Transfer insider Dean Jones believes Spurs will be looking to sign either Brentford’s David Raya or Inter Milan’s Andre Onana as they look to bring in a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris.
Lloris has endured a difficult season at Spurs, making several unforced errors that directly led to goals. In addition, he suffered two injuries this year, with his latest during their defeat to Newcastle United effectively ending his season.
With only one year remaining on his contract, speculation is rife that Lloris could be on his way out of Tottenham this summer. The club is said to be open to selling him and actively seeking a successor.
Among those linked with a move to Spurs include David Raya and Onana.
Two names linked with a move to Spurs are David Raya and Andre Onana. Raya’s contract with Brentford expires in 2024, and according to Fabrizio Romano, he has no plans to sign a new deal with the club. The Telegraph also reported that Raya is a strong candidate to join Tottenham.
Meanwhile Onana is also linked with a move to Spurs but their London rivals Chelsea and Manchester United are also said to be in the race for him.
Transfer Insider Dean Jones has discussed the transfer situation of the aforementioned duo in the latest episode of Chasing Green Arrows. he claimed that if Spurs manage to sign Onana, Raya will go to one of the other two clubs and likewise the other way round.
“I mean, at the moment the links are Chelsea, Tottenham and Man United.
“I mean, I was speaking to someone today about this and we were trying to figure out both what we’d heard and where we thought he [Raya] might go.
“And we were like, basically what we think is going to happen here is Onana is wanted by all these teams too – mainly to be fair, Tottenham and Chelsea because [David] De Gea will probably end up staying.
“So it’s like, whoever gets Onana, Raya ends up going to the other club.”
While Onana might be seen as a high-profile signing, David Raya has been brilliant for Brentford as well which has made him attractive prospect. It will be interesting too see how this plays out in the summer.
