According to a report by Gazzetta dello Sport, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Thomas Strakosha.
The SS Lazio shot-stopper is thought to be seen as a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris and it is believed he could be available for a fee of around €25million (£22.2m).
The current Spurs ‘keeper has become a little unreliable and erratic with his performances recently, which has led to questions regarding his future with us, whilst he has also been linked with a move back to his homeland with Paris Saint-Germain in some sections of the media (AS).
With him approaching the latter stages of his career – and despite goalkeepers being like a fine wine in the sense that they tend to get better with age – thinking about replacing the 32-year-old soon is not such a bad decision.
Although Strakosha would not necessarily be a bad addition for Spurs to make, as he kept 10 clean sheets in 35 Serie A matches last season (Transfermarkt), it would seem a number of our fans already feel we have the ideal man to take over from Lloris and would prefer to see him in between the sticks at the New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium instead of the Albania international.
Plenty of supporters were calling for Paulo Gazzaniga to be the France World Cup winner’s replacement when he does decide to leave the club as they felt he was more than ready.
One fan commented that he would rather see the Argentine be promoted to the number one spot, whilst many others could not understand why the club would be looking at another keeper with the 27-year-old in the ranks. Here are some of their reactions…
Nah we already got that in Gazzinaiga

I’d rather see Paolo Gazzaniga promoted to the No1 keeper. I think he’s deserved it

Why? Gazzaniga deserves a proper chance when Lloris goes, and he could still be here for a few seasons
