Tottenham Hotspur journalist Alasdair Gold has been sharing some details on Lilywhites goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga and his current situation at the north London club.

This comes after Gold uploaded a video onto his YouTube channel earlier this week where he spoke about the biggest talking points surrounding the Lilywhites.

How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? 1. Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

On the topic of Gazzaniga and his future at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Gold had this to say on the matter.

He said: “Spurs were willing to offload him towards the end of the transfer window. [He’s a] good ‘keeper, decent ‘keeper, but he’s been ousted by Joe Hart.

“Joe Hart is the main second-choice goalkeeper right now, Gazzaniga isn’t playing in any cup competitions. Whether he plays against Stoke [in the Carabao Cup], I don’t know, I think we’ll find out, but Joe Hart will probably want to play that game and if he’s not playing in [the] Europa [League], you kind of see it as a position where you’ve brought in someone on a free transfer, and from a business point of view, if you can get a fee for Gazzaniga – and he wants to go and get minutes, you’d imagine, any player would – it does make sense to see what offers come in for him, even if it’s a loan that they get some money for.”

Spurs signed the shot-stopper back in the 2017 summer transfer window from fellow Premier League side Southampton for an undisclosed fee, but Gold has insisted that the club are ‘willing to listen to offers‘ for their goalkeeper.

Since then, the 28-year-old, who is currently valued at £3.6 million, has only made 37 appearances in a Spurs shirt in which he has conceded 43 goals and kept 10 clean sheets (per Transfermarkt).

Do you think Spurs should let Gazzaniga go in January?

TIF Thoughts on Alasdair Gold’s comments on Gazzaniga…

With Spurs captain Hugo Lloris having played every Premier League game for Jose Mourinho’s side so far this season and with Gazzaniga being left out of their Europa League squad, as well as the inclusion of Joe Hart in Spurs’ squad this season, it’s hard to see where the Argentine would get the opportunity to play in this campaign.

In our view, maybe making the move to another club where he would be a guaranteed starter would be the better option than barely getting a look-in at Spurs. With the January transfer window on the horizon, it would make sense for Gazzaniga to use this as an opportunity to move elsewhere if an offer becomes available.
