Tottenham fans wanting to get a good look at Giovani Lo Celso in action this evening as Argentina open their Copa America campaign against Colombia.

The 23-year-old has been tipped to seal a move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer after his stunning form in La Liga for Real Betis.

Initially joining Los Verdiblancos on loan at Paris Saint-Germain, the Spanish side made the move permanent in April for € 22million.

If indeed the player does leave the Estadio Benito Villamarin before the transfer deadline, Betis look set to make a huge profit on the mid-fielder just a few months after securing his services on a permanent basis.

Manchester United are at the front of the queue after a visit to England during the week.

Pochettino's side have already bid for the talented player but they want to get their offer as far as possible. Lo Celso move on.

The Argentine does have a release clause of £ 89m in its Betis contract, though the club is believed to be willing to let it go for around £ 67m.
