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.
