Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha, according to reports in Italy.

Strakosha conceded 39 goals in 35 Serie A appearances this season, keeping 10 clean sheets.

And Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (via Team Talk) claims Spurs and Arsenal have expressed an interest in signing the 24-year-old.

It is believed Lazio may be prepared to sell Strakosha for around £22 million, a relatively low fee in today’s market.

Tottenham aren’t in desperate need of a new first-choice goalkeeper with Mauricio Pochettino known to be a big supporter of 32-year-old captain Hugo Lloris.

Michel Vorm has left the club on a free transfer, but Paulo Gazzaniga is a more than capable deputy to Lloris.

The Londoners may opt to sign a new third-choice stopper, although faith might be put in youngster Alfie Whiteman to make the step up.

Arsenal are more likely to pursue a new goalkeeper as a result of Petr Cech’s retirement, and the Gunners will be able to offer Strakosha minutes in the Europa League.

Any goalkeeper that comes into Spurs will know their game time is reduced to playing in the domestic cup competitions.
