According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Betis are expecting Tottenham to sign Giovani Lo Celso on a permanent basis in January for around £27.3m.
Lo Celso joined Spurs on loan during the summer having scored 16 goals for Betis last term. The north Londoners reportedly paid a €16m (£13.7m) loan fee for the Argentina international with a permanent option of €40m (£34m) which becomes mandatory if Tottenham qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Should Tottenham sign Mario Mandzukic?
The 23-year-old has only started once in the league for Spurs this season – during the 1-1 draw with Sheffield United before the international break – but has looked lively for the club in the Champions League, scoring against Red Star Belgrade.
Tottenham could however acquire Lo Celso for a cut-price fee of €32m (£27.3m) if they signed him in January as opposed to the end of the season, say Mundo Deportivo, making an early deal for the South American an attractive proposition for Spurs’ famously frugal chairman, Daniel Levy.
Fans seemed stunned with delight at how cheap he could potentially be, and you can see some of their reactions down below..

If this is true I’ve seen enough of him to know that’s a bargain! Get it done.
