Tottenham: Spurs interested in Yassine Bounou transfer

Tottenham: Spurs interested in Yassine Bounou transfer - Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Sevilla goalkeeper Yassine Bounou, according to a new report.

The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing goalkeeper

Spurs have continually been linked with several different goalkeepers to replace Hugo Lloris, with the Frenchman’s future at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium now said to be in doubt.

Back in January, it was claimed that Tottenham had set their sights on Everton’s Jordan Pickford, while more recently names such as Jan Oblak and David Raya have been thrown into the mix, but there is reportedly still a chance they go in for an old target.

The Latest: Bounou’s an option

According to a report from AS (via Sport Witness), Spurs made an enquiry about ‘Bono’ in January, but their approach was turned by Sevilla, with manager Jorge Sampaoli deciding he was a crucial player.

However, the report claims that Antonio Conte‘s side are expected to return to the negotiating table in the summer, although they will have to fend off interest from other Premier League clubs, such as Manchester United and West Ham United.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Hailed as a ‘fantastic goalkeeper’ by the media, the 31-year-old is most well-known for his performances with Morocco at the Qatar World Cup, rated by Sofascore as the fourth-best performing player in the squad that made it all the way to the semi-finals.

How much did Spurs pay to sign future legend and fan favourite David Ginola?

The shot-stopper’s finest display came in the round of 16 tie against Spain, saving two penalties in the shoot-out to secure a place in the quarter-finals against all the odds, being dubbed a ‘legend‘ for his performance.

That said, while 31 is not old for a goalkeeper, Spurs should target a more long-term replacement for Lloris, with Pickford fitting the bill at 28-years-old, and he has also recorded a better save percentage than Bounou over the past year.
