Paulo Gazzaniga surely won’t wait forever in Tottenham shadows

Paulo Gazzaniga may have only featured seven times for Tottenham since he joined in the summer of 2017, but in that time he’s proven he can be a brilliant goalkeeper.

The 26-year-old made just one senior appearance during his first campaign, where he impressed with a string of saves in a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

He’s enjoyed much more success at Spurs so far this campaign by playing another six times and he was on form for the memorable 2-0 away victory against Arsenal on Wednesday night.

Gazzaniga kept a rare clean sheet for Spurs at the Emirates Stadium, as his side progressed to the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

The Argentinian shot-stopper is proving his value every time he steps out on the pitch and is a superb back-up option to captain Hugo Lloris.

But surely Gazzaniga won’t want to wait in the shadows for much longer?

Gazzaniga is still unbeaten for Spurs during his brief seven games, but has shown he’s got all the qualities of an experienced goalkeeper and he knows his game well.

His distribution was top notch against Arsenal and he pulled of some great reaction saves too.

Gazzaniga will be improving every day from training alongside World Cup winner Lloris and some may even feel he can overtake him.

But with Lloris’ position firmly fixed for the foreseeable future, Spurs’ number two shouldn’t be content with sitting on the bench most weeks given his ability.

The £20,000-a-week ace (Spotrac) would surely have a long queue of teams interested if he were to become available and it will be interning to see what his future holds.
