the arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will hopefully allow the Argentina international more licence to focus his efforts on creating goals rather than tracking back to win possession.
