Spanish sports outlet Mundo Deportivo has claimed that Giovani Lo Celso, the Tottenham midfield star is on the radar of Barcelona with Xavi Hernandez supposedly a huge fan on the Argentinian.
With a new manager taking charge and an opportunity to showcase his skills anew, Lo Celso’s future at Spurs appeared bright. However, recent developments indicate that the Argentine maestro has his sights set on pastures anew.
The allure of donning the colors of one of Europe’s most prestigious clubs has captivated Lo Celso’s attention. Barcelona are known for their midfield dominance and the Argentinian fits in like a glove.
As Barcelona prepare for departure of midfield stalwart Sergio Busquets, they are bound to be on the look out for someone who can provide intricate passes to the forwards. Although Lo Celso does not play in the same position, he has certain abilities.
Lo Celso’s impressive loan spell at Villarreal has undeniably caught the eye of Xavi Hernandez, as the midfielder left an indelible mark under the guidance of Unai Emery. The opportunity to rekindle his career in the illustrious English top-flight, under Emery’s expert tutelage, presents an enticing proposition for the immensely talented Argentine.
Should Lo Celso bid farewell to Tottenham, it would signal the end of a chapter that commenced with immense promise. Following his surplus status under former manager Antonio Conte, the midfielder actively sought opportunities elsewhere.
The mere thought of witnessing Lo Celso adorned in the iconic Barcelona jersey is certain to set the rumour mill spinning. Tottenham might be willing to part ways with the player this summer.

Lo Celso in the right system is an unbelievable talent. He needs to play in a role that he is comfortable in. His technical prowess, exceptional vision, and expansive passing range make him an irresistible prospect for any team.
With his innate ability to orchestrate play, Lo Celso possesses the vision and creativity needed to thrive within the Barcelona midfield. However, Tottenham do not have many players like the Argentinian and we must try to keep a hold of him. Let’s see how this transfer pans out.
