Giovani Lo Celso has now reached the number 1 priority on every fans ‘wish list’. Now that Tanguy NDombele is officially a Spurs player, you’d expect Daniel Levy to fix his sights on the next top target. There’s still no demand in the market for any goods labeled ‘Christian Eriksen’. Unless that needle moves, it is unlikely that the team will buy Giovani Lo Celso according to Sky Sports.
Giovani Lo Celso is too hot to handle
No. The player himself isn’t on fire. It’s just his transfer valuation by his very shrewd current club. They bought him for £20 million and now want somewhere around £70 million. That’s just as Jean-Michel Aulas like it himself. Daniel Levy, fresh off spending a club record £64m on a certain Frenchman isn’t really keen on breaking that record so soon.
So he will wait and watch, after which Betis may give an ultimatum saying “take it or leave it” at their price. Depending on how much Pochettino wants the player, Levy may budge or not. If Eriksen isn’t sold, it’s unlikely Spurs will move for Giovani Lo Celso.
Real Betis want £70 million for the Argentine
Real Betis signed a contract with Lo Celso when he signed permanently from PSG that had a release clause worth £88 milllion. Tottenham have two options: to pay the release clause or negotiate a lower price with Betis. This second option has most likely already played out between the two clubs.
The price Betis want is £70 million, even more than the fee for NDombele. Should Tottenham reignite the Argentine’s signing, it will be only after selling Christian Eriksen.
