Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed they have completed the signings of striker Fernando Llorente and defender Serge Aurier on the deadline day of the summer transfer window.

The Spain international striker was long been linked with a move to Chelsea. The Premier League winners failed to sign him in January as the striker was hoping to reunite with Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge. The former played under the Italian manager at Juventus.

Llorente signed a two-year deal for Mauricio Pochettino's side, meaning he will at the club until 2019.

A statement on Tottenham official website read, "We are delighted to announce the signing of Fernando Llorente from Swansea City. The Spain striker, 32, has signed a contract with the Club until 2019."

Aurier, on the other hand, was no longer required at Paris Saint-Germain after they secured Dani Alves' services. However, the right-back banned from entering the United Kingdom after he was handed a two-year suspended prison sentence for attacking a police officer in Paris in 2016.

However, the Home Office granted Aurier the UK work visa, which will allow him to join the north London club. The Ivory Coast international signed a five-year deal, which will keep him at Tottenham until 2022.

"We are delighted to announce the signing of Serge Aurier from Paris Saint-Germain. The right-back has signed a contract with the Club until 2022 and will wear the number 24 shirt," a statement read on Tottenham's official website.

Aurier and Llorente become Tottenham's fourth and fifth signing, respectively following the arrival of Davinson Sanchez, Paulo Gazzaniga and Juan Foyth earlier in the summer transfer window.
