Tottenham Hotspur will surely soon have to look beyond Hugo Lloris for their number one keeper in North London, with the Frenchman being the wrong side of 30.

Paulo Gazzaniga has put in a very positive and impressive audition, but even the Argentine is nearly 28-years-old.

Spurs have youngsters in the form of Brandon Austin and Alfie Whiteman, but could they add a new name to that roster in the next year?

The Glasgow Evening Times reported this week that Spurs have joined a host of other clubs in monitoring Gillingham’s 17-year-old goalkeeper, Joe Walsh. Celtic, Man City, and Everton are also said to be keen on the young shot-stopper.

While Walsh has not made his senior debut for the Gills yet, he did impress against Tottenham in the EFL trophy last week, keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 win for his side.

Back when Gillingham manager, Steve Evans, took over the club earlier this year, he heaped praise on Walsh immediately.

He said (Kent Online): “The big plus is Walsh. I didn’t expect (him) to have that quality. I have got the go-ahead from our chairman to sign another goalkeeper but I am thinking, ‘where do I go and sign better than Joe Walsh?’”
