Tottenham will reportedly be on the search for a new goalkeeper next summer when Michel Vorm departs, but they should look no further than their very own Paulo Gazzaniga.
According to the Sun, 34-year-old Vorm will exit Spurs at the end of the season when his current contract expires.
The veteran’s exit will leave a spot open in the squad as the second-choice goalkeeper behind number one Hugo Lloris and the North London club could look in the market for a replacement.
But manager Mauricio Pochettino should bin any proposed transfer search for a new goalkeeper and can put his faith in Gazzaniga to step up to the mark.
The 26-year-old is a rarely-seen player at Spurs and has made just four senior appearances since he joined in 2017.
But he hasn’t put a foot wrong when called upon and there’s already a very strong case to suggest he should be ahead of Vorm in the pecking order this season.
Gazzaniga has made three of his four Spurs appearances this campaign due to injuries in the squad and proved he’s comfortable enough at the top level.
The Argentina shot-stopper has brilliant reflexes and is comfortable on the ball, which is why it makes sense to promote him to Lloris’ understudy over buying a new goalkeeper.
