Report: Atletico Madrid latest Spanish club eyeing Tottenham Hotspur midfielder

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur are likely to move on from midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, who spent the last six months of the 2021-22 season on loan to Villarreal. The Argentine boosted his stock during The Yellow Submarine’s run to the UEFA Champions League semifinals. 

Villarreal wants to hold onto the 25-year-old permanently, but they face competition for Lo Celso. AS (via Foot Mercato) reports that Atletico Madrid would also like to secure the Tottenham midfielder. 

Atletico Madrid has long had an interest in Lo Celso as they tried to sign him three years ago, but they could not meet the demands of Real Betis, and the midfielder, therefore, joined Spurs. 

Manager Diego Simeone remains a big fan of the Tottenham man, so it is no surprise that they’re revisiting their interest in him. Lo Celso has seen his best football come while in La Liga, so it’s like he will want to remain, and perhaps joining the Colchoneros is an option.

A very decent player, perhaps not particularly suited to the Premiership but that’s been said about many great players over the years. He just isn’t the garbage some like to spin…

I agree. Gio has some ability. Never really given a full run in the team here. I wonder if he can change Conte’s mind after a full preseason? It wouldn’t shock me if he stays, especially if we have trouble signing attacking players we are “in the mix” for.

His transfer to us was made permanent during Jose’s time, a club decision like all transfers and never the coach. Thing about Conte is that he has quite an idiosyncratic tactical approach and he needs a fairly specific profile of player for the. All the cogs need to work the way he wants his machine to run…

You’re right about Conte. Just not sure if he’s had a long enough look at Gio to see if he fits. I guess we’ll find out soon.
