Tottenham have also missed out on Wolves striker Adama Traore, who instead joined Barcelona on loan.

Kulusevski has made 27 appearances for Juventus in all competitions this season, but only seven of them have been starters.

The 21-year-old – who has three and a half years left on his contract – has scored twice during the current campaign.

Bentancur has played more regularly for Juve this season, making 18 starts in all competitions and providing three assists.

Aston Villa were also keen to sign the 24-year-old Uruguay international but saw a £20.5million offer rejected by Juventus earlier this month, according to Sky in Italy.

Fabio Paratici, Tottenham’s chief football officer, oversaw the signings of Kulusevski from Atalanta in January 2020 and Bentancur from Boca Juniors in 2017 during his time at Juventus.

Sky Sports News has been told that once Spurs complete the deals for Kulusevski and Bentancur they are unlikely to sign any other players before the deadline.

However, there could still be departures from the club, with Tanguy Ndombele, Dele Alli and Bryan Gil all potentially leaving before Monday night.

Non-League striker Tanner fails to accept Spurs’ personal terms

Lewes striker Ollie Tanner’s transfer to Tottenham is complete, with the Isthmian Premier League club claiming the player has been unable to agree personal terms.

Tottenham reached an agreement with Lewes to sign the teenager earlier this week but the East Sussex side expect the player to stay with them.

A statement from Lewes read: “Lewes Football Club would like to confirm that while the club and a Premier League club have agreed to an agreement in principle for the transfer of Ollie Tanner, Ollie and the Premier League club have ultimately not been able to agree on personal terms and he remains a Lewes FC player.

“Tanner missed today’s game against AFC Hornchurch through an injury suffered midweek and we look forward to welcoming him back once he recovers.”
