Spurs fans are worried that Argentine midfielder Giovani Lo Celso could leave the club in January after the 23-year-old reportedly said he was open to the possibility.

According to Marca (via TranSpurs), Lo Celso could be set to quit the North London club despite his loan deal being supposed to run until the end of the season. The former PSG man was brought in by Mauricio Pochettino during the summer, with the option of making the transfer permanent, but he found game time hard to come by under the former manager following a hip injury.

The creative midfielder, who is valued at £45 million (as per Transfermarkt), scored on his full debut for Spurs in the win against Red Star Belgrade, but following Pochettino’s sacking in November, he has played just two minutes under new boss Jose Mourinho. With Dele Alli’s upturn in form, it seems as if Giovani Lo Celso will have to settle for a role as a squad rotation player.

Will Lo Celso start getting game time under Mourinho?

Yes

No

Spurs fans are clearly quite concerned that Lo Celso could quit the club in January, although some admit that if the 23-year-old isn’t needed by Mourinho then he won’t be a great loss.

What do we think?

Lo Celso looked impressive in the win at Red Star Belgrade but was always likely to see his game time suffer when Mourinho was brought in as Pochettino’s replacement. With the busy Christmas period quickly approaching, the Argentine may get some more game time and be more willing to stay for the long-term.
