According to AS, Tottenham Hotspur are in talks with Real Betis over a potential swoop for Giovani Lo Celso in this summer’s transfer window.
Lo Celso has just come off the back of an impressive season with Betis – scoring 16 times in all competitions.
The Argentina international has actually only just completed a permanent move to the Spanish outfit, having previously been on loan from Paris Saint-Germain.
Betis could now sell him on for a huge profit, with AS claiming that Spurs are prepared to pay more than £50m to land the South American.
It would be fair to say that there has been a mixed reaction from the Tottenham supporters, though.
Indeed, whilst there are those who want to see Lo Celso arrive at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium this summer, others are not convinced by the deal.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Premier League club’s fans can be seen below:

I like this player

I love this – a top top quality player, young, Argentinian – it all makes sense.
Quite a hefty fee, I reckon we could get that down to £40m – also worth noting that he is a very different player to Eriksen and wouldn’t be his replacement – more a Ndombele mould

A very good player, would be happy if we bought him to replace Eriksen should he go. Technically gifted, intelligent, threads balls and can score a bundle. Far too good for betis. Problem is he just signed for Betis from psg after a successful year loan
