Club chief provides update on their pursuit of 28-year-old Tottenham player

By Saikat -

Real Betis chief has revealed that a deal to sign Giovani Lo Celso from Tottenham is a remote possibility for now. 

Lo Celso made the move from Betis to Tottenham in the summer of 2019. It was an initial loan move that became permanent in the following summer. The North London club forked out a significant fee to bring him to the club. But, unfortunately, the player hasn’t hit the expected heights.

The Argentine international has fallen down the pecking order under Ange Postecoglou and with his contract running out in 12 months, he has been linked with a move away. Multiple reports have suggested a possible return to Real Betis but according to the Spanish club’s sporting director Manu Fajardo, there is nothing on the cards yet.

Mucho Deporte covered the comments made by the Betis chief Fajardo during a press conference on Tuesday.

While talking about the possibility of bringing Lo Celso back to the club, he said: “He is a Tottenham player, and we owe respect to his entity. He left very good memories here, but it is still a remote option.”

Although Postecoglou was keen on having the player at his disposal for the 2023/24 season, the Australian manager barely used him. While he was involved in 24 matches, the 28-year-old was on the pitch for less than 600 minutes. He seems to be surplus to requirements at Tottenham and the North London outfit are hoping to cash in on him for the right price.

Betis admire Lo Celso given the kind of impact he had back in the day and they feel he could help with the potential departure of Nabil Fekir. But, the possibility of signing him again is unlikely for now.
