Tottenham Hotspur have sealed the signings of Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon on the final day of the transfer window.

Signing these two has turned a poor window for Tottenham into a superb one – and their squad is now in a stronger position than it was last season.

The signing of Lo Celso means that Mauricio Pochettino is overwhelmed with good options in midfield – and him coupled alongside Tanguy Ndombele could prove to be a formidable partnership.

The addition of Sessegnon also means that Tottenham have a player who is comfortable in all positions on the left-hand side – and also has serious pace.

Spurs have also managed to keep hold of Toby Alderweireld – and his £25m release clause has expired, meaning if anyone from Europe wants to sign him, they will have to pay serious money.

The only potential problem positions for Tottenham will be right-back where they decided not to replace Kieran Trippier – and will instead rely on Juan Foyth, Serge Aurier, and Kyle Walker-Peters.

Upfront they also do not have a backup for Harry Kane – who was injured a lot last season.

So, if the same thing happens Spurs do not have a reserve striker to fill in – though Heung Min Son can play that lone forward role very well, as he proved last season with nine goals from that position.

Apart from these slight areas of concern though Tottenham look in great shape – and the additions of Sessegnon, Ndombele and Lo Celso are all good signings who could increase competitiveness in the squad.

It is a great dilemma for Mauricio Pochettino to have.
