After their Champions League disappointment on Saturday, Tottenham must now look to the future if they want to repeat their heroics in the years to come.
The Tottenham way must change if they are to bring silverware to the club, that means pushing for signings after going two transfer windows without a single incoming player at the club.
Mauricio Pochettino will look to clear out a couple of players before making any moves this summer, with the Evening Standard claiming the Argentine will reportedly release Fernando Llorente and Michel Vorm when their contracts run out.
The imminent release of Dutch stopper Vorm will pave the way for Paulo Gazzaniga to push on and assert his place as the keeper to replace Hugo Lloris in the coming years.
The 27-year-old took the first team backup role from Vorm this year and made 11 appearances, keeping four clean sheets in the process. The Argentine must not rest now that he has cemented his place as Lloris’ understudy and instead push even harder to try and force a way into the side more often.
Gazzaniga must take inspiration from the fact that Vorm will be reportedly shown the exit door and use it as motivation to not earn the same outcome from the club.
The one-cap international has come on leaps and bounds since joining from Southampton in 2017 and with now only Lloris to compete with, more playing time could become available.
The possibility of more game time in the Premier League has to be the ultimate goal after primarily being used in cup competitions. With Lloris now 32-years-old, the opportunity to become Spurs’ permanent stopper could soon become reality and Gazzaniga must not let this chance slip away.
