Bookies Suspend Betting For Midfielder After Making Tottenham 4/9 Favourites: Should Spurs Sign Him?

Article updated on June 26, 13.35: A previous version of this article mistakenly identified Giovani Lo Celso as a PSG player. That has since been rectified.

The United Kingdom bookmakers, Sky Bet has suspended betting on midfielder Giovani Lo Celso’s future after previously listing Tottenham Hotspur as 4/9 favourites to secure the Argentine talent’s services in this off-season (via Football.London). The South American sensation had a brilliant campaign with Real Betis in the La Liga last season.

Giovani Lo Celso’s Remarkable Loan Spell In The Spanish Top-Flight

Mauricio Pochettino’s side is still looking for an ideal replacement for Christian Eriksen who wants to leave the North London club this summer after narrowly missing out on a UEFA Champions League winner’s medal last season.

The Rosario born sensation could fit in well at Spurs as he has age on his side and has incredible potential to become a world-class midfielder in the future. Lo Celso put in multiple match-winning performances for Betis last season which has raised his stock in the European transfer market.

The Argentine midfield ace made 46 appearances for the Spanish outfit last term, registering 16 goals while creating six assists in all competitions. He has also represented Argentina in 16 international matches and has scored once for them so far.

What Will The South American Prospect Add To Pochettino’s Team?

Lo Celso is quick enough to make some dangerous runs from midfield and tends to create space for himself in the opposition half. He can also pass the ball accurately and can pick out a killer pass in the attacking end of the pitch. 

The addition of a midfielder of Lo Celso’s attacking potential will undoubtedly bolster Mauricio Pochettino’s squad at the North London club. He will not only score more goals for the Spurs midfield but will also increase their creativity at the centre of the pitch.

Should Spurs Recruit Lo Celso?

Le Celso has all the makings to become a star in the English top-flight as long as he can continue improving his game on the field. The midfielder will be a fantastic fit for Pochettino’s brand of football at the new White Hart Lane. However, one can argue whether he would be able to handle the physical toll of Premier League football.
