Former Tottenham captain Graham Roberts reckons Hugo Lloris’ number one spot could come under threat from Pierluigi Gollini.
The Frenchman has been Spurs’ first-choice goalkeeper for the best part of his nine years in north London.
Should Tottenham sell Winks?
However, the club have never quite had an adequate back-up, with neither Michel Vorm nor Joe Hart putting Lloris under a considerable amount of pressure, even when mistakes were made.
But that could change following the season-long loan addition of Gollini, who’s been Atalanta’s number one for the previous three years and has played in the Champions League in the last two.
“I think he will put Lloris under a little bit of pressure.”
Gollini looked confident and assured during his debut against Chelsea in pre-season, making some impressive saves.
However, he’s been signed to play in the UEFA Conference League and domestic cups, which should leave him in good stead for when Lloris moves on and he becomes first-choice in 2022-2023.
