Tottenham Hotspur’s on-loan goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini is bring in interest ahead of the summer season transfer window.
What’s the talk?
That’s according to a report by Italian publication Corriere della Sera (through LazioNews24), who declare that, with Maurizio Sarri seeking to move Thomas Strakosha on this summer season, Lazio will be in the market for a brand-new first-choice shot-stopper– with Gollini believed to be the club’s primary target.
The report goes on to state that Tottenham look unlikely to exercise their EUR13m (₤ 11m) option to sign the 26-year-old on a long-term basis, suggesting the Italy international is probably in line for a summer return to his parent club Atalanta– who are believed to be willing to part with the ‘keeper for a figure in the area of EUR10m (₤ 8m).
Should Spurs active their option to purchase Gollini?
Vote No Vote Conte should axe Gollini While Gollini never ever appeared extremely most likely to take over Hugo Lloris as Tottenham’s number one upon his move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last summer season, thinking about just how infrequently the Italian has actually featured for Spurs, in addition to how bad the shot-stopper has been when he has played, Fabio Paratici’s choice to bring the ₤ 25k-per-week goalkeeper to north London does appear to have been a rather unusual one.
Indeed, over his four looks in the Europa Conference League this season, the ₤ 12.5m-rated ‘keeper was in rather disastrous form for Spurs, failing to keep a clean sheet versus the likes of Stade Rennais, NS Mura and Vitesse, along with shipping a total of six objectives and making approximately simply 1.3 conserves– with a success rate of a simple 45%– per game.
These returns saw the player who Spurs insider John Wenham called “frustrating” and “bad“ average a rather stunning SofaScore match rating of just 6.25— ranking him as Conte’s second-worst entertainer in the competitors.
As such, it would certainly appear a really smart move for the 52-year-old Italian to prevent activating the goalkeeper’s alternative to purchase provision this summer season and instead send him back to Serie A, as it is clear for all to see that Gollini has cost Spurs very much this season.
