‘Get it done’ – Manager tells club to sign 27-year-old with 38 goals and 39 assists

According to Sky Sports journalist Lyall Thomas, Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has requested his club to go and sign Tottenham midfielder Giovani Lo Celso.

The midfielder, who has had difficulty becoming a regular for Tottenham since arriving, has forced his way into the team by taking advantage of James Maddison’s injury.

The 27-year-old scored goals against Manchester City and Aston Villa back-to-back in the last two games, demonstrating his remarkable play.

Lo Celso was a target for Barcelona during the summer transfer window, as manager Xavi saw him as a potential replacement for Sergio Busquets.

A move did not materialise at that time but now as per recent reports they have renewed their efforts to sign him, especially following an injury setback to their rising star Gavi.

And as per the Thomas, Xavi is ‘determined to sign’ the midfielder who has 38 goals and 39 assists in his career. He has ‘requested the club’ to get the deal done for him in the upcoming transfer window.


The player’s current contract expires after 18 months. In addition to having injured players like Bentancur and Maddison, Spurs will be missing Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma for a few weeks in January.

Levy and company may be looking to cash in on him in an attempt to squeeze the most financial value out of him, even if Ange may be determined to keep him until the conclusion of the season.

However, until they recruit one or more midfielders in the January transfer window, selling Lo Celso would only make sense.
