Lyon ‘want Tottenham outcast Giovani Lo Celso in loan transfer to replace Newcastle-bound Bruno Guimaraes’

LYON want to bring in Tottenham outcast Giovani Lo Celso on loan to replace the Newcastle-bound Bruno Guimaraes, reports suggest.

Guimaraes’ move to Newcastle from Lyon seems imminent and it’s been reported that he was due to undergo a medical with Eddie Howe’s side on Friday.

The uber-wealthy Magpies reportedly convinced the stubborn Ligue 1 outfit to let their prized-midfield asset leave by offering them £35million plus £8m in add-ons.

And to fill the gaping void the Brazilian will leave in their midfield, Lyon have decided that Spurs ace Lo Celso is the right man for the job, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The transfer expert claims that Lo Celso is at the top of Lyon’s list of replacements.

Spurs won’t stand in Lyon’s way of attempting to loan Lo Celso, who can hardly get a look in at White Hart Lane.

Even when fully fit, the Argentine’s been left out of the Spurs squad by Antonio Conte.

Spurs have already made it clear that they’re open to offloading Lo Celso and fellow marginalised team-mate Deli Alli before the transfer window closes.


The 25-year-old is also unlikely to have any qualms about joining Lyon until the summer in a bid to get his career back on track.

With the proposed transfer likely to appease all involved parties, the only possible stumbling block could be Spurs’ demands.

The North London club want Lyon to pay Lo Celso’s wages in full until June – plus stump up a loan fee in order to let him leave, Romano added.

It remains to be seen whether Lyon will agree to Tottenham’s proposition or decide to pursue one of their other transfer interests.

But the two clubs will have to come to an agreement over the next few days as the transfer deadline edges closer.
