Report: Spurs in talks with 6ft 4in Serie A ace, valued at £17m
Spurs are reportedly in negotiations with Pierluigi Gollini, according to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website.
Tottenham‘s main goalkeepers, Hugo Lloris and Joe Hart, are only contracted to the club until 2022.
And it looks as though Spurs director Fabio Paratici is looking to Serie A to bolster his goalkeeping ranks.
Gianluca Di Marzio’s website reports that Tottenham are in discussions with Atalanta and Gollini over a potential loan-to-buy move.
On Thursday, Calciomercato reported that Spurs were one of three Premier League clubs that had made approaches for Gollini.
As well as Spurs, Everton and Wolves reportedly made bids for the 26-year-old.
The Italian outlet also claimed that Gollini has a 20m euro (£17m) price tag.
Spurs reportedly moving for goalkeeper with English football experience
Gollini has experience in English football, having spent time at Manchester United’s academy and also playing for Aston Villa.
The 6ft 4in stopper’s senior breakthrough came for Hellas Verona, who he joined from the Red Devils in 2014.
Gollini then moved to Villa in 2016 but struggled at B6 and went out on loan to Atalanta the following year.
He shone for the Bergamo outfit and promptly joined permanently in 2018, making 112 competitive appearances to date.
Gollini shared the gloves with Marco Sportiello last season, but still made 32 competitive appearances in all competitions.
