Tottenham must join reported hunt for 6ft 3 PL colossus with £22,000-a-wk player set for exit


Tottenham are very likely to find themselves in need of a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window with Michel Vorm set to exit the club when his contract expires in the coming weeks.

Vorm, 34, has been a good servant for Spurs but it seems that his time in North London is set to end and as Mauricio Pochettino insists on having three goalkeeper options, he will surely have to find a replacement to the Netherlands international who, according to the Daily Star, earns £22,000-a-week.

Spurs’ perfect replacement for Vorm lies on the south coast with Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy starting to attract a lot of attention for his role in helping the Saints avoid relegation from the Premier League.

The Mirror has recently reported that Arsenal, Liverpool and Wolves are keeping close tabs on the 28-year-old, but it should be Tottenham who must join the race for his signature as they will surely need a new shot-stopper.

McCarthy ousted Fraser Forster as Southampton’s No 1 earlier this season in what has turned out to be an inspired decision by the club’s management.

The 6ft 3in colossus has made 17 Premier League appearances since and kept four vital clean sheets that have secured the safety of the Saints.

Tottenham need a trusted set of hands to play back-up to Hugo Lloris and McCarthy would be the perfect replacement for Vorm.

In other Tottenham news, this £30million-rated jet-heeled attacker would be a stunning addition at Spurs’ new stadium for next season.
