Facing another trophyless season, Mauricio Pochettino has become well aware his team can’t cope with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, and Liverpool without matching their investments
Therefore, the Spurs could be active in the summer transfer session after staying put in both of the previous ones.
The Premier League outfit has set sights on Paris Saint-Germain’s Giovani Lo Celso, who is currently on loan at Real Betis, according to Daily Mail.
Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester City have already expressed their interest in the attacking midfielder, but Los Verdiblancos have the opportunity to grab him in the summer for £21.5million.
Spurs plotting summer move for 12-goal star, La Liga ace valued at £21.5m https://t.co/XKQJVEzNRo— Nicholas L. Locke (@mrnicholaslocke) March 10, 2019
The 21-year-old has been outstanding in La Liga this campaign, gobbling five goals and three assists in 22 La Liga outings.
However, given the fierce competition at PSG, the talented youngster will have a hard time breaking into Thomas Tuchel’s starting eleven.
Hence, the Argentina international may have to find new accommodation at the end of the season, and Tottenham are more than glad to take him away from Paris.
Lo Celso perfectly fits in Pochettino’s profile, considering the 47-year-old often focuses on snapping rising stars rather than wasting high-figures on experienced players.
