Giovani Lo Celso joined Tottenham in the 2019 summer window from Real Bettis for €55 million when Mauricio Pochettino was still the manager of the club but has struggled to stay consistent under four managers.
This season, making nine appearances for the club, starting two games, Lo Celso was sent out on loan to Villarreal in the final days of the January transfer window.
During his time back in La Liga, Lo Celso helped guide the Yellow Submarine to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League, including winning MOTM in the second leg against Bayern Munich.
In his 22 appearances in all competitions for the Spanish club, Lo Celso only scored once and provide one assist during his loan spell.
Although, his loan spell has now ended, but could return to Estadio de la Ceramica according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
Well, nothing has yet been agreed between the two clubs despite Villarreal’s interest and Spurs setting a price tag.
Lo Celso Tottenham’s contract runs until 2025.
