Swedish outfit Degerfors are eyeing up a move for Tottenham goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman, according to Fotboll Direkt.
The stopper has been demoted to the third choice recently. Boss Nuno Espirito Santo has added Pierluigi Gollini to his goalkeeping ranks, with Hugo Lloris established as the number one.
Whiteman has made just one first-team appearance for Tottenham. That came last season during the Europa League campaign.
He has been a regular in the club’s under-23 and under-18 ranks having risen through the club’s youth academy.
Whiteman is now 22 and the time has come where he will need to be playing regular football. At this stage, nobody really knows what he’s capable of in men’s football and now Degerfors are keen to pounce.
The Swedish league is in full swing. The club chasing Whiteman have started pretty poorly and sit 12th in a division of 16 teams.
Ismael Diawara is set to leave for Malmo and that leaves Degerfors in the market for a replacement.
It is unsure from the report whether the deal will be on loan or whether it will be a permanent exit from Tottenham for Whiteman.
The custodian is out of contract during the summer of 2022. As a result, if he does impress, he could throw himself into the shop window ahead of next season when he will become a free agent.
