Stan Collymore has suggested that Tottenham is 'the club doing it' for him if they sign potential targets Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon, whilst he backed reported Everton target Wilfried Zaha to succeed if he moves.

Both Tottenham and Everton are in for a busy transfer deadline day, with the duo hoping to secure the services of some highly-rated attacking players. 

BBC Sport report that Spurs have agreed on a fee with Real Betis for their midfielder Lo Celso, whilst Sky Sports report that the London club are hopeful of signing Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon on deadline day.


Meanwhile, over in Merseyside, Everton target Zaha has handed in a transfer request at Crystal Palace, with the Toffees keen to sign him up before Thursday's 5pm deadline, according to the Times. 

Nonetheless, former Premier League striker Collymore took to his personal Twitter account to offer his thoughts on these potential deals. 

Tottenham are already in Europe, and after reaching the Champions League final last season and moving into their new stadium, they want to take that next step under Mauricio Pochettino.

Bulking up their squad with proven players or players such as Sessegnon, who are tipped for big things, will help them in that road to success.

As for Everton, after a top-eight finish under Marco Silva in his debut campaign last season, they want to reach Europe and they will be hopeful of reaching doing just that this term. 

A potential deal for Zaha would no doubt add extra flavour and bite to their forward line, as their chances of gatecrashing the top-six would increase with his capture.
