Tottenham have agreed a fee for Giovani Lo Celso with Real Betis, according to the Daily Record.

Lo Celso has been heavily linked with Spurs throughout the summer but a potential deal has been on and off the table in recent weeks, primarily because of the uncertainty surrounding Christian Eriksen’s future.

In June, Eriksen admitted he may seek a new challenge this season, but Real Madrid – the club he is apparently most likely to join – have prioritised other deals in the current transfer window.

Regardless, it looks as if Tottenham are attempting to sign a replacement for the Dane with Lo Celso and Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes the names being mooted. Fernandes is thought to be attracting interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid too. Maybe that is why Spurs have reportedly sped up their pursuit of Lo Celso.

Duncan Castles of the Daily Record claims Tottenham have now agreed a £55 million fee for the Argentinian, so if the deal goes through he will not overtake Tanguy Ndombele as the club’s new record signing.

The report also suggests Sporting are willing to let Fernandes go for £55 million plus bonuses, so perhaps Spurs are keeping the Portugal international in mind as a contingency plan.

  1. Ffs don’t you people have anything better to do than write crap and we for that matter anything better to do than read these lies and bullshit.
    One day Betis refusé to deal with us further and the very next second they have accepted our latest offer, neither of which I am sure is true.
    Now just give it a rest and only report facts.You should be fined for making false statements.Now go back under your stone and hibernate.

  2. If Levy REALLY wanted to bring Lo Celso, Fernandez or Dybala to the club he wouldn’t be arguing about every little penny. Ndombele wasn’t cheap but he accepted we needed him, so he splashed the cash without too much haggling. We will be lucky to finish top 6 this season, not because of our players we might still be able to keep hold of, but the damage Levy is doing by building everyone at the clubs’ hopes up only to knock them down again. I feel for Potch I really do. We need some stability and with Levy in charge there is no hope of that!

    If you go after a player that you cannot afford, you make an offer, if they say no, give them then your final offer and if it is STILL no, move on and go after someone else.

    • Pessimist. Ignorant. Fool. All i have to say to you sir. Levy is the best thing to happen to Spurs this century. Poch the 2nd best thing. We would still be a mid table team fighting to be top ten if not avoiding relegation if it wasn’t for Levy. Top training facility. One of the best stadiums in the world. Managing to create a team capable of beating the best teams in Europe on a regular basis. If none of this is good enough for you maybe you should go and support a team like Real Madrid who splash cash like there’s no tomorrow. Or even PSG who do the same. But i know who i would rather support. Certainly not teams who buy their success.
