Tottenham ready to offload Paulo Gazzaniga in the summer
The 29-year-old arrived at Tottenham in the summer of 2017 but has spent the entire time at the club playing second-fiddle to Hugo Lloris. Following the arrival of Joe Hart last summer, Gazzaniga further fell down the pecking order and was left out of the club’s Europa League squad for the season.
Having not played at all, the Argentine custodian secured a loan move away to La Liga outfit Elche in the January transfer window. Since moving to Spain, the former Southampton man is yet to make his debut for his new club.
With his situation not improving Spain either, Gazzaniga faces an uncertain future ahead of him. Tottenham, though, have made their decision on what they want to do once he return when his loan deal runs out and he returns to the club.
Indeed, Tottenham have taken the call to offload him permanently once his current temporary spell with Elche expires. And the decision makes plenty of sense as well. Even though Lloris is not getting any younger, he remains the first-choice while Hart has shown that he can be trusted as the backup.
With Alfie Whiteman coming through the ranks to act as the third-choice, Gazzaniga does not have any room in the first-team squad. Furthermore, his contract with the north London giants runs out in the summer of 2022.

That would mean the upcoming summer would represent the last chance for Tottenham to make some cash from his sale. An exit would make sense for all parties involved.
