Tottenham Hotspur are still reportedly trying to close a deal for Giovani Lo Celso.
Tottenham Hotspur have had little success so far closing a deal for Giovani Lo Celso, who they have been chasing all summer.
Marca report Real Betis will allow Lo Celso to leave if they receive an offer of £68 million.
Fortunately Real Betis have another player who could fit the bill for Tottenham, Junior Firpo.
Barcelona have tried and failed so far to sign Firpo. The Mail report their opening offer of £21 million is not enough for Betis' asking price of £25 million.
Like Sessegnon, Firpo is young, talented, and has ability to play at both left-back, and on the wing.
Tottenham can't afford to wait too long or Barcelona will likely find a resolution. But it would make sense for Spurs to bite the bullet and pay up for both.
A double deal of £100 million, or £103 million to be precise, would secure Firpo and Lo Celso.
It would change Tottenham's team dramatically.
Spurs could still recoup much of this fee by selling Christian Eriksen, who has only a year left on his contract.
It's the indecisiveness and quibbling over asking prices which is holding Tottenham back.
At some point Spurs should simply pay up and take the options available, before it's too late.
