let him go,I’m not interested on the £27m player,I try convincing him but he insist,coach is ready to say good bye to the 25-years-old superstar

Journalist Ryan Taylor expects Giovani Lo Celso to leave Tottenham Hotspur after Ange Postecoglou fought to keep him over the summer.

Taylor has been speaking on The Spurs Chat Podcast and provided an update on the Argentine’s future.

Giovani Lo Celso has struggled for minutes at Spurs so far this campaign after such a promising pre-season under Ange Postecoglou.

The 27-year-old has been limited to three substitute appearances in the Premier League after picking up an injury in the League Cup clash at Fulham in August.

Lo Celso came off the bench for the final 15 minutes in the 2-1 defeat at Wolves on Saturday. The Argentina international showed glimpses of his quality, which suggests he could be the man to replace the injured James Maddison.

Yet, Daily Mirror journalist Ryan Taylor expects Lo Celso to head out the door in the near future.

Lo Celso expected to leave Tottenham

Taylor believes Lo Celso will end up leaving Tottenham in search of regular first-team football.

But the journalist also claimed that Postecoglou was the man who fought to keep the midfielder over the summer.

“In terms of Lo Celso, Postecoglou was actually a key driving force behind him staying at the club this summer,” he said. “But it just hasn’t worked out for him because Bissouma and Sarr have been so good.

“Obviously Maddison is probably the player that Lo Celso would take the position of if he was to get into the starting XI.

“He’s sort of halfway between an eight and a 10 really. I expect Lo Celso to probably leave now, I really do.

“I think he needs to play regular football and obviously he’s struggled to stay fit. I just don’t think it’s going to work out at Spurs, unfortunately, which is a shame as he was a top player when they brought him to the club.”

Lo Celso enjoyed an exceptional pre-season at Spurs as he netted two times in three games and looked a real bright spark in midfield.

However, the £27 million man has struggled to get an opportunity due to the influence of Maddison during the early stages of the campaign.

Of course, he could get a run in the side now with the Englishman ruled out until the new year.

Spurs lacked creativity in midfield on Saturday as Postecoglou opted for a trio of Yves Bissouma, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Pape Matar Sarr.

Lo Celso seems like the natural replacement for Maddison and he will get a chance to impress over the coming weeks.
