Sources: Major update on Tottenham selling Gazzaniga as talks planned

Tottenham plan to sell Paulo Gazzaniga on a permanent deal this summer, Football Insider understands.

The Argentina international, 29, joined Spanish club Elche on loan at the end of the January window after dropping to third in the goalkeeper pecking order at Spurs.

A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that Gazzaniga is set for talks over his future at the end of the season.

They are set to result in the Londoners telling him he will be free to find a new club in the next window.

Gazzaniga enters the final 12 months of his contract in the summer and failed to agree an extension despite an extended spell as number one last season.

The writing was on the wall for his Tottenham career when Mourinho gave the green light for the capture of Joe Hart last summer.

That pushed Gazzaniga out of the matchday squad and he was frozen out before securing his January move to Elche.

The source explained that Mourinho “doesn’t trust” the keeper and is willing for him to leave for good.

The Argentine has been unable to reignite his career so far in Spain.

He has been an unused substitute in the three La Liga matches since his arrival at Elche, who are 18th in the table and battling to avoid relegation.

Football Insider revealed in November Spurs’ Premier League rivals Everton were keeping tabs on Gazzaniga alongside two of his teammates.

Gazzaniga played 25 times in all competitions for Tottenham last season, 24 of which were starts.

Hugo Lloris missed a big chunk of the campaign due to an elbow injury that required surgery.
