The Daily Mail have credited Chelsea with an interest in Dinamo Zagreb goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic, who is rumoured to be on Tottenham’s radar.

Multiple reports over recent months have indicated that Tottenham are lookout for Hugo Lloris’ long-term successor, with the reliable Alasdair Gold confirming the same via Football.London on Thursday.

Everton’s Jordan Pickford (TuttoMercatoWeb), Borussia Monchengladbach’s Yann Sommer (GiveMeSport) and Aston Villa’s Emi Martinez (GiveMeSport) have all been mooted as potential replacements for Lloris.

Another name that appeared recently was that of Livakovic, with Ben Jacobs revealing on the Spurs Chat podcast last week that Tottenham scouted him at the World Cup.

The 27-year-old was one of the best goalkeepers on show in Qatar and was the hero of Croatia’s penalty shootout wins over both Japan and Brazil.

However, if The Mail’s latest update is to be believed, Spurs may have competition from London rivals Chelsea for Livakovic’s signature. The publication asserts that the Croat’s name has been discussed by the Blues hierarchy ahead of the January transfer window.

Spurs Web Opinion

I am never a fan of signing players on the back of their performances in major tournaments. That is particularly true when we are talking about goalkeepers, who have to be assessed based on their consistency over an extended period of time rather than just five or six good displays.
