“Top player” has now told Tottenham he wants to quit, he’s desperate for one club
Spurs’ Ange favourite has now “made clear his desire” to depart the club.
Postecoglou admires him greatly.
Following some transfer news this week, Tottenham Hotspur boss Ange Postecoglou may soon be forced to part ways with a Spurs player he greatly admires.
The most recent Spurs news
The north Londoners have had an absolutely fantastic start to the Premier League season.
Postecoglou’s tenure has started on a high note, with the Australian yet to suffer his first top-flight defeat as manager. Following Antonio Conte’s disappointing final season in charge, Spurs’ new manager has reintroduced an attractive, attack-minded style of play.
The Lilywhites have won four of their five league games, scoring 13 goals while ranking only behind Brighton and Man City as one of the division’s top three attacking clubs.
Certain Spurs players, such as Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr, who were never given a chance under Conte, are now flourishing as part of Postecoglou’s new-look squad.
Attacking midfielders Giovani Lo Celso and Bryan Gil, who were also overlooked by Conte, could be called up shortly.
Tottenham have won impressively against Bournemouth, Manchester United, Burnley, and Sheffield United since mid-August, with the last game significantly testing their character.
The Blades took an unexpected lead but late goals from Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski gave Spurs a hard-fought 2-1 win on Saturday.
Who might possibly leave the Spurs?
Postecoglou appears to have found a successful formula at N17, and his best Tottenham team is taking shape, which means that certain squad members could be let go before January.
During Postecoglou’s tenure, former superstar strikers Harry Kane, Sergio Reguilon, Joe Rodon, Djed Spence, Harry Winks, Alfie Devine, Troy Parrott, Dane Scarlett, Davinson Sanchez, and Tanguy Ndombele have all departed the club.
With an update on Lo Celso’s future, it may only be a matter of time before another follows them out the Spurs’ door.
The Argentine was linked with an exit in the summer window, and his departure is well and truly on the cards this winter. Postecoglou is actually a big fan of Lo Celso, as he admitted to the press recently.
“I’m really happy with Gio,” said the Tottenham boss. “He’s been really good in training. You can see he’s a quality player and I think the way we play suits him. I’ve enjoyed working with him and I think he’s enjoying himself in terms of the football we want to play.”
Despite this statement, a report from Spain has now claimed that Lo Celso has “made clear his desire” to leave Tottenham in the winter window. The player and his agents are apparently working on a transfer already. Lo Celso, for his part, has one specific destination in mind – Real Betis.
The 27-year-old apparently believes he will have far more opportunities returning to Spain with his former club.
