Giovani Lo Celso to La Liga? Atletico Madrid eye move for unhappy Spurs midfielder

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovani Lo Celso has been linked with a move away from North London, with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid eyeing a possible move for the Argentine Copa America-winning midfielder, per Fichajes.net.

In the summer of 2019, the Lilywhites signed the former PSG midfielder from Real Betis for a club-record-equaling fee of €60 million (£55.3 million). The 27-year-old arrived at Spurs with high expectations; however, he has been unable to replicate his performances with Los Verdiblancos in English football.

Many presumed he would rejuvenate his career at White Hart Lane under the tutelage of Ange Postecoglou, although Lo Celso has found minutes difficult to come by after aggregating only 19 appearances in all competitions in the ongoing campaign, registering two goals and two assists.

To put the 27-year-old’s frustrations at Tottenham into context, a recent report by Estadio Deportivo insists that he is ‘unhappy’ with a lack of minutes under his belt this season, and he has already made his mind to seek fresh pastures this summer.

Despite links to Real Betis, Atletico Madrid have stepped forward to offer Argentinian midfield maestro Giovani Lo Celso a return to La Liga when the transfer window opens in June.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone, a long-time admirer of Argentinian midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, has reportedly requested his employers sign him at all costs. Believing Lo Celso would be a perfect fit for his system, Simeone has pushed the club to make a €20 million (£17 million) offer for his countryman.
