Tottenham have already snapped up Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele for a club-record fee this summer and if recent reports are to be believed they are now close to securing the services of Real Betis’ Giovani Lo Celso (The Sun).

The 23-year-old scored 16 goals and registered 6 assists for Betis in 46 appearances last season (according to and is now said to be available for a fee in the region of around £45million.

Meanwhile, Tottenham’s North London neighbours, Arsenal are close to wrapping up a deal to take Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos on loan for the upcoming season (Daily Mirror).

Spurs were also linked with Ceballos earlier in the summer but the Spanish international has now supposedly made up his mind to move to the Emirates after receiving assurances of playing time from Unai Emery (AS).

Some Arsenal fans took to social media to gloat about the fact that Gunners have beaten Tottenham to both Ceballos as well as Saint Etienne defender William Saliba, who is also said to be close to a move to Arsenal (Daily Mirror).

So some Spurs fans decided to give the Arsenal fans a reality check on the difference between the business both clubs have done so far this summer.
