Tottenham Hotspur: Goal share Pierluigi Gollini exit update

Tottenham Hotspur: Goal share Pierluigi Gollini exit update -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to Goal, there has been an exit update out of Tottenham Hotspur as some news emerges on loanee goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.

The Lowdown: Gollini will ‘almost certainly leave’…

Reports in the last week heavily tip Tottenham’s second-choice to depart north London and head back to Serie A at the end of this season.

Fabio Paratici and co apparently have a €13 million (£11m) option to buy Gollini but Corriere della Sera’s print edition (via Sport Witness) say this isn’t an option for Spurs due to his lack of playing time.

As such, they now claim he will ‘almost certainly’ leave N17 and return to parent his club Atalanta in June.

Backing this update and sharing news of their own, Goal have brought a development.

The Latest: Gollini talks held…

According to their information, Serie A giants Lazio have already moved for Gollini ahead of the summer – meeting with the player’s agents and the club holding talks in ‘recent days’.

It is believed they are focused ‘above all’ on signing Tottenham’s current shot stopper who Goal also back looks certain to leave.

They claim Gollini is highly unlikely to reach the 20 appearances needed to trigger an obligation-to-buy clause in his deal and add that Spurs aren’t willing to exercise another option to buy him outright.

The Verdict: Unfortunate…

While Spurs supporters won’t be losing sleep over Gollini’s exit due to his lack of playing time, it is unfortunate that the Italian has spent so much of this season on fringes.

The former Aston Villa man hasn’t been handed many opportunities to prove himself by Antonio Conte despite his terrific form at Atalanta over the past few seasons.

Serie A football journalist Carlo Garganese lauded Gollini as a ‘big’ and ‘imposing’ shot stopper at the Gewiss Stadium but Tottenham’s faithful have hardly got to capture a glimpse of those labels.

Tottenham defender Eric Dier also called the 26-year-old ‘amazing‘ whilst praising his energy in Hotspur Way training, leaving some to maybe wonder why Conte has never given his compatriot the opportunity to impress more regularly.
