Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Brentford goalkeeper David Raya.
The 27-year-old Spanish international has been a key player for Brentford since their promotion to the Premier League and his performances have attracted the attention of the north London club.
Tottenham are hoping to sign a quality goalkeeper at the end of the season and they want the 27-year-old to replace Hugo Lloris in the starting lineup next season.
The 36-year-old French goalkeeper has regressed massively and he is a shadow of his former self.
His error-prone performances have cost Tottenham dearly this season and they will want to replace him as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper.
Raya is entering his peak years and he has proven his quality in the Premier League. He could prove to be a superb acquisition for Tottenham and he would sort out their goal keeping position for the foreseeable future.
The report from Football Insider claims that Raya is a top target for Tottenham and he will cost around £30 million.
Tottenham certainly have the financial resources to pay the reported asking price for him and it remains to be seen whether they can get a deal across the line in the coming months.
As for the 27-year-old, a move to Tottenham would be a major step up in his career and it could help him showcase his qualities on a bigger platform. On top of that, if Spurs manage to secure Champions League qualification, they would be an even more attractive destination for the player.
