Sources: Tottenham ready to accept £15m Giovani Lo Celso offer

Tottenham are ready to listen to offers for midfielder Giovani Lo Celso in the January transfer window, sources have told Football Insider.

The 27-year-old has been a fringe figure this season under Ange Postecogolou.

Spurs are willing to let the midfield ace depart the club in the mid-season window, potentially ending an almost-four-year association with the club.

It is believed the Lilywhites would accept an offer of around £15-20million for the outcast.

Lo Celso has played just 69 minutes of football in the 2023-24 campaign – and earned his only start as Tottenham were eliminated from the League Cup on penalties by Fulham in August.

James Maddison’s summer arrival has effectively consigned the Argentina international to a backup role in north London.

And Tottenham are among the only top-half Premier League sides to be playing just once a week – meaning rotation opportunities are few and far between.

Lo Celso spent last season on loan at Villarreal, notching two goals and three assists in 29 outings across all competitions.

His contract at Spurs, which nets him a reported £70,000-a-week, runs until June 2025.

The ex-Paris Saint-Germain ace has managed eight goals and six assists in 87 games for Tottenham.

He arrived permanently for a reported fee of £42.3million from Real Betis in 2020 after an initial loan spell at the club.

Tottenham sit top of the Premier League after 10 games and are still unbeaten in the top flight.

Postecoglou’s side are next in action against Chelsea next week (6 November).
