Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a number of goalkeepers in recent months as they look to bring in a quality replacement for Hugo Lloris.
The 36-year-old Frenchman has not been at his best this season and his error-prone performances have cost his side on a number of occasions. Spurs are hoping to replace him as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper and the Juventus ace Wojciech Szczesny has popped up on their radar.
A report from Calciomercatoweb claims that the 32-year-old is a target for Tottenham director Fabio Paratici and the Spurs chief is prepared to offer him a two-year contract worth around €7 million per season. Paratici is a ‘big fan’ of the goalkeeper.
The report further states that Spurs are unlikely to pay more than €18-20 million for the goalkeeper and it remains to be seen whether Juventus are prepared to accept that offer.
Szczesny has played in the Premier League with Arsenal in the past and the opportunity to return to the Premier League could be an attractive option for him.
However, the Polish international goalkeeper is unlikely to get better with time and Tottenham should ideally look to bring in someone with a higher ceiling and room for improvement.
Szczesny is entering the twilight period of his career and he could prove to be an underwhelming addition. Furthermore, his history with Arsenal could make him an unpopular choice with Tottenham fans.
Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with goalkeepers like David Raya and Robert Sanchez from the Premier League as well.
Hugo Lloris has been a key player for the club for a number of years but he is clearly past his peak and he is no longer the player he used to be. He could still help the club with his experience and leadership qualities but he cannot hope to start for them regularly if Tottenham are serious about winning major trophies.
