The Argentinian international is currently on loan at Spurs from Real Betis and showed that he is perhaps worthy of a permanent deal after producing an excellent display for Jose Mourinho’s side; earning a 7.85 rating. The 23-year-old has struggled for game time so far this season; making just seven starts for Spurs in all competitions but looks to have nailed down a spot in the starting eleven after another strong display.
Lo Celso posted on Twitter after the game, saying: “Big win at home. Thanks for your support.” Spurs fans quickly took the opportunity to praise the midfielder’s display, as well as posting that they hope he signs on a permanent deal during this month’s transfer window.
Do you hope Lo Celso signs permanently this month?

These Spurs fans clearly enjoyed Lo Celso’s tweet and performance and will be hoping to see him sign permanently before the conclusion of the transfer window.
What do we think?
It has been widely reported that Spurs will exercise their option to sign Lo Celso permanently this month and after Wednesday night’s performance, it is easy to see why Mourinho wants him in his team.
