Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano reveals Tottenham Hotspur are happy with Guglielmo Vicario
Tottenham Hotspur have begun the season impressively, and the club’s management are said to be thrilled with the performances of Guglielmo Vicario since his arrival in North London, as stated by renowned transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.
The 26-year-old joined Spurs with a strong reputation as a consequence of his performances in Serie A for Empoli.
However, the fans were sceptical about the Italians’ ability to adapt to the Premier League, especially after what they observed during the preseason.
However, Gollini has quickly won over the fans with his solid performances at the start of the season.
The goalkeeper has not only displayed remarkable shot-stopping skills but has also stood out with his ability to make sound decisions under pressure.
This has been instrumental in helping the revamped Tottenham team to build their play from the back.
While Hugo Lloris is undeniably one of Tottenham’s greatest goalkeepers in the Premier League era and a modern-day legend for the club, his performance has seen a decline in the past few seasons.
Having someone like Gollini in goal who instils confidence has made a significant difference for the Lilywhites.
Although Vicario may not possess the same level of ball-playing ability as goalkeepers like Ederson, Alisson, or even Raya, he stands out for his composure and sound decision-making in high-pressure situations.
This aligns well with the playing style desired by manager Ange Postecoglou, making him a valuable asset to the team.
The former Serie A star’s performance against Liverpool was another point to be stressed on. His double save in the first half to block Cody Gakpo and Andy Robertson’s shots was remarkable.
The North London side is not afraid to initiate attacks from the back and commit bodies forward. The typical old-fashioned Spurs conceding goals look changed now.

Solid defence helps you win titles, and leaders like Vicario are needed to achieve the same. The club’s recruitment team also needs a shout-out for bringing in a player who suits Postecoglou’s style of play.
