According to Sport, Xavi Hernandez’s hopes of acquiring Giovani Lo Celso are about to fade because Tottenham is unwilling to let go of the midfield player.


Following the club’s unsuccessful attempts to make the transfer happen in the summer, Sky Sports reported on Wednesday that Xavi had communicated to the Barca hierarchy his desire to bring Lo Celso in for January.


The Spanish coach allegedly saw it as a litmus test for how much the Catalan club supports him.

Giovani is not wanted to leave Tottenham. The same assertion has now been confirmed by Lo Celso Sport, who say that Xavi “clearly” told the club’s board that Lo Celso is the best option to take Gavi’s place after he got hurt.


The 43-year-old is rumored to be a big fan of the Tottenham player and think he can get along well with Robert Lewandowski.


The source notes that it will be difficult to complete a possible deal for Lo Celso, first and foremost because it is unclear if Barcelona could pay the midfield player’s salary.


Furthermore, it is claimed that Tottenham “haven’t agreed” to start talks for the Argentina international.
