Opinion: Five goalkeepers Tottenham should target this summer to replace Lloris

After over a decade of excellent service and commitment to the club, this summer seems like the perfect time to replace Hugo Lloris.

Here are five targets I feel Spurs should pursue to effectively replace the Tottenham captain:

David Raya

The Spaniard came through the Blackburn Rovers academy and is classed as homegrown in terms of UEFA’s quota when it comes to registering squads in European competitions.

He has kept 9 clean sheets this season in the Premier League for Brentford. He made his debut for the Spanish national team on March 26th 2022 in a friendly against Albania (Transfermarkt).

Gregor Kobel

After leaving Stuttgart in the summer of 2021, Kobel has looked to establish himself as Dortmund’s first-choice goalkeeper.

The Swiss international has kept 23 clean sheets for Dortmund and impressed during his time at Stuttgart, causing Dortmund to sign him for a total fee of 15 million Euros (Transfermarkt).

Robert Sanchez

One of the integral reasons to Brighton’s success recently has been Robert Sanchez. The Spaniard has kept 7 clean sheets this season: 6 in the Premier League and 1 in the FA Cup (Transfermarkt).

I feel Sanchez would be a good option for Spurs as he is very calm on the ball and possesses a good range of passing- something that Tottenham are lacking in their current goalkeepers.

Emiliano Martinez

Although he is a former Arsenal player, Emi Martinez could be a wildcard option that could solve Spurs’ goalkeeper dilemma.

With a World Cup to his name, Martinez showcased his talent in the penalty shootout against the Netherlands, saving 2 penalties to ensure Argentina progressed.

He also made a crucial save in the final; denying Randal Kolo Muani the chance to secure France back-to-back World Cups (Transfermarkt).

Diogo Costa

This one may seem unrealistic, but if Spurs were to pull it off I believe that their goalkeeping situation would be solved for years to come. Costa is Porto’s first-choice goalkeeper, as well as being the starter for Portugal.

The 23-year-old has 16 clean sheets to his name this season: 12 in the Liga Portugal and 4 in the Champions League. Costa has won the Portuguese league twice and has also won the Portuguese Super Cup twice (Transfermarkt).
