According to Tutto Atalanta, Tottenham Hotspur are considering a proposal to sign Atalanta goalkeeping colossus Pierluigi Gollini after just taking information on the player.
The Lowdown: Spurs in goalkeeper hunt?
The Frenchman, who signed back in 2012, has gone on to make 298 appearances for Spurs in the Premier League alone but has just one year remaining on his current deal (Transfermarkt).
There is no offer of a new deal currently on the table for Lloris and the Lilywhites will have to think about his eventual heir.
The Latest: Spurs about to make Gollini proposal?
As per Tutto Atalanta, Tottenham are ‘considering making a proposal’ to sign Atalanta shot stopper Gollini this summer alongside Premier League rivals Everton.
It is believed that Spurs are weighing up the offer after having ‘taken information’, according to what the website has recently learned.
The Verdict: Spurs swoop?
Over his 25 league appearances for Atalanta last term, the Italian conceded just 26 goals whilst keeping 10 clean sheets – solid numbers for anyone between the sticks (Transfermarkt).
Valued at around €17m (£14.5m) by Transfermarkt, Gollini could come as a bargain alternative to Lloris judging by his age and record last season.
Managing director Fabio Paratici’s connections in Italy could also feasibly help to facilitate any deal, with there being many incentives for Spurs to make a move for the 26-year-old.
