On Saturday, we carried claims from AS and Diario de Sevilla about Tottenham interest in Real Betis’ Giovani Lo Celso.
Spurs were said to be willing to pay €60m for the midfielder, and there was no mention of interest from elsewhere. The claims felt like they had something behind them, being reported independently by different journalists based in Seville.
Sunday’s edition of Marca hypes everything up by claiming Manchester United and Real Madrid are also keen.
Tottenham have been ‘first to get to work’ for the signing, and it’s stated the London club are ‘pressing’ the most to get signing.
They actually seem to be the only ones pressing at all, because when Marca’s claims are boiled down, it’s stated United have just been watching (which could have instead been a scouting trip for Junior Firpo) and Madrid have contacted Lo Celso’s agents for a chat about his future plans.
There doesn’t appear a great deal for Tottenham to worry about, other than Betis getting carried away with the amount they think they can get.
