Guglielmo Vicario is a potential summer target for Tottenham as Antonio Conte seeks a viable replacement for Hugo Lloris.
According to Calciomercatoweb, Tottenham are interested in a move for Guglielmo Vicario. The Empoli stopper could become a viable replacement for Hugo Lloris. The north Londoners are preparing to move on from the veteran Frenchman when the season ends.
Hugo Lloris is currently out for the remainder of the season and may even have lost his status as Tottenham’s No.1 when he returns. The veteran Frenchman has had a disastrous season between the sticks, making many high-profile errors leading to goals.
His mistakes have cost Tottenham many points as they fell out of a probable title race very early. Meanwhile, they are currently fighting for a top-four spot. They are set to battle with Newcastle United and Liverpool for a place in next season’s Champions League.
Conte wants a proper solution to their goalkeeping problem next season. He has shortlisted several top-rated names. Earlier reports suggested they might have reached an agreement for Turkish keeper Altay Bayindir. More stories indicate they are nowhere near signing a preferred starter.
Illan Meslier is a key target for Conte, with the Frenchman also chased by Chelsea and Manchester United. A few factors could hinder transfer progress, with one being the future of Conte. Secondly, Spurs could make significant signings if they qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
There are other names like Napoli’s Alex Meret; Conte is also looking at another Italian club for their keeper. Empoli’s 26-year-old Italian goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario has emerged as a target for the Spurs boss. His magnificent performances in Serie A have alerted many other sides.
Juventus and Roma are also keen on Vicario as they look to strengthen the key position in their sides. Meanwhile, Tottenham hopes the lure of the Premier League would tempt the 26-year-old Italian goalkeeper. However, as Serie A players go, he might remain in his homeland for the foreseeable future.
Vicario only signed for Empoli last summer, meaning he has plenty of time left on his current deal. Tottenham could attempt a generous offer, but much will depend on how the story progresses. Spurs will also keep their options open and look at other options to strengthen their position.
