Tottenham have strong interest in £20m World Cup star, background checks underway

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing the Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez at the end of the season.

A report from Football Insider claims that Tottenham have a strong interest in the 30-year-old Argentine international who excelled during the World Cup in Qatar.

Martinez was undoubtedly the best keeper in the tournament and he helped his country win the World Cup with his heroics in the final.

The 30-year-old is undoubtedly one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and he could prove to be a sensational acquisition for Tottenham if they managed to pull off his signature. He is at the peak of his career and he could improve Spurs significantly.

Spurs have been monitoring him closely since his £20 million move to Villa and background checks are now underway to determine his character and lifestyle ahead of a potential move.

Apparently, the player is not on good terms with manager Unai Emery and he could leave the West Midlands club at the end of this season.

Tottenham need to replace Hugo Lloris as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper. The 36-year-old has regressed significantly and his errors have cost the side valuable points.

Martinez would be a tremendous upgrade on the French international and Tottenham must do everything in their power to get the deal across the line.

The opportunity to play for a top Premier League club like Tottenham will be an attractive option for the Argentine international and he is likely to be tempted if the Londoners come calling.
