Lo Celso will add goals and creativity to Pochettino’s midfield next season. The 23-year-old bagged 16 goals in the Spanish League last year.
Pochettino will help him improve as a player and they could have a gem on their hands.
The Argentine has tremendous potential and it will be interesting to see how he develops over the next few seasons.
Lo Celso will want to make an immediate impact next season. He might need some time to adapt to the English conditions and the fans will have to be patient with him.
Some of the Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on his arrival and here are the reactions from earlier.
