Barcelona are interested in signing Giovani Lo Celso, according to Spanish outlet Fichajes.
Lo Celso, who enjoyed Copa America glory with Argentina just under 24 hours before England lost the Euro 2020 final, has been with Tottenham for almost two years, but hasn’t yet hit the heights that many would have hoped during his time in north London.
He was impressive pre-lockdown, stepping up to the plate when Heung Min Son and Harry Kane were out injured, but the 25-year-old suffered a hamstring injury before Christmas last season which forced him to miss almost half of the 2020-2021 campaign.
Lo Celso returned three months later and was a surprise inclusion in the starting line-up for the Carabao Cup final, one of five starts under Ryan Mason.
However, the Argentine has scored just once and added three assists in his 46 Premier League appearances and hasn’t settled into English football despite showing glimpses of his obvious quality.
He cost Tottenham around £27m when he signed permanently from Real Betis last January, but Fichajes believe that La Liga giants Barcelona are keen on signing the former PSG man.
