Juventus are ‘ready’ to make a move for Tottenham star Giovani Lo Celso, according to reports in Italy.
After a slow start due to injury under Mauricio Pochettino, Lo Celso became a regular in Jose Mourinho’s starting line-up last term and was among Spurs’ most consistent performers over the course of the campaign.
With that in mind, Mourinho will have no intention of letting the Argentine go – but that apparently won’t prevent Juventus from trying.
Italian outlet Calcio Mercato claims Juventus were tracking Lo Celso before he left Rosario Central for Paris Saint-Germain, and the Serie A champions are now said to be considering another swoop.
However, the report says Mourinho has labelled Lo Celso not for sale, which is hardly a surprise.
We think there is just about no chance Lo Celso will depart this summer. He is simply too important and could even yet improve after an impressive debut season in England.
The 24-year-old looked slightly less slick on the ball after the Premier League’s restart, presumably because he was carrying a minor injury. Hopefully he is back to his best next term.
