Champions League finalists, Tottenham, have been uncharacteristically in the transfer market this summer. The club has allowed reliable right-back Kieran Trippier to join Atletico Madrid. New signings are on the cards for Spurs with Giovani Lo Celso in advanced negotiations with the Londoners. 

Trippier’s hard work paying off


Trippier has had something of a dream year, impressing in the England shirt at the World Cup, then helping Tottenham reach the UCL final. With his stock on the rise, Spurs have decided to capitalize. The defender joins Atletico Madrid, one of La Liga‘s top sides.

Atleti is undergoing a significant transformation under the leadership of longtime manager Diego Simeone. Trippier has signed a three-year contract with the transfer fee rumored to be around £20m.

Pochettino’s new recruits


Hoping to avoid the injury and suspension concerns that plagued the second part of their last season, Spurs have delved into the transfer market. It is something that is especially needed since Danny Rose, Spurs’s first choice for the left-back position, is also seeking a move elsewhere.

The left midfielder, and part-time wing-back, Ryan Sessegnon is targetted as a replacement. The youngster is on the radar of numerous clubs. Sessegnon has had the chance to play just one season in the Premier League, with Fulham relegating at the end of last season.

But, Tottenham’s most exciting move might come via the Primera Division. Giovani Lo Celso is looking for a new challenge following his spell at Real Betis. It’s understood that the midfielder is keen on employing his talents to the Premier League.

Real Betis look ready to accept the transfer request provided they are able to secure a replacement. Lyon’s captain Nabil Fekir is an advanced negotiations with the Spanish club and could sign in the following days.
