Real Betis ‘haven’t forgotten’ about Tottenham Hotspur’s Giovani Lo Celso, according to AS.

Spurs signed the midfielder from the La Liga side in 2019, a year after he joined them. Lo Celso starred for the latter during the 2018/19 season, managing 16 goals and six assists.

The Argentina international hasn’t managed to replicate that form at Tottenham and his game time under Ange Postecoglou has been limited this year.

Recent claims have stated the 28-year-old wants to leave the north London club in the next window and is in contact with Real Betis.

On Thursday, Real Betis sporting director Manu Fajardo dropped a hint of the possibility of Lo Celso returning to the club. AS relay his comments and then give their own take on the conditions needed to sign him.

It’s claimed the Andalusian club have written the Tottenham man’s name in capital letters. They are ‘dreaming’ of having him in their squad next season, after Spurs refused to let Lo Celso join them on loan last summer.

Although the South American’s deal lasts until 2025, financial difficulties could make it difficult for Manuel Pellegrini’s side to sign him.

AS state the transfer would be ‘almost impossible’ if Real Betis fail to qualify for Europe next season. They are currently eighth in the table, five points behind sixth placed Real Sociedad.

Lo Celso is ‘considering leaving’ Tottenham in the summer and would have a good chance of returning to Real Betis, if they make it to Europe.
