Giovani Lo Celso's terrific performances for Real Betis this season have seen Tottenham Hotspur quoted a high price.

SkySports report the Spanish side want £70 million for the attacking midfielder.

Lo Celso has had the opportunity to justify his price tag at the Copa America. It hasn't really happened so far.

 

Argentina won their first game of the group stage yesterday to set up a quarter-final against Venezuela.

It was despite Lo Celso rather than in thanks to him.

The Betis ace was substituted after just 54 minutes for Marcos Acuna after failing to make an impact.

Both of Lo Celso's shots missed the target and he was booked before he was substituted with just 35 touches.

All of this is quite positive for Tottenham, as it helps chairman Daniel Levy's case to strike a good deal for the Argentine.

Betis' price is excessive despite his performances in Spain. 

His disappointing performance for Argentina against Qatar backs this up.
