Tottenham gets tough for Villarreal

Giovani Lo Celso is the priority objective from Villarreal for this summer but his hiring may be more expensive than expected. When Tottenham loaned the Argentine soccer player last winter market, they did so without including any purchase option in the operation, contrary to what they had done the previous season with Juan Foyth, also from the London team. In the case of the defender, the Castellón club disbursed the 15 million euros that had been set as a price. Staying in property with the midfielder, however, will require a greater economic effort.

According to the newspaper on Tuesday The Times, Tottenham have not accepted the latest proposal received by Villarreal, which was around 18.5 million euros fixed plus about 5.7 in variables. In total, an offer above 24 million euros that is not to the liking of the entity chaired by Daniel Levy. The English club intends to obtain a larger amount for getting rid of the player despite the fact that it does not enter into Antonio Conte’s plans.

It must be taken into account that the arrival of the Argentine soccer player in London required an investment of close to 50 million euros at the time. In the summer of 2019, Tottenham paid Real Betis 16 million euros for the transfer of the footballer and a year later they paid another 32 million to keep him as their property. With Villarreal’s offer he would recover half of said investment but for the moment he has not accepted the proposal.

Another point to solve in the hiring of Lo Celso by the Castellón club is the player’s salary, one of the highest in the English club. Ahead of the Argentine are only Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Tonguy Ndombele. Then Lo Celso appears -along with Hugo Lloris and Hojberg- with a salary of just over six million euros per year, an amount that would break the salary ceiling at Villarreal.

In the operation with Tottenham The interest of the English in two footballers can play in favor of the Castellón club of the yellow set. Known is, since last summer, the desire of the London team in get hold of Pau Torres, for whom they filed offer close to 50 million euros. However, the central Vila-realense rejected the offer and the operation went to waste. The interest is still latent but at the moment no offer has come to Villarreal for the player.

Also, as reported by Marca Recently, Tottenham are also interested inPervis Estupinan. The Ecuadorian winger is one of the players for whom Villarreal is willing to listen to offers this summer, taking into account that the position is well covered with Pedraza, recently renewed, and an Alberto Moreno who is expected to be recovered by the start of the season. next season after the serious injury suffered last year.

The interest of the English team in Estupiñán can make the operation to stay in property with Giovani Lo Celso not so onerous for Villarreal.
