New Tottenham goalkeeper: Levy pounces as top LaLiga side agree ‘strategic sale’ of €100m-rated elite star

Tottenham are apparently closing in on a deal for Hugo Lloris’ replacement, with rumours in Spain claiming a low-cost deal for one of LaLiga’s greatest shot-stoppers was close to being made.

Lloris has been a staple in Tottenham’s goal for the past 11 seasons, and the World Cup winner is widely considered as one of the club’s finest signings.

However, with errors creeping into his game during the previous season, Lloris was deposed as No. 1 by Fraser Forster.

As a result, it’s been widely rumoured for months that Tottenham will be looking for a new goalkeeper this summer.

Jordan Pickford, Illan Meslier, and Andre Onana are just a few of the names that have been linked as a result of that search. Indeed, this report investigated all 20 goalkeepers rumored to be on their way to N7.

However, in recent weeks, the hunt appears to have narrowed in on one specific candidate: Brentford’s David Raya.

The Spanish goalkeeper appears to be on his way out of Brentford Community Stadium this summer. His current contract expires in a year, and the Bees are unwilling to lose the asset for free.

As a result, conversations about a possible deal have been underway. Brentford are seeking for a sum of approximately £40 million for the 27-year-old.

According to rumours in Spain, Spurs are willing to change their goals. Valencia has also informed a number of teams of their intention to sell Giorgi Mamardashvili, according to Plaza Deportiva.

Levy is ready to name Mamardashvili as Tottenham’s new goalie.
Last season, the LaLiga club survived relegation by the slimmest of margins. And, with their financial woes publicly documented, they’re eager to sell at least one valued possession to alleviate their financial burden.

Valencia is reportedly holding off on bringing in new players until at least one large-money deal is completed.

And this is when Mamardashvili enters the picture.

Despite Los Che’s problems, the Georgian goalie had a stellar personal season. The 22-year-old, regarded as one of LaLiga’s best shot-stoppers, participated in 42 matches across all competitions.

Valencia regards him so highly that they have included a €100 million departure clause in his contract. However, given their situation, they are willing to sanction his’strategic sale’ at a reduced amount.

According to the article, Levy and Tottenham have been made aware of their willingness to sell. To that end, negotiations for a sale of €20m – €25m (£17.1m – £21.45m) are expected to begin soon.

To that aim, Levy wants to close the purchase as soon as possible. According to the report, contact has already been made between the north London giants and the players’ representation.

The article concludes that those in power at Valencia wish to pay more for Mamardashvili. However, because of their urgency to sell, they do not enter the negotiations in a strong bargaining position. As a result, Tottenham are perfectly prepared to capitalize.
