Tottenham have agreed a four-year deal worth £70k-per-week for Giovani Lo Celso, but the Londoners are yet to agree a fee with Real Betis. Unsurprisingly, Daniel Levy is trying to negotiate a lower price for the 23-year-old but Betis aren’t budging on their valuation.

ABC Sevilla (h/t Sport Witness) say Betis are holding out for £68m while Diario de Sevilla report that the highest bid Spurs have made is £45.6m. The two sides are some distance away from agreeing a fee and there’s little over a week remaining of the summer transfer window.

Lo Celso’s arrival may no longer require Christian Eriksen’s sale either. The 27-year-old has been linked with a move away from Tottenham all summer after admitting his desire for a new challenge, but no club have made a serious approach. Real Madrid were named as suitors, but they appear more keen on Paul Pogba.

Levy may not have had a problem signing Lo Celso for more money if Eriksen’s sale covered the price, but now the Tottenham owner is obliged to get the best possible deal. It’s not unlike Levy to wait until the final stages of a transfer window, but supporters won’t be happy if Spurs can’t get Lo Celso over the line after so much anticipation and build up.

  • I have always been a supporter of Levy, yet now even I am asking questions, why why why has he not spent more on players to help Poch to reach the summit. If there is no money available at least have the guts to say so, and not keep the manager and fans living in hope and utter frustration. At the present all he is doing is pulling the club apart which can only prove to be a nightmare and wreck everything that has gone on so far. You are not God Levy, be honest act like a genuine keeper of our great club tell the fans the truth of whats going on.

  • Levy sort this out
    You cannot afford to loose him ,
    You have lost too many players already to other clubs
    Poch if you want him! Put pressure on Levy before it’s too late!!

    • What is all this sh t about, Daniel dos everything for the club. Everybody who knows Daniel knows that he loves negotiating deals, stop al the fuss, and again all this crab about MoPo not knowing anything about the transfers is due to the fact that MoPo has to stop talking to the press because he needs to talk with a translator, he’s English is very bad. He needs to take the blame for things he f’t up like losing the cl, and yhe fact that he was leaving us if we would have won it. Everytime something bad come’s in the media its afther he gave a statement to the press. Now leave Levy allone and support our mighty Spurs like you should. COYS
