Tottenham Hotspur have been tracking the midfielder all summer long.
According to a report from Seville based newspaper Mucho Deporte, Tottenham have submitted a new bid for Real Betis midfielder, this time though to be worth €68 million (£61 million).
Spurs have been tracking the Argentine all summer, but Sky Sports reported earlier this week that talks between the north London outfit and Betis had broken down.
It seems as though Tottenham are close to making a breakthrough now, however.
Mucho Deporte claims that Spurs have submitted a new £61 million bid through Israeli super agent Pini Zahavi, who is acting as an intermediary.
The Spanish media outlet go on to say that Betis are holding out for closer to £67 million, however.
If some common ground can be found between the two clubs regarding the transfer fee, Lo Celso would be a superb addition to Mauricio Pochettino’s side, and he would surely strike up a wonderful partnership with Tanguy Ndombele at the heart of Tottenham’s midfield.
If Betis refuse to drop their asking price, however, it will be interesting to see whether Daniel Levy caves in, and pays the Spanish club what they want for the Argentina international.
The 23-year-old is so talented that £67 million would actually represent excellent value for money, and Tottenham must do all they can to make the deal happen before next month’s deadline.
