Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso is 'trying to force' a move away from Spain, with Tottenham
The report claims the offer Spurs had rejected was a £50m plus add-ons deal, with matters being complicated by the significant sell-on fee Betis would have to give to Lo Celso's former club Paris Saint-Germain.
Nonetheless, Lo Celso 'fancies' the move and is eager to team up with fellow Argentine Pochettino in north London in what would be a record-breaking transfer for the club.
Despite reaching the Champions League final this season, Spurs are tipped for a summer of change, with several first-team stars like Kieran Trippier and Fernando Llorente likely to depart, while Christian Eriksen's future hangs in the balance.
Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon is another player linked with a potential move to Tottenham, who appear willing to spend significantly more this summer than they have in recent times.
The likes of Tanguy Ndombele, James Maddison, Jarrod Bowen and even Gareth Bale have all also been linked with a move to north London.
