With the conclusion of the Premier League, the Champions League and other domestic leagues, it is now time for the football off-season. The only thing that remains between now and the next season is the international break, when players return to their national teams. The likes of Kane, Eriksen and even young Juan Foyth are with their national teams right now.
We have read statements from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen so far on international duty. Kane has been asked about Spurs transfer targets while Eriksen is busy engineering a move away from Tottenham. Amidst all this, there is a barrage of players being linked with Spurs. One such player is Giovani Lo Celso of Real Betis.
Giovani Lo Celso is on international duty and Juan Foyth is with him
Giovani Lo Celso is a central midfielder who can also play in attacking midfield. The Argentine is a good dribbler of the ball and has a good long shot in him. At Real Betis, who are at best a mid-table Spanish side, he has scored 16 goals for the season. A midfielder scoring so many goals in a mediocre team can certainly step up with Tottenham.

The idea is that Eriksen will be sold and the proceeds reinvested to purchase a replacement. It is possible the replace would be none other than Lo Celso. Lo Celso is currently with the Argentina squad, where he has 12 caps and a goal to his name.
Young central defender Juan Foyth is also with the Argentina squad and the two were snapped in a picture together for the team. Many fans are believing that Foyth can put in a good word for Spurs in Lo Celso’s ears. Spurs are in dire need of new signings after having last purchased a first team player in the form of Lucas Moura from PSG some 18 months ago. Besides, Eriksen and some other players may leave in the summer.
To adequately replace and replenish the squad, Mauricio Pochettino is looking at a number of options.
However, fans and players first need a clear picture from the club about Mauricio Pochettino, whose future is undecided after the Champions League final.
