Following some transfer news this week, Tottenham Hotspur boss Ange Postecoglou might soon be forced to part ways with a Spurs player he greatly admires. Postecoglou admires him a lot.
The Premier League season has gotten off to an absolutely fantastic start for the residents of north London.
The Postecoglou era has started off very well, with the Australian manager having yet to suffer a loss in the club’s top division. The revival of an attractive, attack-minded style of play has been established by Spurs’ new head coach following Antonio Conte’s regretful final campaign in charge.
The Lilywhites have four victories out of a possible five in the league, have scored 13 goals, and are one of the top three offensive clubs in the division, trailing only Brighton and Manchester City.
Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr, two Spurs players who under Conte were never given a chance, are now thriving as members of a Postecoglou team with a fresh look.
Giovani Lo Celso and Bryan Gil, two attacking midfielders who Conte also didn’t like, might soon join the team.
Since the middle of August, Tottenham has recorded impressive victories over teams like Bournemouth, Manchester United, Burnley, and Sheffield United, with the latter result severely putting their spirit to the test.
On Saturday, the Blades unexpectedly seized the lead against the flow of the game before two incredibly late goals from Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski gave Spurs a 2-1 victory.
Who could leave Spurs?
A few team members may be let go before January since Postecoglou seems to have found a winning formula at N17 and his best Tottenham side is taking shape.
During Postecoglou’s tenure, numerous players have already departed the team, including former superstar striker Harry Kane, Sergio Reguilon, Joe Rodon, Djed Spence, Harry Winks, Alfie Devine, Troy Parrott, Dane Scarlett, Davinson Sanchez, and Tanguy Ndombele.
With news of Lo Celso’s future emerging, it might only be a matter of time before another joins them in leaving the Spurs.
The Argentine was mentioned in connection with a move during the summer window, and his departure is definitely anticipated this winter. Postecoglou recently revealed to the media that he truly enjoys Lo Celso a lot.
The Tottenham manager declared, “I’m really happy with Gio.” He has performed admirably in training. You can tell he’s a good player, and I believe our style of play is ideal for him. In terms of the football we want to play, I believe he is enjoying himself as much as working with me.
Despite this assertion, a Spanish publication now asserts that Lo Celso “made clear his desire” to depart Tottenham during the winter transfer window. The athlete and his agents appear to be already planning a transfer. For his part, Lo Celso is focused on one place in particular: Real Betis.
The 27-year-old reportedly thinks joining his previous team in Spain will provide him many more opportunities.
How good is Giovani Lo Celso?
Lo Celso might still be able to help Tottenham, and if the rumour is accurate, we think he might be making a choice in a hurry. While on loan from Argentina to Villarreal in 2022, goalie Geronimo Rulli described the Argentine as one of the “top players in the world” in an interview with Super Deporte.
As a team, he “gives us a plus,” according to Rulli.”He aids in our development, and I learn nothing by claiming that he is a top player in the world. I hope he does well since I am quite familiar with him as a player and a person.
