Musical chairs? West Ham might yet play a key role in the exit of Giovani Lo Celso from Spurs

By Saikat -

West Ham United have been linked with a move for the Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski.

The 28-year-old Polish international midfielder has established himself as an important player for the Italian club and Napoli are reportedly reluctant to sell him this summer.

However, the Hammers are keen on signing the player to strengthen their creative department.

If the Londoners manage to agree on a fee with Napoli for the midfielder, the Italians could look to replace him with Giovani Lo Celso.

The 26-year-old Tottenham midfielder has been linked with a move away from the Premier League club this summer and Napoli could be an interesting destination for him.

The Argentine playmaker needs to play regular first-team football in order to cement his place in the Argentine national squad for the upcoming World Cup.

It is evident that he is surplus to requirements at Tottenham and he is not a key part of Antonio Conte’s first team plans.

The report from CalcioNapoli24 states that ‘Tottenham is willing to let him leave’ on loan with an option to buy.

Lo Celso was on loan at Villarreal last season and he managed to impress with Unai Emery’s side. The Argentine helped the Spanish club finish in the top four and reach the semifinals of the Champions League.

Lo Value must be some sort of (insert word here) for Conte to allude to bad attitude when we already have Ndonkey with attitude.
I would love to know what went on between the 2 of them.
He certainly has a good reputation in Spain and would fit Italy as well so we should get a good deal for him but anyone found a suitor for Ndonk yet I recall weeks ago one of those lame bloggers having a banner that he was going to Turkey but we had better wait for Einstein to confirm if it is true.

I don’t think Lo Celso has a bad attitude like Ndom does.. He’s just not good enough for a top 6 team in the premier league.. He could play for most teams in our bottom half, and most Spanish teams. That Spanish league is less physical. Italian league is more physical like ours. So any Spanish team would suit him.
Ndombele is a lost cause. Has the skills and could have been great like millions of other wannabes. He hasn’t got the minerals upstairs. I can’t see any club wanting him, nor him accepting a huge drop in wages which he would have to do.. We’re stuck with our very own Ozil unfortunately.

I’m not sure where this thing about Gio having a bad attitude has sprouted from. He’s always been good for Argentina and good in Spain which is a top league. He doesn’t seem suited to the week in week our grind of the Premiership.

However, he’s never been picked as a regular by any Spurs manager since he arrived. Had injuries, hasn’t suited the system or the manager had other options available. I still think he’s good enough to justify the initial hype but he needs regular game time. He never once had that at Spurs, mainly due to the management chaos since Pochettino left…

Most of these problems are completely of Levy’s making…
