2. Giovani Lo Celso
Gio, Gio, Gio, what in the world happened? Hampered by injury and unable to maintain a run in the first team, Lo Celso is, like Bergwijn, another failure to launch. He showed signs of promise and enjoyed some accomplished performances, but not enough to keep him from a potential date with the guillotine. Gio just returned from another injury absence and came in late off the bench against Watford on New Year’s Day.
His name was recently mentioned in a possible swap deal with Juventus for Dejan Kulusevski, but it remains to be seen whether Conte decides to give Lo Celso a prolonged chance at Spurs. The other looming question is whether other teams, thanks to a litany of injuries in recent years, are willing to fork out millions on a player who spends more time on the treatment table than on the pitch.
