According to reliable journalist David Ornstein of The Athletic, a big Tottenham Hotspur transfer update has come to light involving Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster.
The Lowdown: Spurs enter mix…
For a while, it was reliably believed that Spurs were in pole position to sign West Bromwich Albion ace Sam Johnstone on a Bosman deal, with Antonio Conte aiming to bring in a backup option to Hugo Lloris.
The Englishman, who could also solve Spurs’ homegrown quota issue, was widely tipped to make the move to north London after his Albion contract expires in June.
However, a twist then emerged, with talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook first claiming that Forster had become a target for Lilywhites transfer chief Fabio Paratici.
Ornstein now has a significant update on the situation, as per The Athletic.
The Latest: Ornstein shares big Forster update…
Ornstein added that the 34-year-old has already said ‘goodbye’ to his team-mates at St Mary’s as Tottenham seek to finalise the Bosman move.
The Verdict: Big news…
A move for Forster potentially being finalised this week comes as big news, with Conte now aiming to solve his goalkeeping number two dilemma once and for all.
As a temporary fix behind Lloris, the veteran’s possible arrival from the south coast will come as a boost for Conte ahead of his first full campaign in charge at Tottenham.
