Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that he expects Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho to bring in a keeper to the club this summer to compete with Hugo Lloris.

There has been a lot written about the goalkeeping situation at Spurs over recent weeks with multiple reports suggesting that the club are looking to add to their goalkeeping ranks this summer.

Tottenham have been linked with a move for Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha (Il Tempo) as well as Ajax stopper Andre Onana (The Sun) when the transfer market reopens.

Michel Vorm, who made a rare start between the sticks in Tottenham’s FA Cup defeat to Norwich City, is expected to leave the club in the summer when his contract runs out.

Gold believes it is inevitable that the Spurs boss will want to reinforce his goalkeeping ranks and suggested that the Lilywhites could go for a British stopper in order to help their foreign player limit.

Gold said: “Michel Vorm will likely leave the club for a second time this summer and Mourinho will want to bring in another keeper to challenge Lloris.

“Gazzaniga did well at first to step in for Lloris but he’s looked less assured the more regular his game time, which isn’t a good sign.

“Tottenham could do with a British goalkeeper to help their foreign player limits for next season and it will be interesting to see if Mourinho asks for such a stopper.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I don’t think Jose and his coaching staff trust Gazzaniga as much as Pochettino’s staff did and for that reason, I believe we are likely to bring in a keeper with a view to being Lloris long-term successor in the summer. With the Frenchman now entering into the final few years of his career, it would make sense to think ahead.
