A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have given their thoughts on the Daily Mail report claiming Jose Mourinho has set his sights on Aaron Ramsdale if Bournemouth go down.
From a personal perspective, Ramsdale has enjoyed a superb maiden season in the Cherries first team, making 36 appearances in the Premier League.
His heroics have helped Eddie Howe’s side take their relegation battle to the final day.
Spurs, meanwhile, are said to be after a goalkeeper to add competition to current first-choice Hugo Lloris.
The Daily Mail believes that, should Bournemouth end up dropping into the Championship, they will look to swoop for the talented 22-year-old.
Watford’s Ben Foster and Fulham’s Marcus Bettinelli are also said to be of interest.
Ramsdale’s stats may not make for great reading – 36 played, 61 conceded, five clean sheets – but given how poor Bournemouth have been all season, they would probably have already been relegated by now were it not for his efforts.
At just 22 years of age, has huge potential to develop and progress much further, particularly given goalkeepers tend not to peak until their late twenties, and with a reported weekly salary of just £3,000-a-week (Spotrac), he won’t break the bank.
Some Tottenham fans seem pleased with the speculation, judging by the below social media reaction:
Ramsdale would be a great signing as an understudy for lloris. Not sure he would be prepared to take on that role tho

Doesn’t Hugo’s contract expires in the end of the 21/22 season?
Otherwise Ramsdale is a solid keeper
