Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a move for Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini, as their search for a goalkeeper intensifies [Calcio Mercato via The Boot Room].
The Lowdown: Tottenham get busy ahead of 2021/22
Moving towards 2021/22, many onlookers up and down the country will be excited to see how newly appointed boss Nuno Espirito Santo intends to bring success to North London.
In terms of recruitment, things are looking promising after Spurs agreed personal terms with Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu.
Could they be set to delve deep into negotiations with a familiar face within English football following recent developments?
Would Gollini be a good signing for Spurs?
The Latest: Spurs eye up move for ex-Villa keeper
Tottenham are said to be eyeing up a move for ex-Aston Villa goalkeeper Gollini [The Boot Room].
In need of reinforcements between the sticks, the Lilywhites are looking to secure some positional clarity this summer, with Hugo Lloris reaching the twilight years of his career.
Everton, Inter Milan, Lazio, AC Milan and Roma are all also rumoured to be monitoring the Italian’s situation [The Boot Room].
The Verdict: Gollini would be a solid signing
Any move for the 6 foot 4 in colossus would be an astute one by the Tottenham Hotspur hierarchy.
In 2020/21, he enjoyed a successful season at the heart of the Atalanta backline, registering 13 clean sheets in 32 appearances for the Serie A outfit [Transfermarkt], on route to securing Champions League qualification.
His age would also come as a positive, as at 26 years of age he could be number one for some time to come at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, due to the shelf-life of the modern goalkeeper.
Looking ahead, Spurs should look to tie up a deal for the Italy cap as soon as possible if he is indeed the man Nuno wants to challenge Lloris.
In other news, Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks with a 6ft 6in defender.
