Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of 26-year-old goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini on loan from Atalanta with an option to make the transfer permanent at the end of the season.
Spurs released Paulo Gazzaniga at the end of last season and required a new pair of hands to compete with Hugo Lloris and Joe Hart.
Gollini could be a potential long-term successor to 34-year-old Lloris. The Italian has longstanding connections to English football, having joined Manchester United’s youth ranks at the age of 17 and later spent time at Aston Villa in the Championship.
He has been Atalanta’s number one since 2018, during which time the club has finished third in Serie A three seasons in a row to become an established Champions League side.
