News from Tottenham: Get the most recent news on Tottenham, including details about Giovani Lo Celso, Johan Lange, and Micky van de Ven.
Lo Celso is expected to go for £15 million.
When the transfer window reopens, Tottenham is open to bids for Giovani Lo Celso, an Argentina midfielder, and may accept up to £15 million in exchange for his services. Football Insider reports indicate that, as rumors over his future with the Premier League’s top team intensify, this is the case.
This season, Lo Celso has played a supporting role for Angel Postecoglou. In his three club appearances in all competitions, he has only played 69 minutes.
After a brief loan period, the former PSG and Real Betis player originally signed with Tottenham for €32 million (£27.8 million) in 2020. He spent the previous season and the one before that on loan at Villarreal. The midfield player, though, appears to be headed for a permanent move as Football Insider has suggested he could leave in January.
Lange to make key scouting appointment
Spurs are about to make their first significant behind-the-scenes hire following the arrival of Johan Lange as the team’s new technical director.
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.
