OFFICIAL: Tottenham acts at lightning speed after transfer from Eriksen and records Lo Celso


Tottenham Hotspur has finalized Giovani Lo Celso. The Premier League top club highlights the purchase option in the lease contract of the Argentinian attacking midfielder. The announcement follows shortly after Christian Eriksen’s departure for Internazionale.

Lo Celso came from Real Betis on a rental basis in August. After he wasn’t able to play much under Mauricio Pochettino, he turned out to be the basic player under his successor Mourinho. The Portuguese manager already indicated that Spurs wanted to raise the option. “I think he deserves that decision,” said Mourinho. “He makes it an easy decision for the club to highlight the option in the lease. He has developed tremendously since I was a trainer here.”
The 23-year-old Argentinian has now signed his contract with Spurs until mid 2025. Allegedly Real Betis receives sixty million euros. Lo Celso played fourteen times in the Premier League this season, four of which as a base player. He did not score yet. The attacking midfielder had been seen for some time as the intended successor to Eriksen, who has since left for Internazionale.
