Earlier this year, Real Betis signed Giovani Lo Celso on a permanent transfer for €25m, after initially signing him on loan from Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Scoring 16 goals and registering five assists in all competitions in 2018/19 season, the Argentina international has drawn attention from Tottenham Hotspur.

Four days ago, ABC Sevilla reported the Champions League runners-up submitted a €40m bid, which was turned down by the La Liga side. Betis have to give 25% of any fee to PSG.

El Desmarque now claims the contacts between the two clubs have ‘reoccurred’ and there has been a ‘meeting with the senior leaders’ of Spurs for the 23-year-old.

Betis vice-chairman and CEO José Miguel López Catalán travelled to London and took advantage of the trip to the English capital to establish contacts with the Premier League side, who have long been keen on Lo Celso.

The player is currently with the national team preparing for the 2019 Copa America and the report explains his performance in Brazil could be pivotal for his transfer fee.

For now, Tottenham are still chasing him as El Desmarque end the report by stating Spurs ‘do not forget Lo Celso’.
