Tottenham Hotspur have made some changes in regards to their goalkeepers at the club as Michel Vorm left the club, whilst former Premier League winner Joe Hart signed, and this has left many to speculate on the future of Paulo Gazzaniga.
According to The Telegraph, Fulham manager Scott Parker is keen on the goalkeeper and is preparing a move to sign the Argentinian.
Parker is willing to make Gazzaniga the number one goalkeeper at the newly promoted side ahead of Marek Rodak, and this could tempt him away from North London.
Since signing for Spurs from Southampton back in 2017, the 28 year-old has made 37 appearances, keeping ten clean sheets and conceding 43 goals, per Transfermarkt.
Mauricio Pochettino was the manager at the time of his arrival and he heaped praise on him in the past. Indeed, back in November 2017 he said of his compatriot: “I think it was fantastic. His debut at Wembley and I think he deserved a lot of praise. He was very calm. He made a few amazing saves. For me he was fantastic,” (Football.London).
He has never held the number one spot though, and if he has been drafted in to play, it is normally due to a Hugo Lloris injury, and therefore it might be good for the player to leave Tottenham.
Jose Mourinho clearly made a statement when he signed Joe Hart which showed that he felt he needed better cover for Lloris, and if Spurs can get some money for Gazzaniga, then a transfer to Fulham might be best for all involved – he is currently valued at £2.52m
If Mourinho does need a third goalkeeper, then a player from the academy could be an easy option here as it is very unlikely a third goalkeeper will be called upon to play and with the former Saints goalkeeper nearing his 30’s, he probably will want to be playing consistently and Fulham are offering him that at a high level.
