Paulo Gazzaniga backed to leave Tottenham in January by Paul Robinson
The 28-year-old Gazzaniga has been with Tottenham since 2017, having joined from Southampton. Throughout his time at the club, the Argentine has played second fiddle to the first-choice goalkeeper and club captain Hugo Lloris.
The only time he enjoyed an extended run in the starting XI was last season when Lloris was out with an elbow injury. However, Gazzaniga has fallen further down the pecking order this season, following the arrival of Joe Hart this summer.
The ex-Manchester City shot-stopper arrived on a free transfer and has taken up the No.2 slot, meaning Gazzaniga is now the third-choice goalkeeper. The 28-year-old hasn’t featured in any game so far this season.
Gazzaniga had been linked with a surprise move to Liverpool in the summer transfer window, while Aston Villa had been interested as well. And Robinson has tipped the Argentine to make an exit in January, as he is unlikely to be happy being the third-choice. (h/t Football.london)
“There’s been talk of Aston Villa and Liverpool, teams looking for backups. I could see him leaving in January. He will not want to sit there as number three because he even had a taste of being number one while Hugo was out. He is not a number three goalkeeper, he is a top goalkeeper.”

Since joining Tottenham, Gazzaniga has featured 37 times in all competitions, keeping 10 clean sheets. However, it is unlikely that he will be adding to that number, with an exit in January looking like a strong possibility.
