No club has come close to meeting Real Betis’ asking price for Tottenham target Giovani Lo Celso, according to reports in Spain.
Spurs have been heavily linked with Lo Celso in recent weeks after initial reports claimed the Londoners had seen a first bid turned down for the midfielder. Betis later signed Nabil Fekir from Lyon, intensifying the speculation around Lo Celso’s future.
However, Spanish outlet Mucho Deporte claims Lo Celso will return to training with Betis on Tuesday and there is a belief he and Fekir could play together next season. That’s because the club is apparently yet to receive a suitable offer for Lo Celso.
Betis are said to value the 23-year-old at €75 million, meaning Tottenham would have to break their transfer record for the second time this summer following the signing of French midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon.
Lo Celso has missed the majority of Betis’ pre-season campaign as he has been recuperating after taking part at the Copa America with Argentina. Now he has returned to his club, perhaps we will discover more about the possibility of him becoming a Spurs player in the coming days.
