The transfer window remains open for another one month in England. It gives clubs who have business remaining to sort things out before the Premier League season kicks-off. Few clubs have come close to the kind of spending Tottenham have overseen to bring Tanguy NDombele. Now is the time for the club to build on that very strong foundation and assemble a squad worthy of being Champions. It can start with the acquisition of Giovani Lo Celso.
Tottenham up their offer to £68 million for Giovani Lo Celso
Tottenham’s interest in Giovani Lo Celso is as old as their pursuit of Tanguy NDombele. Due to the nature of respective club presidents, their was little in terms of negotiation room for the France international. However, it is a different story with Lo Celso. He has an £88 million release clause but it shouldn’t be impossible to convince the Spanish club to sell for something below that.
If reports are accurate, Tottenham have upgraded their offer to £68 million. It is five million pounds more than what Spurs paid for Tanguy NDombele but Pochettino certainly thinks his compatriot is worth the money.
The funds must be raised by player sales
If Tottenham Hotspur have to sign another big name player in the same league as their club record signing NDombele, they need to spend money in the same region as well. The club has already splurged a combined £76 million between Tanguy and Jack Clarke. They even tried for Giovani Lo Celso with a smaller bid of £53 million, which was rejected by Real Betis.
For further transfers, the club will hope to raise funds from player sales. A number of players like Christian Erisken and Kieran Trippier are expected to leave but their have been no interested clubs in the two. So Tottenham want to clear the departure list before they finalise the incomings.
