Fabrizio Romano Updates Tottenham’s Interest in David Raya

    Tottenham Hotspur is set to determine their next goalkeeper once they secure a director of football, according to renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano. While Hugo Lloris’ contract with the club runs until 2024, recent reports have indicated that the Spurs captain may depart this summer.

    Various sources, including the Evening Standard, have suggested Lloris could be on his way out of Tottenham. The Athletic has further revealed that the club is interested in acquiring a goalkeeper with strong ball-playing abilities, with David Raya emerging as a top contender.

    Although Tottenham would prefer Lloris to remain for the upcoming season, the Frenchman is reluctant to play second fiddle and has received several offers, including a lucrative one from Saudi Arabia. Romano now joins other journalists in predicting that the 36-year-old’s time at Tottenham will conclude this summer.

    Romano has identified Raya as one of the potential targets on Tottenham’s goalkeeper wishlist. However, the final decision on who to pursue will only be made once a sporting director is appointed. Tottenham faces two options: signing a young goalkeeper like Gavin Bazunu, who could gradually assume the number-one role in Lloris’ absence next season, or opting for an experienced choice like Raya, which would likely lead to the departure of their current captain.

    Ultimately, the responsibility of this decision rests with the new head coach and the yet-to-be-appointed sporting director.
