One Italian journalist with his finger on the pulse is Gianluca Di Marzio.
A lead piece on the respected hack’s website this morning is concerning the possible move of Lo Celso to Tottenham this summer.
Keen eye readers will recall that this blog picked up a rumour earler this week about this rumour from Spanish outlet AS.
Giovanni Lo Celso is an interesting call.
Currently with La Liga side Real Betis, the boy may be wishing to strecth his wings a little. Betis finished 10th in the league and as a consquence won’t be offing teh 23 year old European football anytine soon.
Additionally club’s midfield is crawling with players making their laboured swansongs from the game – William Carvlaho, Javi Garcia, Canales and Guadado. So the Argentine’s ambitions may be a tad unfulfilled right now.
€70million is a comparatively collossal amount of money for Tottenham to spend on a player, however one can only hesitate to imagine how complex the payment plan might be.
Di Marzio believes talks are advanced and the bid is now being considered.
