Unused by Jorge Sampaoli in Russia and deemed surplus to requirements by Thomas Tuchel at Paris Saint-German, Giovani Lo Celso has had a difficult couple of months but the 22-year-old completed a loan switch to Real Betis on Friday and is set to light up LaLiga this season.
Lo Celso arrived in Sevilla this morning and has already put pen to paper on a season-long loan deal with Los Verdiblancos that includes an option to make the move permanent for a figure rumoured to be around €30 million.
“I’m very happy to be at a club with such a great history,” Lo Celso told the club’s official website.
“One of the things that made me come was the club’s project. Any player would get motivated by it.”

I’m really excited about this move. Betis were a delight to watch last season, and Lo Celso seems perfectly suited to their style of play.
Agreed Toby – looks like a great move for all involved.
