Real Betis are set to make a move for Giovanni Lo Celso in the January transfer window.
“Betis are still interested in Rosselso and will approach him once again in the January transfer window,” English outlet Team Talk quoted Spanish outlet As as saying.
Lo Celso is an Argentine midfielder. His main position is attacking midfielder, but his versatility on both sides of the ball allows him to play in a variety of roles, from frontline striker to defensive midfielder. The South American has good footwork, basic passing skills and good vision, which makes him stand out as a playmaker.
He broke into the European scene in 2016. French giants Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) recognized Lo Celso’s abilities and signed him from Argentina. Even with a superstar-studded PSG squad, Lo Celso was given his fair share of opportunities. In 48 games in 2017-18, including cup competitions, he scored six goals and provided seven assists, logging well over 2,000 minutes.
However, he was unable to establish himself as a regular starter. He lost his place in the 2018-19 season and went on loan to Betis in La Liga. He quickly established himself as a regular starter and led the team with 16 goals and six assists in 45 games, including cup competitions.
This performance led to a move to Tottenham Hotspur. Looking for a replacement for Christian Eriksen, Spurs identified Lo Celso as the man for the job, and he was off to a new challenge in the Premier League (PL). But life in England wasn’t easy. Lo Celso struggled to settle in and found himself playing less and less as the seasons went on. By the 2021-22 season, he was completely on the fringes of the squad and was sent out on loan to Villarreal in the second half of the season. After a season and a half of modest results – three goals and four assists in 51 games – Lo Celso returned to Tottenham ahead of this season 온라인바카라.
There was room for a rebound. New manager Enze Postecoglou considered utilizing Lo Celso. However, with the arrival of James Maddison, Lo Celso was completely pushed out of the starting lineup. Two games this season, including a cup tie. He has only played 61 minutes.
This has led to transfer speculation. Betis, who have good memories of Lo Celso, approached him. In fact, Betis were also interested in signing him last summer. Although the deal didn”t go through, the interest is still there and they”ll try to sign him again in the winter transfer window.
