The Daily Mail have reported that Tottenham will have to part with £25m this summer in order to lure Aaron Ramsdale away from Bournemouth.
This comes after the Cherries were relegated from the Premier League this summer, with Ramsdale scooping the club’s player of the year award.
It was reported in July that Tottenham were keen on the shot-stopper as a potential long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris between the sticks (Daily Mail).
However, despite Bournemouth’s relegation, they are seemingly keen on retaining a decent price for their first-choice keeper. Sheffield United reportedly already tested the relegated club’s resolve with a £15m bid this summer, although it was quickly turned down.
This comes after current Cherries boss, Jason Tindall, claimed he had been given assurances that there would not be a Bournemouth firesale this summer (Yorkshire Examiner).
Spurs Web Opinion:
Tottenham simply do not need to waste money on a new keeper. Vorm has left the club, with Gazzaniga surely retaining his spot as the second choice. Hugo Lloris can remain the number one for years to come if he keeps up the incredible form he has shown of late. Mourinho football has less emphasis on Lloris playing out from the back, which has always been his weakest point.
