Tottenham Hotspur have Indicated an interest in Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster. The former Manchester United goalkeeper is considered one of the finest shot stoppers in the Premier league.
Foster, 36, will be out of contract at the end of the season, though there’s an option of additional year on his contract but he is expected to make the move to North London and challenge Hugo Lloris for the number one spot.
Lloris has suffered with injury this season, he injured his shoulder against Brighton in October. He recently returned to first team action in January. Gazzaniga has been in goal since the absence of the captain, and the Argentine impressed his boss Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho has previously spoken of his admiration for Gazzaniga, who impressed while Lloris was out injured, so any move for Foster always seemed fairly unlikely.
Gazzaniga started in place of the injured Lloris once more in Sunday’s 3-2 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers, which left Spurs down in seventh in the Premier League table.
Foster left West Brom after they were relegated to the Championship. Foster signed for Premier League club Watford on 5 July 2018 on a two-year contract, with the option of an additional year, for an undisclosed fee.
According to a report from Spain, Tootenham will return for Colombia international James Rodriguez in the summer. The Lilywhites made a strong bid for the player in the summer but they could not meet Madrid’s asking price for the player.
Former Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino was a keen admirer of the player, and he was keen to add the player to his squad. Spurs also made an approach for the player in January, that indicates that new manager Jose Mourinho also wants the player. Spurs will return for the player in the summer. James will have a year left on his contract at the end of the season, and Madrid will listen to offers or they risk losing him for free by 2012.
