According to an update courtesy of journalist Nicolo Schira, Fulham are ‘really interested’ in signing Spurs keeper Paulo Gazzaniga after the arrival of free agent Joe Hart – with the 6ft 4 shot stopper now in danger of losing his place in the side under Jose Mourinho.
Gazzaniga, who filled in intermittently for captain Hugo Lloris last season following the Frenchman’s injury, managing just two clean sheets in 18 Premier League starts for the club (Transfermarkt), could now lose his place after Daniel Levy snapped up Hart on a free transfer.
Hart, joining the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Matt Doherty as Spurs’ new summer acquisitions, becomes part of the Mourinho rebuild which supporters will hope propels their side to a Champions League qualification push.
Should Spurs sell Gazzaniga?
Yes, get the deal done
However, as new members join the squad ahead of a first season in charge for the ‘special one’, surplus-to-requirement figures could be more in danger than ever of being shown the exit door – with Gazzaniga potentially one of them.
As a result, the shot-stopper is now enticing interest from Fulham following their promotion to the top flight, with manager Scott Parker now allegedly looking to strengthen with the signing of a proven top flight keeper.
Despite the Argentine’s mixed form last season, Mourinho has showered praise on Gazzaniga in the past, specifically after a 2-1 victory over Wolves in late 2019 when the boss compared him to his father whilst also dubbing him “magic hands” (BeSoccer).
Whether or not Spurs end up selling Gazzaniga remains to be seen, but his future certainly looks more uncertain with Hart thrown into the mix.
