The Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport have claimed that Spurs have completed the signing of Yevhen Konoplyanka.
Available on a free transfer, the 25-year old Dnipro winger would make an exciting addition to the ranks but Tottenham fans seem to be generally sceptical that the deal will go through. Here’s the reaction on Twitter.
Gazzetta dello Sport in Italy understand Tottenham have signed Konoplyanka. So far this summer I think that's the 6th time he has "signed"

Konoplyanka has had more Tottenham medicals than Paulinho has goals.

I don't believe the Yehven Konoplyanka stories for one second. Pochettino and Mitchell don't like him because of lack of work rate #THFC

Konoplyanka is already proving to be an adequate replacement for Leandro Damião in the rumour stakes. Predicting deadline day disappointment

Oh dear, the Konoplyanka rumours are back. #THFC fans should know better than to believe this. Now if Toby A signs I’ll be excited.

Interesting how Konoplyanka is on his way to Tottenham to undergo a medical. Yet at the same time he's in Madrid pic.twitter.com/M6arJoOSlz

#thfc Someone has suggested Konoplyanka has flown to Madrid because Levy is there finalising Alderweireld.
