Lo Celso Nears Tottenham Exit as Galatasaray Move Beckons

Giovani Lo Celso’s time at Tottenham Hotspur is nearing its end, with Turkish outlet Yeni Asir reporting that a transfer to Galatasaray is on the verge of completion.

The Argentine midfielder, limited in playing time under manager Ange Postecoglou, reportedly seeks a fresh start with the Turkish Super Lig side.

Galatasaray reportedly aims to finalize the transfer before the Turkish window closes on February 9th. Lo Celso is said to be keen on the move, seeking more regular playing opportunities.

Sources close to the deal suggest it is nearing completion, with Lo Celso expected to bid farewell to his Tottenham teammates soon.

The arrival of Lucas Bergvall and Tottenham’s comfortable league position, coupled with their exits from cup competitions, lessen the immediate need for Lo Celso.

However, his departure could open up opportunities for other midfielders in the squad.

Official confirmation of the transfer is expected shortly. Specifics regarding the transfer fee and contract length remain unknown.

Lo Celso has made 96 appearances for Tottenham since joining in 2020 for £27.2 million. Some Spurs fans may be disappointed, as Lo Celso showed early-season promise under Postecoglou.

This move, if completed, would mark the end of Lo Celso’s turbulent stint at Tottenham. It remains to be seen if he can rediscover his form under Galatasaray manager Okan Buruk and become a key player in their title challenge.
