Keeping tabs Tottenham transfer news: Spurs 'monitoring' Argentina international
Aliyu|March. 10, 2019
Tottenham are monitoring Paris Saint-Germain outcast Giovani Lo Celso, reports claim.
The Argentina international, who has scored 12 goals on loan at Real Betis this season, is also being tracked by Real Madrid.
Tottenham are believed to view Lo Celso as a potential replacement for Christian Eriksen, who has been linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid this summer.
Marca say Betis have decided to take up an option to sign Lo Celso on a permanent deal for £21.5million in the summer.
And the La Liga club could sell the 22-year-old for a huge profit in the same transfer window.
Lo Celso starred for Betis in their Europa League run earlier this season, scoring five goals in seven appearances as they crashed out to Rennes in the round of 32.
The midfielder joined PSG for £8.5million from Argentine club Rosario Central in 2016, but has made just 19 league starts for the French champions.
He is behind Marco Verratti, Julian Draxler, Leandro Paredes and Angel di Maria in the midfield pecking order at the Parc des Princes.
