Report: Tottenham as interested in Leeds star Illan Meslier as anyone

Tottenham Hotspur are as interested in Leeds United goalkeeper Illan Meslier as anyone, according to a report from The Athletic.

The hopes have long been extremely high for the 22-year-old. Meslier has been number one for much of his spell at Elland Road, including during the Whites’ first campaign back in the Premier League.

At his best, Meslier has been an outstanding performer for Leeds. And with that, there is bound to be plenty of interest as his game continues to develop and improve.

Reports have previously suggested that both Manchester United and Spurs have their eye on Meslier. Both clubs have had goalkeepers who have largely been undisputed number ones for a number of years.

Of course, it is hard to see Leeds sanctioning a sale to Manchester United. But Meslier moving to Tottenham could make a lot of sense to many.

Meslier has previously spoken of his admiration of countryman Hugo Lloris. And Lloris is also a fan of the youngster.

It certainly seems that Antonio Conte’s side may be leading the charge to secure his signature at some stage down the line.

The Athletic is now reporting that Tottenham are as keen on Meslier as anyone else in the race.

It is going to be a big ask for any goalkeeper to succeed Lloris in the future. He has been one of the Premier League’s best over the last decade. And he continues to step up when Spurs need him.

Meslier is well on his way to becoming a world-class goalkeeper. He is a ‘really exciting‘ talent with an extremely high ceiling.

He also will not be overawed by stepping up to that next level.
