Here is what is happening at the north London club:

Christian Eriksen joins Inter

On Tuesday, Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen joined Italian giants Inter for a fee in the region of £16.8million. There has been much speculation over the midfielder’s future since the summer.

Eriksen’s contract was due to expire in the summer and he becomes the third player from the Premier League to join Inter in January after the signings of Victor Moses and Ashley Young from Chelsea and Manchester United respectively.

Another less high-profile exit is that of young full-back Kyle Walker-Peters. The youngster is reportedly on the south coast having a medical ahead of completing a loan move to Southampton for the rest of the season.

Lo Celso signs, as Bergwijn fee agreed

As Eriksen leaves, Spurs completed the permanent signing of Argentinian playmaker Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis for a fee of £27million. Lo Celso has been on loan at Spurs from the Spanish club with an option of a permanent move.

The club from north London has now taken up that option. Lo Celso has not yet set the world alight at Spurs after supposedly arriving at Tottenham as Eriksen replacement last summer. Maybe the exit of Eriksen will lead to more game time and spur Lo Celso on to a more productive season with the north London club.

Bergwijn fee agreed

Tottenham also looks set to bring in PSV’s Netherlands international winger Steven Bergwijn. The 22-year-old has been in London the last few days as the clubs thrashed out a deal.

Reportedly the two clubs have now reached a deal worth around £25.6million plus add-ons for the highly-rated young winger. Bergwijn is reportedly set to have a medical and could become a Tottenham player by the end of Wednesday.

Will any other club do as much business as Tottenham prior to the January transfer window closing on Friday?
