Tottenham should try and keep Eriksen, sign Van de Beek and forget about Lo Celso

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino arrives for the UEFA Champions League Final between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on June 1, 2019 in Madrid, Spain.

Tottenham Hotspur have already been busy in the transfer market this summer.

Christmas has come early for Tottenham fans.

After not signing a player fro 18 months, Spurs finally made their move, signing Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon and Jack Clarke from Leeds United on the same day.

Tottenham's business should be far from finished, however.

According to Sky Sports, Spurs are still interested in Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, although talks have apparently stalled regarding the two clubs' respective valuations of the player.

 

The report claims that Betis are holding out for £70 million for the Argentine, and that really does seem like a lot of money.

Could there be a better solution for Tottenham?

Christian Eriksen has just one year remaining on his contract with Spurs, and he has been heavily linked with the exit door, with Football.London claiming that he could be available for £62 million. And Lo Celso would seemingly be his replacement.

The north London outfit should consider keeping hold of the Dane, however, and offer him a new contract, therefore meaning that they would not need to sign the Betis star.

Tottenham should then switch their focus to Ajax ace Donny van de Beek. The Dutchman could form a formidable central midfield partnership with Ndombele and Harry Winks.

The 22-year-old is available for around £45 million, according to the Daily Mail, and in today's day and age that would represent excellent value for money.

And he would surely prove to be better value than Lo Celso.

Van de Beek will very likely go on to become a future superstar in the game, so signing him for just £45 million, instead of Lo Celso for £70 million, seems to be a no-brainer for Tottenham.

And if they could keep Eriksen at the same time, this summer really could be an incredible one for Spurs.
