Tottenham Hotspur had offered Paulo Gazzaniga to Liverpool and Everton
The Argentine is effectively the third choice keeper at the club behind Hugo Lloris and new signing Joe Hart. A capable keeper, Gazzaniga impressed last season when he had to step in for Lloris.
Both the Merseyside clubs are in search of a goalkeeper for different reasons. While Liverpool’s number one Alisson Becker is injured, Everton’s Jordan Pickford has proved to be anything but reliable.
The Reds started Adrian in goal last week and fell to a shock 7-2 loss at Villa Park. While the team as a whole had a day off, the Spanish shot-stopper’s performance was highly questionable.
Everton, on the other hand, are the early trailblazers after four matches. Despite winning all four, Pickford has let in cheap goals, much to Carlo Ancelotti’s dismay.
Spurs saw this as an invitation to offer the shot-stopper to both clubs. Neither team appears to have taken the bait and the 28-year-old is still at Tottenham.
According to the Express, Tottenham Hotspur have omitted Gazzaniga from their 25-man squad for the UEFA Europa League group stages. It would appear that he has no role to play at the club this season.
Having signed six new players in the summer, Tottenham have more non-homegrown players than that permitted by UEFA. As a result, Jose Mourinho had to take the harsh decision of leaving out both the Argentine and Gedson Fernandes. (h/t Express)
