‘55m deal imminent’ – Talks on the “exchange” of Lo Celso for Spurs main CB target have already taken place


Tottenham Hotspur are strengthening their center of defense. Finding a left central defender is now a priority for Antonio Conte’s team. The question of swap deal for Pau Torres and Lo Celso is quite relevant.

According to The Express journalist Ryan Taylor, there have already been talks on the matter, and a summer swap would be beneficial to both Villarreal and Tottenham.

Villarreal want Lo Celso on a permanent basis, and the way he has proven himself as a star under Unai Emery reinforces the importance of this player. For Tottenham, the midfield is a fairly reinforced line, so it’s possible that the negotiations between the two clubs could proceed in the coming days.

Recall that Pau Torres already turned down Spurs once, back then under Nuno Espírito Santo. The reason was that the player wanted to play in the Champions League for his home club.

Now, having played in the Champions League and having realized his dream, Pau Torres is open to new opportunities. Last season, Tottenham finished 4th, made it to the Champions League, and therefore, isn’t now the best time for a player’s decision? We’ll see afterwards.
