Giovani Lo Celso has been restricted to less than 30 minutes of action in the league since Antonio Conte arrived at Tottenham Hotspur, as injuries forced him to miss seven matches in the last two months.
Fichajes.net, however, state the north London club have made the 25-year-old available in the market since he doesn’t fit into the Italian’s system. Therefore, his ‘departure seems to be imminent’.
The attacking midfielder wants to have continuity, to represent Argentina at the World Cup in Qatar in the ‘best way possible’.
Due to the current situation, his valuation has dropped, so much so it’s claimed Spurs are willing to let him leave for half the money they invested in his signing.
As per Fichajes.net, Lo Celso cost the English club around €32m.
It’s claimed the South American is a ‘market opportunity’ for several clubs and Atlético Madrid are one of the main interested parties. Lo Celso’s price tag, quality and versatility have seen Diego Simeone fall in love with his compatriot.
The Tottenham player ‘wouldn’t frown upon’ returning to Spain, where he ‘showed his highest level’ during his time with Real Betis.
Despite Atlético’s interest, Fichajes.net state there has been no contact between the two clubs so far. The La Liga winners must first work on exits before bringing in new faces.
