Tottenham slap €15m price tag on 27-year-old midfielder with Barcelona keen

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovani Lo Celso is a target for Barcelona ahead of the January transfer window


Barcelona may still explore signing Giovani Lo Celso from Tottenham Hotspur in the forthcoming January transfer window, according to Spanish outlet SPORT, even though the summer transfer window is over.

Although it has been said that the Argentine did not leave Tottenham during the summer, there is rising hope for a transfer during the January transfer window. Spurs, though, want €15 million for his transfer.

This curiosity is a result of Barcelona manager Xavi’s perception of the former Villarreal midfielder as the perfect complement to his tactical ideas.

Lo Celso is yet to be given a starting spot in a Premier League game this season, despite impressing his manager, Ange Postecoglou, throughout the preseason.

The South American’s place in the starting lineup has changed as a result of his outstanding performances for the Lilywhites this year. The former Leicester City player has established himself rapidly, participating in seven games this season with two goals and four assists.

Due to his limited playing time, rumors concerning his future and the potential for a return to La Liga have emerged.

The Blaugrana are also in the running, although Real Betis are currently emerging as a formidable contender. Due to injuries that have kept him out of Tottenham’s last three games, the midfielder has only played 63 minutes of total field time thus far this season.

Given these circumstances, the 27-year-old would be prudent to think about his future outside of North London.

The most likely destination for the offensive midfielder if he decides to go seems to be La Liga, with Barcelona in the lead. To sign him, they would need to invest a fair amount of money.

Xavi’s side faced issues while registering Atletico Madrid loanee Joao Felix on the deadline day this summer. Funding any move in January might not be easy, considering the restrictions posed by the financial fair play regulations
