Tottenham official intends to make £42.7m Spurs star’s departure a summer priority

Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur chief Daniel Levy prioritises Giovani Lo Celso sale

According to The Express, Tottenham Hotspur chief Daniel Levy is prioritising the sale of Giovani Lo Celso in the summer transfer window. The midfielder has been in fine form since joining Villarreal on a season-long loan deal back in January.

Levy is looking to raise some funds to back Antonio Conte through transfer signings this summer. The former is planning to facilitate some departures for that reason, and he has identified Lo Celso as a means to meet their needs. The chief intends to sell the midfielder at the earliest to make room for arrivals by raising their budget.

Levy wants to raise around £42.7million in transfer fees through Lo Celso’s sale, but Unai Emery’s side are adamant that they will not pay that amount. There is no buy option in the loan agreement, which has promoted the club chief to take this stance. He is hoping to see a bidding war unravel after this season, as it will be difficult to raise that sum despite the midfielder’s recent form.

Can Spurs earn such a fee for Lo Celso?

Lo Celso has been terrific for the La Liga side since joining them in the winter transfer window. He has also performed quite well in the Champions League as well helping them to reach the semi-finals and even giving Liverpool a scare at one point.

So it is understandable why Levy is looking to use the Argentine midfielder to raise a big sum for our summer transfer plans. However, there will be other obstacles, as Lo Celso himself has expressed that he is delighted with his life at Estadio de la Ceramica. That could be problematic after the Spanish club conveyed that they would not meet the valuation.

One could argue that the North London side should look to use the 26-year-old from the next season onwards. However, according to the Spanish source Estadio Deportivo (h/t The Express), he is not in Conte’s plans as the boss considers the midfielder to be not fit enough to cope with Premier League’s physicality and intensity.

If that is believed to be true, then we must back the Tottenham coach’s assessment and try and part ways with the Spurs loanee. His excellent performances so far could give us some leeway to force the issue and earn a fee in and around the current asking price.

For that to happen, though, a bidding war must take place this summer which is always as uncertain as of now. Then again, we remain hopeful that the club can raise a solid sum which could be used to bolster our other areas in the squad.

The club are looking to build a strong project under the Italian manager, so we must ensure that he has all the right tools to bring success to N17. That means backing him by raising our transfer budget, which we hope to see happen moving forward.
