According to reports from Spain, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Roma goalkeeper Pau Lopez, who spent the 2016/17 season on loan with the Lilywhites.
Lopez was the club’s third-choice goalkeeper behind Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm during his time in North London and failed to make a single first-team appearance for the club.
However, he managed to win back the number one jersey at Espanyol on his return to Spain and his performances for the Catalonians saw him snapped by Real Betis in 2018.
After a fantastic season between the sticks at Betis, Roma signed the 25-year-old for around €23.5m (£21m) last summer. However, Lopez has failed to make the expected impact since arriving in the Italian capital.
According to Estadio Deportivo, the goalkeeper, who is currently out of action with a fractured wrist, is deemed surplus to requirements at Roma, with the club looking to cash in on him this summer.
The report claims that the Serie A side want around €40m (£36m) for the Spanish international this summer, with Spurs said to be interested in his services, along with Chelsea and West Ham.

Lopez has gone from strength to strength since leaving Tottenham and has proven with his performances for the last three years that he is good enough to be number one at a top European club. However, there will be much better goalkeeping options available this summer for the rumoured £36m price range.
