Four goalkeepers run out of contract at Tottenham Hotspur in 2022

According to Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has a key goalkeeping decision to make in the coming months.

The club’s top four goalkeepers are Hugo Lloris, Joe Hart, Paulo Gazzaniga, and Alfie Whiteman. The contracts of all four stars run out in 2022 and a decision will have to be taken regarding their future.

Lloris is a celebrated keeper who is also the club captain. He has served the club with distinction and is the undisputed No.1 at the moment.

Will Tottenham Hotspur extend the contracts of Hugo Lloris (right) or Joe Hart (left)?

However, the Frenchman is in decline and age appears to be catching up to him. The Frenchman will be 34 this December and a succession plan needs to be made to find his replacement.

The prospect of him being given a contract extension to stay on as the No.1 is debatable. Spurs could, however, do well to ensure he stays on as a backup while a new keeper takes the reins for the starting position.

Joe Hart, 33, is the current second-choice goalkeeper at the club. The vastly experienced Englishman is a decent backup. However, it makes no sense for the club to hold onto both Hart and Lloris in a backup capacity. It could turn into a case of the duo having to fight it out for their future at the club.

The expendables?

While Hart and Lloris are Mourinho’s top two picks, the likes of Gazzaniga and Whiteman appear unlikely to be under consideration for the long run.

The former has already fallen down the pecking order and was even offered to Liverpool. The Argentine could be moved out either in January or next summer.

Whiteman is the youngest of the four keepers at 22. What the future holds for him at Spurs is unclear.

At this moment in time, it is safe to assume that one of Hart or Lloris will get the nod to stay on as the backup after 2022. While Whiteman has age on his side, the prospects of him getting game time this season seems remote.

Only time will tell how Mourinho decides to solve this goalkeeping conundrum.
