Barcelona are said to be considering a surprise January swoop for out-of-favour Tottenham midfielder Giovani Lo Celso.
WHAT HAPPENED? According toFootball Insider, Xavi's side could be lining up an unlikely move for the 27-year-old when the transfer window reopens, after he impressed for Villarreal in La Liga on loan from Spurs last season. The Argentina international has made just two appearances for Tottenham thus far under new boss Ange Postecoglou.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Available for a reported fee of just £12 million ($14.5m), Lo Celso has seen his game time limited following the arrival and inspired form of England international James Maddison. He has mustered a total of 86 appearances for Tottenham since his arrival at the club from Real Betis back in 2020.
