Medical next for 23-year-old as Spurs edge closer to third signing

Spurs are reportedly edging closer to their third signing of the summer with only a month left before the new campaign begins.

Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to take the progress at the club even further next term after reaching the Champions League final last season.

Following the addition of Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke, who is out on loan at Leeds, Spurs are now nearing a deal to sign Giovani Lo Celso.

Based on a report by Informa Betis, the Real Betis midfielder will have a medical at Tottenham this week before completing a move to north London.

The report claims Lo Celso is indeed Spurs’ preferred choice to replace Christian Eriksen, who is yet to commit his future to the club.

Of course, the Argentine was the first player whom Tottenham tried to sign this summer as the club made a £53m bid for him, only days before the Champions League final (BBC).

After weeks of speculation, it looks as though the two clubs are reaching some sort of agreement over the deal at last.
