Loads of Spurs fans have been reacting to some positive transfer news, as Jose Mourinho confirmed the club want to exercise the option to keep Giovani Lo Celso.
After a rocky start riddled with injuries and very little playing time, Lo Celso has blossomed into one of Spurs’ finest players over the last few weeks. His performance against Norwich on Wednesday had fans hailing him as ‘the new David Silva’, while he was impressive against Southampton on Saturday, completing four tackles and four dribbles.
And it seems Mourinho is a big fan of the Argentine’s recent displays too, as Alasdair Gold reported the manager’s comments after the draw at St. Mary’s: “The boy is earning the decision. He’s making an easy decision for the club to execute the option. Incredible evolution. By himself he made the decision the club is going to execute the option.”
The option to make Lo Celso’s loan move permanent is thought to be worth €32m (£27m), and loads of fans have been reacting to Mourinho’s comment. Most of the supporters seem thrilled with the news, as one fan said he is already the club’s best player while another said he looks better and better with each passing game.
