Over the past two transfer windows, Tottenham have brought in a swathe of talent in players like Micky van de Ven, James Maddison, Brennan Johnson, and Timo Werner.

However, the club have still done little in the way of outgoings over the past year, aside from the massive Harry Kane deal, along with Harry Winks' move to Leicester City.

Over the course of the season, some players, like Argentinian midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, have seen sporadic game time, raising the question of whether or not they'll have a future under Ange Postecoglou.

Now, Lo Celso's future seems a lot clearer, as TuttoMercatoWeb report that the club are interested in extending the player's contract by two years.

According to the outlet, the midfielder is "part of the English club's plans for the future and so negotiations could start soon for the renewal of the contract expiring in 2025."

The former PSG player has made 20 appearances for the club across all competitions this season, netting two goals and two assists across those fixtures (Transfermarkt). He's had to consistently battle for playing time against the favorite in the attacking midfield role, James Maddison.

Pape Matar Sarr has also been a regular in the central role, and with links to Chelsea's Conor Gallagher over the past few months, Lo Celso's future has been largely unclear until now.

Though it seems that no formal extension on his contract has been made, Lo Celso may yet have a future in North London if the latest reports are true, giving Ange a solid attacking option after Maddison.
