The press seem to think that one of the more vulnerable players in the Spurs squad right now is American international Brad Friedel. While Harry was known to favour older goalkeepers throughout his managerial career, a new boss may come in and start the quest for a long term replacement straight away.
The latest in a long line of stoppers to be linked with the club is Bordeaux’s Cedric Carrasso. While he can genuinely be referred to as a French international, 30 year old Carrasso has largely been kept as third choice for France after making his debut in 2009.
The fee involved could amount to £5.5 million as opposed to the £12 million quoted for first choice Hugo Lloris but the story, that seems to originate from the Metro newspaper, may just be based on a loose connection with Laurent Blanc.
