Atletico Madrid match Spurs offer for Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso

Tottenham face competition from Atletico Madrid for Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is a big fan of his fellow Argentine and has already seen two offers turned down by Betis.

The last bid was for €55m and now Atletico have matched that offer - though it is heavily based on bonuses.

For their part, reports Estadio Deportivo, Betis have referred both clubs to Lo Celso's €100m buyout clause.

Betis signed the midfielder permanently from PSG towards the end of last season for €22m.
