Tottenham Hotspur not looking to sign Wojciech Szczesny

Tottenham Hotspur not looking to sign Wojciech Szczesny -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly not looking to secure a transfer deal for Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. 

The Lowdown: Spurs’ recent links with Szczesny

The 32-year-old is set to represent Poland in the World Cup in Qatar as domestic football takes a break. Earlier this month, it was reported that Spurs were interested in signing the shot-stopper who is currently representing Poland at the World Cup.

However, it appears as though a new report has suggested otherwise, with other goalkeepers in the frame to join Antonio Conte’s side.

The Latest: Spurs snub chance to sign Szczesny

According to a recent report from 90min, despite being offered the chance to sign Szczesny by intermediaries, Tottenham are not actively looking to sign him as a potential replacement for Hugo Lloris.

 

The report also added that Juventus aren’t desperate to sell him their shot-stopper but Spurs have not completely shut the door on the idea of signing him.

The Verdict: Look elsewhere?

With 190 appearances for the Italian club under his belt, the £200k-per-week goalkeeper has kept 76 clean sheets in the process.

Across the nine Serie A games he’s played in this season, the Polish international has faced 21 shots on target and saved 18 of them, leaving him with the second-highest save percentage (85.7%) in the league.

Having made a combined total of 209 appearances for Arsenal and Brentford, keeping 82 clean sheets along the way, the goalkeeper has enough experience of English football to be a suitable option for Conte.

Hailed by journalist Carlo Garganese for an “outrageous” penalty save he made for Juventus back in March, Szczesny certainly has the talent to be considered a top goalkeeper at the age of 32.

However, if Spurs are looking to bring in a new goalkeeper to replace Lloris, they may be better off looking to bring in a younger shot-stopper that has more time and space to be a longer-term figure at the club.
