Sky Sports pundit Craig Bellamy has told The Debate that he thinks Tottenham will have a busy transfer deadline day, whilst Andy Townsend has hailed Serge Aurier.

Spurs head into deadline day having made three signings this summer, all of which have some in the last eight days as goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga as well as defenders Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth have joined Mauricio Pochettino's side.

However, more new signings are needed, with fans still keen to see a number of new faces arrive before tonight's 11pm deadline, though at least one signing is imminent.

Mauricio Pochettino, manager of Spurs looks on prior to the Pre-Season Friendly match beween Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus at Wembley Stadium on August 5, 2017 in London, England.

As reported by Sky Sports, Paris Saint-Germain right back Serge Aurier is set to join in a £23million deal after being granted a work permit on Wednesday, and his deal should be confirmed early on deadline day.

As for other areas of the Spurs side, manager Mauricio Pochettino may still look for another central midfielder and an attacking player, whether that's a winger or another centre forward, with Spanish newspaper AS claiming that Tottenham are pursuing a late deal for Swansea target man Fernando Llorente.

Ahead of the deadline day chaos, pundits Craig Bellamy and Andy Townsend spoke to Sky Sports' The Debate about Premier League clubs and their transfer business, tackling the subject of Tottenham after a frustrating summer in the transfer market.

Bellamy noted that it's typical of Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to do business at the last minute, predicting that the Tottenham chief will be busy today as he attempts to get players in and out of North London on the final day of trading.

Fellow pundit Townsend added that he thinks imminent signing Aurier is an example of 'serious business' from Tottenham, as he can replace Kyle Walker's athleticism at right back following the England international's move to Manchester City, with Townsend raving about the deal given that he would come at just half of Walker's fee.

"Tottenham are always busy on the last day, Daniel Levy always leaves things to the last minute," said Bellamy. "I can see him doing business on Deadline Day. At the same time, I like this Spurs team. There isn't too much more you need to come into it. I think they'll be in the top four. They have too much quality in their team, and that's even playing at Wembley. They'll be fine. Don't forget, they didn't start too well last year."

"If they get Serge Aurier from PSG, he is a phenomenal athlete. A ferocious athlete. To let Walker go for £50m, and get Aurier in for perhaps half that, could be serious business," added an impressed Townsend.
