What's the story?

According to various sources, Tottenham Hotspur will sign Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon from Real Betis and Fulham respectively after agreeing on a transfer with both the clubs.

In 45 appearances across all competitions, Lo Celso scored an impressive 16 goals prompting the Beticos to exercise the option to buy in his loan deal.
