Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on League One goalkeeper Toby Savin

According to the Sun, Tottenham Hotspur view Accrington Stanley star Toby Savin as a long-term solution in goal and are currently sending scouts to watch him. 

The 20-year-old is an energetic youngster who joined the League One side in 2017, going on to sign a professional contract in 2019 and make his debut the same year. The shot-stopper’s incredible abilities helped him climb the ranks at Accrington and is currently garnering ample game time.

He has kept eight clean sheets in 22 matches in this campaign which is a fair return for a 20-year-old youngster.

It is believed that Tottenham have taken a close interest in Savin and are keeping tabs on his progress. Our board is currently viewing the Southport-born stopper as a long term target and are already sending scouts to watch him play. The Spurs board could be waiting for the right opportunity to strike a deal with Accrington.

The North London team is not the first to be interested in the talented goalkeeper. Southampton were interested in signing him last season, but the 20-year-old ended up signing a three-year contract with the League One team. 

Tottenham’s first-choice keeper Hugo Lloris signed a contract renewal until 2024 three days ago and is looking to keep his position as Antonio Conte’s first choice in goal. However, the French World Cup winner turned 35 last month and is nearing the end of his career. He is still providing top-notch performances between the sticks, but our board has to keep a long-term view.

Pierluigi Gollini, who joined us last summer on loan from Atalanta, is our current number 2 for the goalkeeper position. The Italian recently made a massive mistake in the Carabao Cup second leg match against bitter rival Chelsea and it is still uncertain whether the Spurs board would keep him beyond his loan spell.

Signing Savin would provide the coaching hierarchy with an opportunity to groom a goalkeeper from scratch and ensure he is ready for the challenge. But, striking a deal with Accrington in the midst of the season for their main goalkeeper would be a little tricky. Given that he is unlikely to become the first choice anytime soon, we can always look to return for him in the summer.

With Lloris staying on for the foreseeable future, the Frenchman can continue in goal and help nurture Savin into a top-level talent. It would ensure that we have a ready-made replacement to take over the reins.
