There ought to be a law that prohibits any Tottenham Hotspur news that isn’t related to the Champions League final on the day of the match. My brain isn’t capable of processing anything other than the fact that Spurs are playing in a European final in Madrid in a couple of hours.
But transfer rumors never sleep, so this will be a quick update — according to Gianluca DiMarzio, Tottenham have apparently upped their bid for Real Betis’ Argentine midfielder Giovani Lo Celso to €70m.
If you’re wondering how much that is in pounds sterling, the answer is... many pounds sterling. (OK fine, it’s £62.3m.) If it goes through it would shatter Spurs’ previous record signing of £42m for Davinson Sanchez two summers ago.
DiMarzio tends to be one of the more reliable rumor mongers out there, but even this is just a mention in a rumor roundup and is not the main story. So keep your powder dry, wait for further news, etc.
But yeah. If you’re wondering whether Tanguy Ndombele or Lo Celso were Spurs’ primary transfer target in this window, this might give a pretty significant clue.
