Tottenham’s Ugly Duck, imminent to Villarreal… Fiorentina offer is variable

[골닷컴] Reporter Hyungjoong Kim = Premier League Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovanni Lo Celso’s departure to Spain is imminent.

Lo Celso, who moved to Villarreal in La Liga late last season on loan, returned to Tottenham this summer but lost his place. Already this season, Tottenham manager Antonio Conte’s departure from the idea has become a known fact. He also missed the pre-season Korean tour.

While they were looking for a new team, Villarreal, who was with them last season, once again reached out. He joined last winter and played in 16 La Liga matches (11 starts), scoring one goal and one assist, and appeared in six matches in the UEFA Champions League during the same period. He rarely played at Tottenham due to frequent injuries, but he proved his competitiveness in La Liga with the Villarreal jersey.

On the 9th (Korean time), British media ‘HITC’ quoted European transfer market expert Fabricio Romano’s Twitter saying, “Villarreal wants to sign Lo Celso as soon as possible on full transfer terms.” The reason Villarreal is in a hurry is that Italian Serie A Fiorentina has entered the race for signing. In response, Villarreal is said to be negotiating with an offer of £100,000 a week (about 158 ​​million won).

Argentinian native Lo Celso moved to Tottenham from Real Betis in 2019 and has scored one goal and three assists in 55 appearances over three seasons. Tottenham had expected Lo Celso to play a variety of roles in midfield, but frequent injuries were a hindrance. His injuries also varied. He started with hips, thighs, hamstrings, knees, and shins, etc. As soon as he returned and started playing, he repeatedly injured himself.

In the end, Lo Celso and Tottenham’s three-year affair is expected to end this summer.
