Real Betis are keen to sign Giovani Lo Celso on loan this summer, but there are many complications with a move for the cash-strapped La Liga side.

'We're a poor impoverished Spanish side. Can we please have him for a packet of cornflakes?'
Yep, they’re taking the piss. I think he’ll do fine under Postecoglu anyway, he’ll like someone as progressive with his passing and ball carrying as Gio

Yeah being "keen" is totally worthless. All these clubs seem to want him for peanuts.

The fact that no club seems to be willing to pay 20m or so for him is a real problem.

Lets see if Ange is happy to integrate him back into the team and use him sparingly.

I think he can do a reasonable job, as he has shown before, as a bit-part player further up field, if we cant offload him.

The issue is his injuries and supposedly being a bit odd.

But he has always looked an excellent player for Argentina and Villareal in CL.

I was actually really excited about him when he first joined and thought he would be a game changer for Poch.

He is very much a high press player, yet we havent played that the entire time he has been at the club.

Last sentence is key for me. Poch wanted him to reinvigorate midfield and then he ended up playing low block bollocks for Mourinho.
