Several of us had suspected that Spurs’ transfer dealings involving goalkeepers weren’t quite over and there are rumours today linking two separate stoppers to the club.
Polish International Artur Boruc spent 5 years at Celtic before heading to Serie A with Fiorentina. The keeper was originally battling with Sebastien Frey for the number one shirt but stepped in after Frey’s injury and made over 20 appearances.
Elsewhere, there’s a link with Marseille’s Steve Mandanda who is 26 and is a firm first choice for his club. He is also their captain and has 14 French caps so it’s maybe no surprise that there’s a €20m price tag on his head.
To be fair, these seem to be isolated stories so maybe there’s no substance in them at all but it’s interesting to see goalkeepers being linked once again. When Brad Friedel signed, Harry Redknapp suggested there was a three way fight for the number one jersey but maybe Heurelho Gomes could yet be excluded from that equation.
