The summer transfer window has closed and Tottenham fans have been reacting to the club’s business, which included two deadline day deals.
Spurs announced the signing of Serge Aurier from Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of £23 million. The right-back has signed a five-year contract.
Fernando Llorente’s arrival from Swansea was also confirmed. The Spanish striker has joined for a fee of around £12m.
However, Tottenham failed in a late bid to bring in Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes.
Meanwhile, Spurs target Ross Barkley turned down a last minute move to Chelsea despite taking part in a medical with the London club. He will remain with Everton until January at least.
Prior to deadline day, Tottenham brought in three players: Paulo Gazzaniga, Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth.
Kyle Walker and Kevin Wimmer departed, with Spurs making huge profits on both players.
At the time of writing, Vincent Janssen is being linked with a loan move to Brighton, who have been granted a deadline extension.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the club’s summer business following the close of the transfer window.
We’ve escaped this window with Walker as the only major loss. Maybe we haven’t got in enough but keeping majority together was also key.

#thfc Spurs interest remains but feeling is that today was never the day. Suspect the injury was a big part of that.

Starting to think we’re not going to get Messi this window

Keeping Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Alderweireld etc was the most important thing this transfer window. Additions were merely a bonus.

Moshiri: “Barkley wants to reconsider his position in January.”
– when #Tottenham want to sign him.

Barkley to potentially come in January when fit. Would’ve liked a pacey player like Zaha but don’t think the window was terrible.

Not the Kane back up we wanted but an experienced winner with PL goals to his name, offering a clear Plan B when we need a goal. Not awful. https://t.co/ZgCWqnTF8d

‘Window has been a success/disaster/indifferent’: how can anyone judge when none of these players has played for their club yet?

#thfc Pochettino’s said Spurs can’t compete with richer clubs for players but they’ve rivalled Chelsea for Fernando Llorente and won…

I don’t think it’s been bad. A 3rd choice ‘Keeper, an upgrade on Wimmer, a quality right back & A proven Premier league goalscorer!

Wasn’t an amazing window but it wasn’t *that* bad. Hopefully we can sort this Wembley bullshit and all that. #COYS

Lot of moans/meltdowns happening.
Lived through a transfer window of Nelsen & Saha.
This one’s been just fine thanks

Personally one of our better windows in recent years. Squad quality significantly improved and no Google required.
