Tottenham: Spurs considering David Raya move

Tottenham: Spurs considering David Raya move - Premier League News

Tottenham are considering a move for Brentford goalkeeper David Raya, according to The Times.

The Lowdown: 31 goals conceded

Spurs have struggled at the back this season, conceding 31 times in the Premier League, the most out of the top 12 sides in the division.

Antonio Conte has mainly used Hugo Lloris, with the Frenchman letting in four second-half goals against Manchester City on Thursday.

He was criticised by Jamie Carragher for his display at the Etihad, and it looks as if north London officials may have an eye on replacing the 36-year-old.

The Latest: Raya interest

The Times shared a transfer update on Friday, claiming that Spurs are ‘weighing up a move’ for Raya. The report states that Tottenham have already contacted Brentford about the goalkeeper this month but were told he is not for sale.

The Spaniard is into the final 18 months of his contract, though, and Spurs are ‘considering testing Brentford’s resolve’.

The Verdict: Wise move

Replacing Lloris with Raya could prove to be a wise move, both in the short and long run. Raya has gone from strength to strength with the Bees and has been one of Brentford’s top performers this season, as per WhoScored,

He appears to be at the top of his game with a career-high €22m Transfermarkt valuation and has made more saves than any other goalkeeper so far this season (81).

Lloris on the other hand has been Spurs’ 11th-best performer this season, as per WhoScored and has made 24 fewer saves than Raya (57), so a transfer could be a smart piece of business.
