Some Spurs fans on social media are divided over whether or not it would make sense for the club to cash in on Paulo Gazzaniga this summer.
The Telegraph reported yesterday that Fulham were preparing a move for Gazzaniga with Scott Parker looking to add Premier League experience to his side ahead of their return to the top flight.
It was claimed that the Cottagers were willing to hand the Argentine the opportunity to take the number one jersey to tempt him away from North London.
Some Spurs fans felt that the deal made a lot of sense for all parties, particularly given the club’s recent capture of Joe Hart.
They felt that Gazzaniga’s departure could free up some transfer funds as well as a non-homegrown spot in the squad.
However, others insisted that the Lilywhites would be making a huge mistake by selling the former Saints shot-stopper as he is a much more reliable backup for Hugo Lloris than Hart.
If Spurs let Gazzaniga go (other than on loan) because we now have Hart, then we’ve truly lost the plot.

I love him and he's better and younger than Hart. The match against Liverpool was amazing. Don't think we should sell him. His wages are low and he's very reliable.

People cannot seriously want us to sell Gazzaniga when we have JOE HART as back up. Do I really need to remind people how bad of a goalkeeper Joe Hart has become

Don’t agree with gazzaniga leaving, he is one for the future

Hugo has maybe 3-4 years left, Gazzaniga is the clear backup, Hart is trash, I AM MAD

No surprise, frees up a foreign space and we have Austin as the 3rd keeper allowing Whiteman to go on a much needed loan. More sensible moves by Jose….👍👌

If we sell aurier and gazzaniga for 30 mil combined we have no excuse to not sign max aarons as backup rb https://t.co/ap6JSvQ7Ep

Waste of a non home grown spot in the squad. Average to bad goalkeeper. If we can get £3-4m for him then we’ll take it I expect.

Spurs Web Opinion
Listening to what Jose Mourinho said following Hart’s capture, it is clear that he plans on having all three goalkeepers on board rather than signing the 33-year-old as a replacement for Gazzaniga.
However, given the circumstances of this window, it is certainly possible that we might be tempted to accept a decent offer from Fulham for the Argentine. Even in that case, I believe Jose will want to bring in a replacement.
