Tottenham Transfer News: Hugo Lloris nightmare prompts club to consider Raya bid

Tottenham are on the lookout for a replacement for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and could be ready to test Brentford’s resolve over David Raya.

Raya has cropped up on the Spurs radar once again in recent weeks. 90Min reported that Raya was among a number of goalkeepers that Spurs were considering. And after yet another mistake against Man City last night, Spurs boss Antonio Conte might well move quicker than expected for a new stopper.

And according to a report from The Times, Tottenham are the club showing the strongest interest in signing Raya ahead of Ajax, and could be ready to bid for him this month.

The Times writes how Spurs have already asked about Raya and been told he’s not for sale. However, Spurs are bouyed by the fact Raya is into the final 18 months of his contract. And with that, it’s claimed they could see how much Brentford really want to keep him.

Lloris is enduring a nightmare campaign and has made consistent mistakes. Despite retiring from the French national team, his form is suffering at Spurs. Currently, Lloris is safe as he’s captain and only has Fraser Forster pushing him.

The signing of someone like Raya, though, could change all that.

TBR’s View: Raya would be brilliant for Tottenham

Lauded for his ‘incredible‘ passing by Jurgen Klopp, there is a reason why David Raya is one of the best in the business right now.

He very much fits everything a modern day goalkeeper needs. Good on the ball, quick in terms of reactions for shot stopping, and he commands his box well. Brentford dropped on really signing him and it’s obvious why they want to keep him.

For Raya, Spurs qualifying for Europe might be key. They’ll also be able to pay more than Brentford. But under Thomas Frank the Bees are going places. Spurs, meanwhile, are enduring a rocky time of things under Conte.
