He’s finally saying goodbye to Tottenham Hotspur.
“Tottenham have decided to sell Giovanni Lo Celso, 27, in the winter transfer window,” the English outlet TeamTalk reported on Thursday.
Lo Celso joined Tottenham Hotspur from Real Betis in 2019. After a successful loan spell, he completed a full transfer and looked set for a bright future.
That was it. Lo Celso has been plagued by injuries, both major and minor, and hasn’t been able to maintain his form. He struggled in the 20/21 season, making just 18 league appearances.
Eventually, he was forced to leave on loan to Villarreal, just as he was kicked out last year. Expectations weren’t high for his performance at Tottenham, as he was on a downward spiral due to injuries and poor form.
His loan spell at Villarreal was a turning point in his career. Lo Celso gradually increased his playing time at Villarreal and managed to regain his form, scoring two goals and providing three assists in 29 games across all competitions.
In contrast to his performance last season, life at Tottenham was unhappy. Lo Celso made just three appearances in all competitions this season. He started only one game, the Carabao Cup.
He hasn’t been able to gain the upper hand in the competition for a starting spot with James Maddison. Maddison has been on fire this season with three goals and five assists, leaving no room for Lo Celso to break through.
Parting ways with Tottenham is likely. According to the report, Tottenham are planning to offload Lo Celso in the winter transfer window for a relatively low fee of €15 million. 아톰카지노 도메인
Barcelona has emerged as a possible destination. “Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez is delighted to have Lo Celso on the market at such a low price,” according to TeamTalk.
“He feels that the €15 million transfer fee is a bargain considering his talent. We will try to get him in the winter transfer window.”
The chances of a transfer happening are high. Lo Celso reportedly wants to leave Tottenham in the winter transfer window to get his career back on track.
