Born: 09 April 1996 (Rosario, Argentina)
Giovani Lo Celso joined us in August, 2019, from Real Betis, arriving initially on loan before completing a permanent transfer in January, 2020.
He scored his first goal for the Club in a 4-0 Champions League victory away to Crvena zvezda in November, 2019, before scoring the historic first-ever FA Cup goal in our new stadium in a 2-1 third round replay win over Middlesbrough in January, 2020.
The attacking midfielder began his career with Rosario Central and his performances during his time in the Argentine Primera Division and Copa Libertadores saw him earn a move to Europe with Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2016.
After initially being loaned back to Rosario, he returned to PSG at the start of 2017 and went on to make a total of 54 appearances, scoring six times for the Ligue 1 side, as well as being part of the squads that won the league championship in 2018, two Coupe de France titles and the 2018 Coupe de la Ligue before joining Real Betis on loan for the duration of the 2018/19 campaign.
Capped at international level by Argentina, Giovani impressed in Spain during that season, scoring 16 times in 45 appearances in all competitions before his loan was made into a permanent transfer.
