According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Xavi Hernandez plans to bring Giovani Lo Celso to the Nou Camp this summer. Xavi appreciates the Argentinian midfielder. The 27-year-old star spent 18 months playing for Villarreal on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.
Lo Celso thrived under the guidance of coach Unai Emery. The midfielder born in 1996 left a bold mark on Villarreal’s journey to the semi-finals of the Champions League 2021/2022.
Lo Celso plays in the position of an attacking midfielder, possessing a skillful left hand. Besides, the great long-range shooting ability is another strong point of Lo Celso. The current contract between the Argentina international and Tottenham has two years left.
Whether Lo Celso leaves or stays depends largely on the staffing plan of coach Ange Postecoglou. The Australian strategist is expected to help revive Tottenham after a bad season.
As for Lo Celso, leaving Tottenham is considered a reasonable decision at present. Barcelona promises to help elevate the career of the Argentine midfielder. Lo Celso possesses top-notch football experience when he used to play for teams like PSG or Real Betis.
