Tottenham seal €19m goalkeeper deal


Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur have closed an agreement over the signing of a new goalkeeper, it has been revealed.

The subject of reinforcements between the posts has of course taken its place front and centre on the Lilywhite half of north London over the course of the last couple of weeks.

This comes after long-time Spurs no.1 Hugo Lloris announced his intention to seek out pastures new, with a view to next season.

Daniel Levy and co, in turn, have since been scouring the market, for the ideal replacement in new boss Ange Postecoglou’s squad.

Brentford standout David Raya is widely understood to have been identified as the first-choice target on Tottenham’s part, but the hefty price-tag placed upon the head of the Spaniard left the capital outfit with little choice but to turn their attentions elsewhere.

And, if the latest word stemming from the media on Thursday evening is anything to go by, then this shift now appears primed to bear imminent fruit.

As per a report from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham have struck an agreement with their counterparts at Serie A outfit Empoli, over the signing of Guglielmo Vicario.

This comes after the Lilywhites agreed to fork over a not-inconsiderable €19 million for the Italian.

Vicario, in turn, is set to fly out to London later this evening, ahead of putting pen to paper on a contract through the summer of 2028.
