According to an exclusive report from Football Insider, Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho is prepared to build the team around January signing Giovani Lo Celso due to his ingenuity in midfield – prompting some Lilywhites to discuss the ‘machine‘ on Twitter.
Lo Celso, who signed for us on a permanent deal worth £27.2 million, has since gone on to impress the coaching staff and supporters alike with his performances recently.
The Argentine put on a Man of the Match display as Spurs secured their first victory since lockdown last week, with goals from Tomas Soucek (OG) and Harry Kane keeping our hopes of European football alive.
Can Lo Celso become a superstar at Tottenham?
Now valued at £36 million by Transfermarkt, the 24-year-old’s price tag could only go up if he keeps performing on such a consistent basis – with some fans now acknowledging that fact on social media.
Wondering if he can ‘take Dele’s place‘, here’s how supporters drawn their own conclusions on the playmaker down below.
Been superb over the last dozen games in a team that hasn’t been playing that well. Shown he can play as a centre mid brilliantly but if Tanguy can work his way into the team I wonder whether GLC may take Dele’s place just behind Kane and we will then start to see more goals

Looks real class but hope Jose does not ruin him and have him defending deep in his own half !!

Hard to believe he’s only started 8 games for us. His potential is massive

Let’s hope he actually becomes a superstar at spurs though. That’s the issue

Needs to add goals and assists to his game now
