Tottenham midfielder Giovani Lo Celso is currently in Spain, where the details of his transfer to Villarreal are being discussed. The loan spell impressed the Spanish team and they are ready to go all the way for the player.
The Argentine midfielder has not found a place in Tottenham’s ambitious plans and the Spanish team intends to sign him on a permanent basis. Negotiations have become complicated over compensation fee for the player, as Tottenham were clearly set on a certain price, which Villarreal were unable to meet.
According to Argentine broadcaster TyC Sports, Lo Celso is already in Spain, and in the coming hours there will be a decisive phase of transfer negotiations. If the deal does not work out, Italian Fiorentina will enter the fray, which is another contender for the services of the Argentine.
However, the priority for the midfielder is Villarreal.
