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:
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).
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).
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.
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).
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).
