Giovani Lo Celso ‘Waiting’ for Contact From Spurs as Tottenham Advance With Deal for Dani Ceballos

Giovani Lo Celso is reportedly ‘waiting’ for contact from Tottenham over a move to the club, while negotiations have advanced between Spurs and Dani Ceballos. Both Lo Celso and Ceballos have been targeted by Tottenham, with Spurs recently putting Lo Celso’s move on hold after struggling to agree on a fee for the midfielder, while Ceballos could move to the London club in a loan deal, following his impressive showings at the under-21 Euros. In a flurry of news, all coming from Spanish sources, Lo Celso reportedly wants the move to Tottenham agreed before he finishes his post-Copa America holiday. Reported through AS (via Sport Witness), the Argentine is said to be ‘waiting’ for Tottenham to be in contact with Betis to help finalise the move, with the player hoping it comes before the end of his holiday.  Lo Celso has a release clause of £88m, with Real Betis reportedly holding out for a bid of at least £67m from Tottenham, partly because 20% of the transfer fee will go straight to Lo Celso’s ex-club PSG.  ​On Wednesday ​Sky Sports ​​reported​ how the move had been put on hold, with Ceballos then thought to be the club’s primary target. This could change however if Christian Eriksen were to leave the London club. Tottenham’s pursuit of Ceballos, reported through ​Estadio Deportivo, is said to be at an ‘advanced’ stage, with negotiations furthering. They state that Ceballos has been chased by Tottenham for a month, with a loan deal looking the most likely. After Sevilla pulled out of the race for the young Spaniard, Tottenham are in pole position to sign the midfielder.  With Ceballos initially thought to be a target for Spurs following the stalling of Lo Celso’s move, the possibility of both players arriving seems unlikely. However, if the reports are to be believed then Lo Celso seems keen on a move while Levy is pushing for the Ceballos deal. The two may both be playing in north London next year.
