Giovani Lo Celso happy at Tottenham amid Juventus speculations, claims Fabrizio Romano
Speaking on the Here We Go Podcast (h/t Football.london), reputed journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur star Giovani Lo Celso is happy at the club amid speculated interest from Serie A champions Juventus.
Lo Celso joined Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2019 from Real Betis, initially on loan, before making the transfer permanent in January last year. The Argentine international has grown into a key player for Jose Mourinho over the past year but has been battling injury issues for some time now.
Nevertheless, speculations of interest in the midfielder have been doing rounds of late, with Romano himself recently revealing that Lo Celso had many admirers in Spain.
Add to that, Juventus have also been mentioned as a potential suitor for the Argentine. However, Romano has insisted that there isn’t much to those reports, while also adding that Lo Celso is happy at Tottenham and is committed to the club. (h/t Football.london)
“He is happy at Tottenham and the situation is under control and Juventus is not working for it.”
Prior to getting injured in mid-December, Lo Celso had been in good form for Tottenham. The 24-year-old had produced a decent tally of five goals and an assist in 19 games in all competitions. (h/t Transfermarkt)
