Spurs are tracking Bulgarian keeper Nikolay Mihaylov as a replacement for Brazilian goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes according to the Daily Mirror.
Gomes has stated his desire to leave the club since he has lost his place to Brad Friedal and Tottenham Manager Harry Redknapp has conceded that a move else looks likely come Janauary. “He’s not happy and he’s eyeing a January move. If the chance comes for him to play elsewhere, I’m sure he’ll take it.”
Mihaylov is currently playing his football with Dutch side FC Twente after signing for €1.8m from Liverpool back in February 2010. The Bulgarian 23-year-old had a brief spell at Anfield, but due to work permit problems, the transfer hit a barrier.
It wouldn’t be the first time Mihaylov has played at White Hart Lane, he produced a number of stunning saves including a penalty save from Van Der Vaart during their 4-1 defeat in the Champions League last season against Tottenham.
Since signing for Twente, the Bulgarian international has shone in confidence and is building a sturdy reputation. He has the potential to become a top goalkeeper with a few clubs watching his development.
Mihaylov has gone on record in expressing his desire to return back to the Anfield based club if the chance came along, so Tottenham would have to fight off difficult competition to acquire his services.
Here is a slight preview what Tottenham fans could be witnessing at the Lane in the future: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJNJMfXEb5Y
