News from Tottenham: Get the most recent news on Tottenham, including details about Giovani Lo Celso, Johan Lange, and Micky van de Ven.
The estimated sale price of Lo Celso is £15 million.
At the end of the transfer window, Tottenham will entertain bids for Argentine midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, for whom the club is willing to pay up to £15 million. This is the case, according to reports from Football Insider, as rumors about his future with the premier league’s best team spread.
In a supporting role this season, Lo Celso has helped Angel Postecoglou. Out of three club appearances in all competitions, he has only received 69 minutes of playing time.
The former PSG and Real Betis player initially signed with Tottenham in 2020 for €32 million (£27.8 million) after a brief loan period. He was on loan at Villarreal for the entirety of the previous season and the season prior. But, given that Football Insider has indicated the midfield player may depart in January, it looks like he will be making a permanent move.
Important scouting appointment for Lange
With the appointment of Johan Lange as the team’s new technical director, Spurs are set to make their first big behind-the-scenes addition.
Lange, 43, moved from Aston Villa to north London last month, and he has now formally assumed his role. He will oversee all hiring decisions made at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Rob Mackenzie, the new top scout for Tottenham, has reportedly made the decision to follow Lange from Villa, according to reports from Daily Telegraph writer Matt Law on social media. Lange knows Mackenzie from their days together at Villa Park.
Ferdinand wowed by Van de Ven impact
Rio Ferdinand acknowledges that after a high-profile transfer, Tottenham defender Micky van de Ven’s jaw-dropping Premier League debut this season has left him speechless.
This summer, Tottenham paid a cool £43 million to acquire Van de Ven from Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga, and based just on the player’s early performances, it looks like a wise investment. The 22-year-old Dutch talent has started every minute of play and has been a constant for the league leaders.
Van van Ven has logged 900 minutes this season, started 10 games for Tottenham, and contributed to his team’s four clean sheets. As Postecoglou leads Tottenham to greater heights, the left-sider and Cristian Romero have formed an exceptional center-back connection.
