Earlier today we covered a report from Diario de Sevilla covering Tottenham’s interest in Giovani Lo Celso and where the potential deal was.

Spurs have been chasing the Argentine for much of the summer but have so far been unable to get a deal done because of Betis’ asking price.

The La Liga club want €75m and Tottenham don’t want to pay that, in fact, Diario reported that they were now holding out at €50m and Daniel Levy was refusing to go beyond that for the midfielder.

It was felt that the arrival of Nabil Fekir was working in Spurs’ favour and AS report that is certainly the case.

The newspaper states that Betis ‘need to get the money’ from the sale of Lo Celso, partly to pay for the capture of Fekir and to also fund other moves, their determination to sign striker Borja Iglesias.

Betis are ‘reluctant to accept’ Tottenham’s €50m bid but time is running out given the Premier League transfer window closes on August 8th.

At this moment in time, White Hart Lane is his only possible destination as Bayern consider the price Betis want is too much. Likewise, Atletico Madrid aren’t interested and have other targets.

That leaves Tottenham at the forefront and with plenty of control at this moment in time. They’re the only bidders and Betis are desperate to get a sale done at some point.

Daniel Levy will certainly be using that to his advantage, although with both standing firm, it seems this potential deal will run right down to the wire.
