Tottenham Hotspur tell Napoli how much to pay for Giovani Lo Celso

According to CalcioMercato.it, Tottenham Hotspur have made their stance abundantly clear, demanding a fee of €20m to part ways with Giovani Lo Celso to Napoli.

At the forefront of these negotiations is Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis, who has found himself facing a formidable opponent in Tottenham’s shrewd chairman, Daniel Levy. The Tottenham chairman is not one to back from a fight.

Despite the difficulties faced by Napoli, hope still lingers in Naples that Tottenham might eventually soften their stance. However, the North London club has categorically ruled out any possibility of a loan deal, insisting on a permanent transfer for Lo Celso.

Napoli have been proactive in their pursuit of the Argentine talent. The Serie A champions have been in touch with Lo Celso’s entourage, understanding the player’s keen desire to make the move to the iconic Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

At €20m, the proposed fee for Lo Celso might appear relatively modest, considering the midfielder’s quality and the interest he has garnered from several top clubs. With two years remaining on his current contract, Lo Celso has become an integral part of Tottenham’s plans.

However, should Tottenham decide to cash in on Lo Celso, it is certain that they will seek to ignite a bidding war. The North London outfit would be keen to drive the price upwards, especially if new clubs come in.

For Tottenham fans, the prospect of losing Lo Celso will certainly be met with mixed emotions. The Argentine midfielder has won the hearts of the Spurs faithful with his flair, creativity, and tireless work ethic on the field.

Tottenham’s stance reflects their determination to secure the best possible deal for the club, while Napoli seek to bolster their squad with a player of Lo Celso’s calibre. It doesn’t make sense for us to keep loaning him out season after season.
