The incredible upsurge of Tottenham Hotspur under Mauricio Pochettino deserves massive acknowledgement for making it to the Champions League final defying the odds. They were on the verge of an exit time and again but showed incredible fighting spirit to turn things around in the dying moments.
However, the giants from North London are expected to splash the cash this summer and have been linked with an array of new names recently. According to Diario de Sevilla, Tottenham’s £52m bid for Argentine star Giovani Lo Celso has been rejected by Real Betis who made his loan move permanent last month following a successful stint.
Beticos finished 10th in the La Liga standings and are expecting an amount at least three times of the £20m they paid to the French giants to acquire his services. Lo Celso found the net 16 times and assisted five more in 45 appearances across all competitions exhibiting his excellence in the middle of the park.
Spurs, meanwhile, are sweating over the future of Christian Eriksen amid rumours of a potential switch to Real Madrid (as reported by Independent). Although they did not bring in a new face over the past couple of windows, Pochettino is expected to splash the cash this term to reconfigure the squad adding depth as well as quality.
The Lilywhites are pretty much interested in the Albiceleste international and likely to keep on pushing for a summer deal in spite of Betis’ resolve.
The 23-year-old midfielder is known for his strong dribbling skills, ability to hold on to the ball, work rate, hard tackling traits as well as shooting accuracy. He is not only capable of featuring in the central midfield areas, but also as a ‘number 10’ just behind the frontline. The flexibility he offers would enrich Spurs and help them keep pace with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League title battle.
Lo Celso, an academy prospect of Rosario Central, was roped in by PSG for £8.5m back in the summer of 2016. Despite a challenging first year, the youngster registered a regular role last season in the star-studded Parisiens midfield. But the appointment of Thomas Tuchel saw him falling down the pecking order, and the club put him up for sale even though he was labelled as their NextGen sensation during Unai Emery’s regime. However, a transfer to Tottenham would bring him back in the limelight and offer an opportunity to flourish further under the able guidance of his fellow countryman.
