Real Betis remain open to signing Tottenham star Giovani Lo Celso
Spanish publication Estadio Deportivo, Spanish side Real Betis remain open to signing Tottenham Hotspur star Giovani Lo Celso in January.
In the past week and a half, talks have been prevalent about Betis’ renewed interest in Lo Celso. The possibility of the talented midfielder making a comeback to the club where he once flourished has become a captivating narrative.
However, the ever-reliable Fabrizio Romano recently offered a different perspective, revealing that Tottenham Hotspur have not yet reached a verdict on Lo Celso’s future. Additionally, Ange Postecoglou, the gaffer at the helm of Spurs, expressed a keen desire to retain the services of the gifted Argentine during the summer transfer window.
Delving deeper into the intricacies of Betis’ pursuit of Lo Celso, Estadio Deportivo unveiled a more comprehensive picture. It appears that the La Liga side had initiated contact with the player’s representatives in the preceding summer transfer window.
Giovani Lo Celso, who has a history with Betis, evidently viewed the prospect of reuniting with his former teammates. How much ever he performs here, the Argentinian will always be behind James Maddison in the pecking order.
However, the situation took an interesting twist when Postecoglou, the Australian tactician in charge of Tottenham, made his intentions clear to the club hierarchy. He vociferously communicated his desire to keep the 27-year-old midfielder within the ranks at Tottenham Hotspur.
Betis, known for their attractive brand of football and passionate supporters, seem unwavering in their pursuit of Lo Celso. While it is not reported that Betis is actively pushing for Lo Celso’s acquisition at the moment, there is interest.
One factor that adds intrigue to the situation is the dwindling length of Lo Celso’s contract. By January, he will have a mere 18 months left (Transfermarkt) on his current deal with Tottenham. This contractual situation could potentially sway the club’s decision-makers to consider offers for the midfielder.
