Spurs sign Bentancur and Kulusevski from Juventus as Alli leads departures | Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham confirmed the signings of Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski from Juventus on a busy deadline day for the club.

Their arrivals came as Dele Alli agreed a permanent move to Everton and Tanguy Ndombele joined Lyon, becoming the first of several players expected to depart on loan.

Juventus announced that Bentancur had moved for an initial €19m (£15.8m), with another €6m in potential add-ons. The 24-year-old Uruguay midfielder, who has 46 caps, has a contract to 2026.

Kulusevski has joined on an 18-month loan, for which Spurs are paying €10m, with an obligation to make the move permanent for €35m if certain objectives are met. The 21-year-old can play on the wing or as a No 10.

Alli’s move to Everton is due to go through, subject to a medical, on the day Frank Lampard was confirmed as the new manager at Goodison Park. Everton are taking Alli on a free but will pay £10m for him after 20 appearances, and add-ons could take the fee to about £30m.

Lyon confirmed they had paid a €1.42m to take Ndombele back, with an option to make the move permanent for a fee understood to be €65m. Ndombele is Tottenham’s club-record signing but has shown his talent only in flashes.

Valencia have completed a move to take Bryan Gil on loan from Spurs, who have an agreement in place for Giovani Lo Celso to go on loan to Villarreal.
