In a recent tweet , Calciomercato journalist Alessio Lento mentioned that Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovani Lo Celso is ready to accept a loan move to Juventus. It is understood that the Spurs playmaker is willing to seal a loan move to Turin in search of more game time.
Primi approcci tra #LoCelso e la #Juventus. Il giocatore del #Tottenham gradisce molto l’opzione #SerieA e sarebbe pronto ad accettare anche un prestito. I bianconeri, però, non solo gli unici sulle tracce del centrocampista argentino @calciomercatoit #CMITmercato

Lo Celso’s Limited Playing Time At North London This Season
Lo Celso has struggled to catch the eye at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium during this campaign as he has found game time hard to come by over the past few months. The Argentine talent has participated in 15 matches for Antonio Conte‘s side this season, registering one goal and one assist across various competitions.
The 25-year-old has seen most of his playing opportunities come off the bench but has done well to average 1.1 shots, 0.6 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per game in the Premier League. He has even been tidy when distributing the ball from midfield after making 83% of his attempted passes in the English first division (stats via whoscored ).
Should Tottenham Boss Antonio Conte Let Lo Celso Go Out On Loan?
Lo Celso is a technically gifted footballer who can keep the ball moving quite well in the opponent’s half. He is a decent playmaker as he has got the vision to set up some decent openings for his teammates in the final third. The Argentine sensation can also be a hard man to dispossess when he is running at full swing towards the opponent’s penalty area. He can play as a box-to-box midfielder or as a winger down the right flank.
Lo Celso needs a change of scenery so that he can get his career back on track. Thus, it is no surprise that he is open to joining Juve on loan. Spurs should think about letting Lo Celso seal a temporary move away from the club so that he can come back as a better version of himself.
At 25, the Rosario-born midfielder is about to enter his prime and is under a long-term contract at the North London club. Hence, there is still plenty of time for the player to his fortunes around for the better at the top level.
