Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing 26-year-old Italian goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli.

According to a report from Italian publication La Gazzetta Dello sport, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing 26-year-old Empoli goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario, who has been quite impressive in Serie A this season.

The north Londoners have been linked with a number of goalkeepers in recent months as they look into replacing Hugo Lloris as their first-choice shot-stopper at the end of the season. Jamie Carragher recently urged Tottenham to offload the veteran goalkeeper.

The 35-year-old Frenchman has been an exceptional servant for Spurs since joining them from Lyon, but his regression is quite evident. Lloris is no longer the player he used to be, and Tottenham will have to bring in a replacement soon.

The French goalkeeper has cost the team with his errors this season. And it will be interesting to see if Spurs can get a deal for Vicario over the line in the coming months. The 26-year-old Empoli goalkeeper is highly rated in Italy and has exceeded expectations with his performances. There is no doubt that he would improve further when he is playing for a top club like Tottenham.

The Italian goalkeeper is about to hit his peak years, and he could prove to be a quality addition for Tottenham. The north London club will be hoping to win trophies like the Premier league and the UEFA Champions League in the coming seasons. They need to address their weaknesses in order for that to happen.

Upgrading on Lloris should be a top priority for Antonio Conte this summer. The north Londoners need to invest in their defence as well. They have shown interest in players like Pau Torres.

Daniel Levy has been extremely supportive of the Italian manager since his arrival. And it will be interesting to see if the Tottenham Chairman is willing to back him with funds in the January transfer window and in the summer as well.

The opportunity to move to Tottenham is likely to be a tempting proposition for Vicario, and he is likely to be excited to join the Premier League club. It will be a major step up in his career and it could help the Italian goalkeeper improve as a player as well.

The 26-year-old has shown that he is capable of playing at a higher level. So it will be interesting to see whether Tottenham can agree on a fee with Empoli for his services. But Spurs also have other goalkeepers on their radar, including Jordan Pickford.
