Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a move for the Southampton goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu at the end of the season.
The 21-year-old has impressed for the Saints despite their relegation this season. It has been a dismal campaign for Southampton and they have now been relegated to the Championship. A number of key players could look to move on in the summer including Bazunu.
The Republic of Ireland goalkeeper is a prodigious talent with a big future ahead of him and he will probably be looking to stay in the top flight. According to Football Insider, Tottenham are now prepared to invest in rising stars and they are looking to provide him with an exit route this summer.
Southampton signed the player for a fee of around £12 million last summer and it remains to be seen whether Tottenham can agree on a reasonable fee for him.
It is no secret that Tottenham will have to sign a quality goalkeeper in the summer. Club legend Hugo Lloris has been quite error-prone this season and his performances have not been up to the mark.
The north London giants will have to replace him as their first-choice goalkeeper in the summer and Bazunu would be a solid, long-term investment. The 21-year-old is quite young and he is likely to improve with coaching and experience. He has the potential to develop into a top-class Premier League goalkeeper.
The opportunity to join a club like Tottenham will be an attractive option for him and it remains to be seen whether the two clubs can come to an agreement now.
