Tottenham Hotspur are running the rule on FC Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa, also happens on the radar of Manchester United.

As per 90min, Tottenham Hotspur have kept their options open and have been tracking the progress of FC Porto custodian Diogo Costa as a potential replacement for their current number one Hugo Lloris.

Lloris’s immediate position does not seem to be in severe danger as he will remain Antonio Conte’s favoured candidate in the goal. After started the season on a bright note, the North Londoners have lost their initial advantage, and Lloris made a number of errors in some of the matches.

The Tottenham skipper only extended his stay in January. But given the current circumstances, a new goalkeeper might be in the offing next summer as Conte will evaluate his options as things stand.

The Italian manager has already reiterated he will need the help of a couple of transfer windows before Spurs start challenging for the Premier League title. And replacing Lloris would be a huge task for the Tottenham boss.

The French goalkeeper is in his 11th season with Tottenham and has been an ever-present since his move from Lyon. The 35-year-old will turn a year older next month, and his long-lasting legacy could be up for an insignificant ending.

Diogo Costa has been scouted by a number of big clubs, including Manchester United, who are also searching for a potential successor to David de Gea. The Spaniard has seen his stock fall, but his recent performances have elevated his level to his old self.

Manchester United are likely to invest heavily in another keeper as Dean Henderson is also not expected to play a second fiddle to de Gea and will be sold permanently. Costa recently signed a five-year contract extension, and Porto would demand an exorbitant fee to part ways with the player.

Tottenham won’t be active in January for a new shot-stopper, and Lloris’s performances after the World Cup could be a decisive factor in their race to the top four. The North Londoners have managed to remain in the UEFA Champions League spots, but they will have a tough task to cut out.
