However, if he impresses Nuno Espirito Santo enough, or plays enough games in the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Europa Conference League, then the deal will become a permanent one for around £13 million.
The reaction from supporters has generally been good, as many fans view him as a Champions League level goalkeeper due to his experience with Atalanta, and the idea that he will be the successor to Hugo Lloris who will most likely leave the club next Summer with his contract set to expire.
One fan wrote: “First of many incomings hopefully.”

Meanwhile one fan was quick to get too carried away, saying: “We’re actually going to win the quadruple next season.”

Fans were also very happy to see that Gollini is very excited to work with club captain Hugo Lloris, with one supporter saying: “Oozes class, respect and sauce, can’t ask for much more than that.”

Gollini released a charity rap song a couple of years ago, and it didn’t take long for Spurs fans to dig it out and find it – and many fans are desperate to see a live performance in front of his new teammates, with one saying: “We’re going to need a video of his initiation whenever it happens.”

Meanwhile, people were also quick to remind Spurs fans of his poor spell at Aston Villa in the Championship, with journalist Luke Hatfield writing: “Such an erratic goalkeeper during his time at Villa, but always felt there was potential in Gollini. Keen to see if he makes an impact in north London.”

Exciting are times are definitely on the horizon for Spurs, and the signings will continue to arrive in numbers over the next few weeks, with a deal for Sevilla’s Bryan Gil already agreed and fees being negotiated currently for Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu and Atalanta’s Cristian Romero.
