Tottenham are closing in on a deal to sign Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis, according to reports
Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on a deal to sign Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Evening Standard is reporting that the Lilywhites are keen to bring the 23-year-old attacking midfielder to north London this summer as they aim to bolster their squad ahead of the new campaign.
The same story says that the Argentina international himself is keen to move to Spurs and play Champions League football with the Lilywhites next season.
However, the article suggests that Spurs will have to spend big if they want to sign Lo Celso this summer, with Real Betis reportedly demanding a transfer fee of £67m.
The story also says that Real Betis are willing to let Lo Celso leave this summer as they are closing in on a deal to sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon.
Tottenham are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they aim to win their first piece of major silverware under Mauricio Pochettino.
Spurs finished fourth and reached the Champions League final last season, but ended up losing 2-0 to Liverpool FC.
