Thomas Frank has benefited much from the 27-year-old.David Raya, a great player for Brentford, is reportedly “ready to make the move” to Tottenham Hotspur, who are “desperate” to sign him.
Who might Tottenham sign this summer?
With the official announcement of the hiring of former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou earlier this week, Spurs have finally put an end to their protracted search for a new manager
The Australian has chosen to join the Premier League team and will start working on July 1. He just won a domestic treble in Canada.
With that crucial work for chairman Daniel Levy completed and aggressive football returning to N17 with Postecoglou’s appointment, focus has turned to the summer transfer market.
According to rumours, James Maddison and Harvey Barnes of Leicester City are two players drawing interest from the north Londoners who are looking to strengthen their attacking and defensive lines.
Hugo Lloris, Tottenham’s long-time goalie, is reportedly also planning to leave this summer, therefore the club is looking for a replacement.Raya, who has been a standout for Brentford in recent seasons, has been identified as a target for Levy and company, with an update on their pursuit published in The Sun.
They claim that Spurs are “desperate” to sign the Spaniard before league rival Man United, but Brenford’s £40 million asking price may present a problem.
After becoming Spurs’ top pick to replace Lloris, Raya is “ready to make the move across London” to Tottenham, but they’re only willing to spend about £20 million.
Due to the club’s attitude on pricing, the 27-year-old’s entourage has even threatened to let him run out his contract so he may go on a free transfer next year. Raya has just one year left on his Bees contract, therefore clubs interested in signing him can do so in 2024 on a Bosman deal.David Raya, who is he?
Raya, according to WhoScored, has played more league minutes than any other player in their team from 2022 to 2023, making him a crucial member of manager Thomas Frank’s team.
The fact that he was among Brentford’s top performers per 90 indicates why Spurs are interested in signing him. Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi described him as a “incredible” keeper, via Jay Harris of The Athletic..
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, commenting on Raya in 2021, also hailed the player’s distribution.
