Tottenham Hotspur signed Giovani Lo Celso on a season-long loan deal from Real Betis and the transfer will be made permanent for €40m if Spurs qualify for next season’s Champions League.
There’s another clause in a contract that will allow the north London club to sign the Argentina international on a permanent transfer for a lower fee of €34m in January.
Betis president Ángel Haro was of the belief the English side will activate the clause in the winter market.
On December 27th, we covered claims from Spain the La Liga club are waiting for José Mourinho’s side to make a decision on Lo Celso.
It was also explained the funds (€34m) from Lo Celso’s potential sale to Tottenham in January would help Betis strengthen their midfield for the second half of the season.
These claims have once again been relayed by AS and they claim there’s ‘dilemma’ at Tottenham about Lo Celso, mainly due to his failure to replicate last season’s form (16 goals and six assists for Betis) for Spurs this campaign.
Online, AS mention the same information and they further go on to add there’s ‘no certainty’ about Tottenham making Lo Celso’s deal permanent in the winter market.
Lo Celso is yet to score a goal or register an assist in 11 Premier League appearances.
