Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga has expressed his admiration for Boca Juniors midfielder Jorman Campuzano in an interview with a radio station in his native Argentina.

Gazzaniga has had somewhat of an inconsistent season in North London. While he received praise from the likes of Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk for his performance at Anfield in October (BBC) he has also been at fault for some high profile mistakes including an error in judgement which saw Chelsea awarded a penalty in their 2-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in December.

There are reports that Mourinho would like to bring a goalkeeper into the club during the summer but the 28-year-old did receive the Spurs boss’ praise earlier in the season when he claimed it hurt him to leave the former Southampton player out of his starting eleven after Lloris’ return to fitness (Football.London).

The goalkeeper has now admitted to Argentine outlet Ataque Radio (as relayed by AS) that he is a big fan of Campuzano, who operates as a defensive midfielder for Boca.

When asked who his favourite player currently was in Argentine football, Gazzaniga said: “I like Campuzano, I think he made a good difference. If Mourinho asks me, ‘bring him along’.”

Having never watched Campuzano play, I have no idea how good he is but Gazzaniga isn’t wrong that we desperately need a defensive midfielder. All joking aside, if it does turn out that we are not able to invest heavily into the squad in the summer given the financial problems owing to the coronavirus shutdown, we might need to be creative in the market and look for potential unknown gems.
