Giovani Lo Celso is expected to return to Tottenham Hotspur in the first instance.
Tottenham fan community ‘Spurs Web’ reported on the 9th (KST), “Recently, Matt Law of the British ‘Telegraph’ revealed that Ross Celso does not want to return to Tottenham. We shared the news, but a source close to the player has since said: ‘There is no problem with Lo Celso returning. He will be happy to come back,” the report said.
Lo Celso joined Tottenham on loan from Real Betis in the summer of 2019. He completed a permanent move six months later and was touted as a player who could inject creativity into Spurs’ midfield. In total, Tottenham spent €48 million to sign Lo Celso. However, his place in the squad was limited after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked.
He made just 18 English Premier League (EPL) appearances (11 starts, seven substitute) under Jose Mourinho in the 2020-21 season. Things didn’t improve under Nuno Espirito Santo and then Antonio Conte.토토사이트
As a result, Lo Celso was sent out on loan to Villarreal during the 2021-22 season. He had a positive second half of the season, playing 16 Spanish La Liga games (11 starts, 5 substitutions) and six UEFA Champions League games (UCL). Despite returning from a successful loan spell, there was still no place for him at Tottenham.
Notably, he was left out of the squad for Conte’s pre-season tour of South Korea. As a result, Lo Celso was once again sent out on loan to Villarreal. Until the end of the season. Lo Celso made 22 La Liga appearances (14 starts, 8 substitutions), scoring two goals and providing three assists. He was out for around 50 days during the season.
Now it’s time to start thinking about his future. Firstly, Tottenham have changed their manager. Conte, who played two central midfielders in favour of a three-man defence, left the club and was replaced by Enze Postecoglou, who prefers a four-man defence. In Postecoglou’s 4-2-3-1 formation, Lo Celso will be given plenty of opportunities.
