​Tottenham will sign Ryan Sessegnon on deadline day in a deal worth £25m - with a potential £5m in add ons - while Giovani Lo Celso is also set to join from Real Betis. 

Sessegnon is travelling to London on Thursday morning, while Lo Celso has already arrived - with the suggestions being that the Argentinian will join on a season-long loan with an obligation to buy.

Spurs' interest in Sessegnon - which has been established for over a year - ha stepped up in recent weeks, with a deal to secure the England youth star all but assured ahead of the 5pm deadline on Thursday.


The news was initially broken by transfer guru ​David Ornstein of the BBC, and followed up by various other sources, with Tottenham now set to double their total arrivals for the entire summer in a matter of hours. 

The club-record acquisition of Tanguy Ndombele and the arrival of Jack Clarke have already been confirmed, the latter however rejoined former club Leeds United on a season-long loan for the new campaign.

As a part of the Sessegnon deal, 22-year-old Josh Onomah will join the Cottagers in exchange. Having risen through the club's youth ranks, Onomah has since enjoyed loan spells at ​Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday in the past two seasons.

These developments by Ornstein also move us over to another big-money acquisition in the form of Lo Celso. He states that the deal to sign the Argentine midfielder is likely to be a loan with an obligation to buy, which is thought to be close to £55.4m.

That figure is according to ​Goal, who say the deal for Lo Celso - who pulled out of Betis' squad for their friendly with Las Palmas on Wednesday night - will make the 23-year-old the club's second most expensive signing behind former Lyon enforcer Ndombele.

His imminent move is set to be completed in the 'next hours' after ​Fabrizio Romano confirmed the player had landed in London, with the 23-year-old ready to put pen to paper on a move that has been touted throughout the summer - as Spurs fought off interest from across Europe.
