Tottenham have further bolstered their midfield with the deadline-day acquisition of Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis.
Tottenham have reached an agreement for the loan signing of Giovani Lo Celso, with the club retaining an option to make his move from Real Betis permanent.
Lo Celso becomes Spursâ third acquisition of the window, following the signings of Tanguy Ndombele â who completed a Â£55million move in July â and Jack Clarke, who was immediately loaned back to Leeds United.
Fulhamâs versatile left-sided teenager Ryan Sessegnon is also thought to have completed his move to White Hart Lane for a reported Â£30m fee, although that transfer had yet to be officially confirmed.
âWe are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement for the season-long loan signing of Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis with an option to make the transfer permanent,â Spurs said in a statement.
âThe attacking midfielder will wear the number 18 shirt this season.â
Itâs time to sayÂ #HolaLoCelso!

He went on to feature 33 times in his first full Ligue 1 campaign and showed flashes of quality, but PSG sent him on loan to Betis last term and allowed them a purchase option in the deal.
Lo Celso enjoyed a stellar season in LaLiga, scoring nine goals and supplying four assists in 32 outings.
Betis unsurprisingly triggered their reported â¬22m option in April and signed Lo Celso to a four-year contract.
