Report: Club have held a ‘meeting’ with Tottenham regarding 26-yr-old’s future

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovani Lo Celso was on loan at Villarreal last season and the Argentine international made quite an impression with the Spanish club.

The playmaker established himself as a key player for Unai Emery’s side and he was instrumental in their run to the Champions League semi-finals.

The player has been linked with a permanent move away from Tottenham this summer and it will be interesting to see where he ends up eventually.

There is no doubt that the Argentine is a quality player but he needs to join a club where he will get a regular run of games and that is simply not possible at Tottenham, as things stand.

Lo Celso needs to play regularly in order to cement his place in the Argentine squad ahead of the World Cup later this year and a permanent exit from Tottenham seems ideal.

According to reports via Fiorentina.It, Fiorentina are keen on providing the midfielder with an exit route this summer and the two clubs have apparently had a ‘meeting’ regarding a potential transfer.

It will be interesting to see whether the Italian outfit can agree on a deal with the Premier League side in the coming weeks and finalise the transfer.

The report adds that the Italian outfit are looking to sign the player on a loan deal with an option to buy permanently at the end of the season.

Spurs bought him because he was Spanish midfielder of year in 2018. He has NEVER been played in that central midfield position for Spurs. Great first touch passer which suits the Argies when Messi is playing alongside you.

He’s too lightweight for the Prem. Too slow as well for a central midfield role. Easily outmuscled then just gave up. Terrible signing and another one that no top clubs went near. Levy’s bargain hunting is a joke.

Cant help but notice that Conte puts emphasis on the physicality of his signings . It is standout that Gil, Lo Celso , Ndombele etc etc are not totally at home with the sheer brute force that can be some/most Premier League matches .
Our latest signings appear more robust , more attuned to hurly burly and high intensity of this division , possibly the strongest -fought of all the world leagues .
That has never been a policy at WHL and this manager is bringing a new mentality to our squad , interesting development and I hope that the fans give it a chance . Results , as ever , the catalyst for this re-think ……

Minutes from the “meeting”:

Levy: Hi Gio, did you find another club yet?
Gio: No.
Levy: Ok, remember, we’re not selling you for less than 30m. Adios.

Good player, Premiership was probably the wrong league and the last two Spurs managers’ tactics don’t accommodate him.
