Given that Spurs have only signed two players so far this summer, it seems essential for them to splash the cash at some point today in order to boost their squad up to a certain level.
And given this news from both the Guardian and Romano, it definitely looks like Pochettino’s side are going to get their chequebook out today, as they look to add their options in the middle of the park in the form of Lo Celso.
Lo Celso was very impressive for Betis last year, thus it’s easy to see why Spurs are willing to fork out £55M for him this summer.
The Argentine bagged 22 combined goals and assists in all competitions last year, as he helped the Spanish outfit reach the knockout rounds of the Europa League and the latter stages of the Copa Del Rey.
Lo Celso is an excellent goalscoring midfielder, and Spurs fans should be over the moon with this news as their side look to finalise a deal for one of La Liga’s most talented stars.
