Tottenham Hotspur fans were keeping a close eye on the Copa America clash between Argentina and Colombia on Saturday night, with reported transfer target Giovani Lo Celso playing against current star Davinson Sanchez.

Spurs have been heavily linked with the Real Betis midfielder in recent weeks, with BBC Sport suggesting that the North London outfit have had an offer rejected for the La Liga ace.

Things did not go to plan for reported Tottenham target Lo Celso in the Copa America game in Bahia however, with Colombia prevailing 2-0 thanks to goals from Roger Martinez and Duvan Zapata.

The Spurs fans will have noticed that the Betis man operated predominantly out on the right flank for Argentina, which is not his natural position.

Tottenham supporters have their fingers crossed that this summer will be a positive one in the transfer market, with the London club not signing anyone over the course of the last two windows.

Lo Celso is highly rated after his excellent season with Betis and landing him would bolster Spurs’ depleted midfield ranks.

However, after watching the Argentina game, Tottenham’s fans took to Twitter to express their opinions on the 23-year-old – with mixed reactions from the Spurs faithful.

Here are the best tweets.
