Tottenham Hotspur: First summer signing is imminent

Tottenham Hotspur: First summer signing is imminent -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster is set to undergo a medical at Tottenham Hotspur this week, claims Daily Telegraph journalist Mike McGrath.

The Lowdown: Forster’s Saints contract

Both Alex McCarthy and Forster headed into last summer with just 12 months left on their contracts at St Mary’s.

The former agreed fresh terms with the club, agreeing to a new three-year deal, but the latter was not offered a new contract and will now be allowed to sign somewhere else for zero transfer cost.

The Athletic’s Dan Sheldon previously reported that Southampton will sit the keeper down and inform him that he is free to leave. The 34-year-old is set to be out of contract officially at the end of June after spending seven seasons at the south-coast club.

The Latest: Spurs closing in

According to Daily Telegraph journalist Mike McGrath, sharing news smack bang in the middle of north London’s rush hour on Monday, Forster is set to undergo a medical at Spurs this week ahead of a summer move.

Taking to Twitter, McGrath shared:

“Fraser Forster set for #THFC medical this week with deal for England goalkeeper as a free agent to be closed in the coming days, after Southampton departure #Spurs #SaintsFC.”

The Verdict: Great signing for Conte

With Lilywhites boss Antonio Conte set on signing a new back-up goalkeeper to replace Pierluigi Gollini, the 34-year-old’s arrival will provide excellent experience as a no.2 and also serve to help solve the homegrown player issue at N17.

With 168 appearances tallied in the Scottish Premiership and a further 133 games under his Premier League belt, Forster, dubbed ‘ridiculous’ for ‘one of the best goalkeeping performances’ this season vs Arsenal by journalist Josh Bunting, will be able to come in and be relied upon to do a solid job with his wealth of experience.

On a free transfer, we feel this will be a great and shrewd signing for Tottenham.
