Exclusive: Graham Roberts says Pierluigi Gollini could put pressure on Hugo Lloris -Exclusive

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.

Can you get 10/10 in this impossible Tottenham pub quiz? What is Spurs' lowest ever finish of the Premier League era?

And whilst the Italian has arrived with a view to replacing Lloris once his contract expires next summer, when asked what sort of role he expects Gollini to play, Roberts told The Transfer Tavern:

“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.
