Tottenham Hotspur star Paulo Gazzaniga joins Spanish side Elche on loan

According to Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur outcast Paulo Gazzaniga has joined La Liga side Elche on loan for the remainder of the season. The 29-year-old had called down the pecking order following the signing of Joe Hart last summer.

The Argentine looked to be on his way out of the club in the summer but ultimately ended up staying put. He is yet to feature for the club this season and was even omitted from Spurs’ Europa League squad.

The move to Elche will now offer him an opportunity to get his career back on track. The Spaniards are in real threat of relegation and are currently second from bottom, two points off safety. They do however have two games in hand over the teams around them. With Gazzaniga between the posts, they could turn the tables in the coming months.

The 29-year-old did himself no disservice when he was forced to step in for the injured Hugo Lloris last season. In fact, he held his own and showcased the ability to become a dependable backup goalkeeper.

Unfortunately, his chances of making appearances in the Europa League were impossible too, thanks to Spurs’ quota of foreign players. A difficult but necessary decision was made to cut him.

Gazzaniga hopes to make the Argentina squad for next summer’s Copa America

With the Copa America set to be held next summer, a return to action with Elche could offer Gazzaniga the opportunity to earn himself a call-up. With Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero also struggling for game time, Gazzaniga should aim to make the most of this opportunity.

Gazzaniga is a decent keeper who can more often be trusted than not. It is unfair on him to have to spend what is the prime of his career on the sidelines at Spurs. Hopefully, he will showcase his abilities in Spain and earn himself a move away in the summer.
