Report: Fulham prepare move for Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga

Newly-promoted Premier League side Fulham are reportedly interested in signing Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

According to the Telegraph, the Spurs shot-stopper has emerged as a target for London rivals Fulham, who are preparing for life back in the top-flight.

The report explains that Scott Parker’s side are willing to offer the Argentine the number one jersey at Craven Cottage and they are looking to add players with Premier League experience to their squad.

Gazzaniga, 28, has been the second-choice option in goal at Spurs behind Hugo Lloris, but he’s got the experience of 43 Premier League games under his belt from his time with them and previously Southampton.

 

Ex-Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino signed him back in 2017 for the north London club and gave him immense credit in the past.

“I think it was fantastic. His debut at Wembley and I think he deserved a lot of praise. He was very calm. He made a few amazing saves. For me he was fantastic,” Pochettino said back in November 2017, as quoted by Football.London.

TBR’s View:

Gazzaniga has proven himself to be a brilliant understudy during his time at Spurs, especially when he stepped in for Lloris for a large spell in the 2019/20 campaign while he was sidelined with a shoulder injury.

Jose Mourinho’s side have signed goalkeeper Joe Hart on a free transfer to provide more cover in that department and he will add to the homegrown quota too, which is why it wouldn’t be a catastrophe if they cashed in on Gazzaniga.

The Spurs shot-stopper would be a top addition for Fulham, who are looking to survive in the upcoming Premier League season and he would be an immediate upgrade on their current options.
