Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou could soon be forced to part ways with a Spurs player he truly admires, following transfer news this week.Latest Spurs news
The North Londoners are having an absolutely sensational start to the Premier League season.
Postecoglou’sera has started very positively, with the Australian yet to suffer his first defeat in the top flight as the club’s manager.
After Antonio Conte’s dismal tenure as manager last season, Spurs’ new head coach has implemented a return to an entertaining, attacking style of play.
The Lily whites have four wins out of five possible in the league; scored 13 goals and were one of the three best attacking teams in the division, just behind Brighton and Man City.
Some Spurs players who never featured under Conte, such as Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr, are now thriving as part of the new Postecoglou team.
The attacking midfielders Giovani Lo Celso and Bryan Gil could also soon be added, who are also not among Conte’s favourites.
Tottenham have recorded impressive victories over the likes of Bournemouth, Man United, Burnley and Sheffield United since mid-August, with the latter result seriously testing their character.
The Blades took a surprising lead against the match before late goals from Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski gave Spurs a hard-fought 2-1 victory on Saturday.Who could leave Spurs?
Postecoglou seems to have found a winning formula in N17 and his best Tottenham is starting to take shape; meaning some members of the team could face the ax before January.
Former superstar strikers Harry Kane, Sergio Reguilon, Joe Rodon, Djed Spence, Harry Winks, Alfie Devine, Troy Parrott, Dane Scarlett, Davinson Sanchez and Tanguy Ndombele have already left the club during Postecoglou’s tenure.
It may only be a matter of time before another follows them to Spurs as an update on Lo Celso’s future emerges.
The Argentine was linked with a move in the summer window, and his departure is certainly expected this winter.
Postecoglou is actually a big fan of Lo Celso, as he recently admitted to the press.”I’m very happy with Gio,” said the Tottenham manager.
“He has been very good in training.
You can see that he is a quality player and I think the way we play suits him. “I enjoyed working with him and I think he is enjoying himself when it comes to the football we want to play.”
Despite this claim, a report from Spain now claims that Lo Celso has “clearly expressed his desire” to leave Tottenham in the winter window.
The player and his agents are already working on the transfer. Lo Celso, for his part, has a specific destination in mind: Real Betis.
The 27-year-old apparently believes he will have many more opportunities if he returns to Spain with his former club.
How good is Giovani Lo Celso?
Lo Celso could still do some work for Tottenham and we think he could make a hasty decision if the report is indeed true.
Goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli called him the ‘best player in the world’ when speaking to Super Deporte during the Argentine’s 2022 loan spell at Villarreal.
“He gives us something extra as a team,” Rulli said. “He helps us improve and I’m not discovering anything when I say he’s one of the best players in the world.
I know him well as a player and as a person and I hope he does very well.
