Tottenham Hotspur Summer Signing Is 'Desperate' To Leave The Club, Already Lined Up An Escape

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini is looking to leave the club this month - halfway through his loan spell from Atalanta.


Gollini arrived in the summer hoping to dislodge club captain Hugo Lloris from his number one spot between the sticks.

But his game time has been limited under both Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte, with Gollini featuring in just 10 games all season.

Citta Celeste have reported Lazio are currently looking for a new number one and Gollini would be keen to return to Serie A.

The 26-year-old was a mainstay in Atalanta's side after joining from Aston Villa, helping Gian Piero Gasperini's side into the Champions League.

But they opted to sign Juan Musso as their new keeper and it left Gollini on the bench.

Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to sign a new goalkeeper after splitting the duty between Pepe Reina and Thomas Strakosha this campaign.

Spurs have been linked with a move for West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnstone for a number of years and they could turn to him once again.

Conte's side currently sit sixth in the Premier League and have a chance at making the top four.

Elimination from the Europa Conference League could now benefit Spurs, with West Ham and Manchester United still occupied with European football.

Spurs saw their North London Derby clash with Arsenal postponed on Sunday as the Gunners claimed to not have enough players to field a squad - despite only having two positive Covid cases.

Ahead of Wednesday's re-arranged game with Leicester City, Conte admitted he's shocked at the number of postponements in the last few weeks.

He explained: "The club made a statement and I think that the club expressed our disappointment about the decision.

"It was for sure a strange decision but I think the club made an important statement to tell about our disappointment for the decision.

"If the Premier League decides to postpone game for injuries it means they have to try to make the best schedule and reduce maybe to play games if they don't want injuries or the risk to postpone for injuries.

"This is the first time in my life that there is a league that postpone the game for injuries. This is very strange and I'm very surprised for this."
