Back in 2016, Lopez went on loan to Tottenham Hotspur from Espanyol and, although he wasn’t given game time galore, he reportedly impressed the North London coaches.
There was an option to buy inserted into the loan and Spurs were interested in signing the shot-stopper on a permanent deal, however, talks soon collapsed.
It is said that Daniel Levy and co tried to knock the price down so much that it became ridiculously low for Espanyol and they welcomed Lopez back instead.
Lopez later left on a free transfer to join Real Betis before impressing enough to earn a Roma transfer soon after.
However, Jose Mourinho apparently wants a more experienced keeper at Roma next season and thus Lopez could leave, with Barcelona reportedly having contacted his agents for information over a possible move.
Spurs Web Opinion:
The decision not to buy Lopez after his loan has looked worse and worse over the years, especially because the figure would have been rather low. If he signs for Barcelone, albeit probably as a back-up, it will only compile the woeful decision from Levy and co.
