Replacing Lloris with Donnarumma would be just so Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham are yet to make a single move in the transfer window thus far.

Spurs ended the season in third, securing Champions League football at their new home next season. Mauricio Pochettino has not felt the need to spend in the window thus far and has not made a signing this summer. Instead, Tottenham have secured long-term contracts for Harry Kane, Heung Min-Son, Harry Winks and Davinson Sanchez. Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen are also set to commit their future to the club.

Despite Pochettino being happy with his squad, he may be forced into signing a goalkeeper if captain Hugo Lloris leaves the club. After Alisson Becker joined Liverpool, Real Madrid have reportedly turned their attention to the Frenchman to replace Keylor Navas according to reports. Should he depart, Tottenham will need a replacement quickly with less than two weeks remaining in the transfer window.

The ideal replacement would be AC Milan wonderkid – Gianluigi Donnarumma. Valued at £36m by Transfermarkt, the Italian has emerged as one of the world’s best goalkeepers after breaking into the Milan first-team as a 16-year-old. He made 38 appearances in the Serie A last season, keeping 12 clean sheets.

Landing Donnarumma would be a huge statement of intent to their Premier League rivals. Under Pochettino’s tutelage, he would become an even better goalkeeper than he already is. At just 19-years-old, Spurs wouldn’t need to worry about signing a goalkeeper for the next decade.

Losing Lloris would be a huge blow but securing Donnarumma’s signature would help Tottenham fans quickly forget about the World Cup winner.
