Gabriel Agbonlahor recommended David Raya (Brentford) to Tottenham.
Tottenham will be led by coach Ange Postecoglu from next season. Tottenham highly praised the leadership of Postecoglu, who won three domestic competitions (league, cup, FA Cup) at Celtic this season, and officially announced it as a new manager after contacting several candidates.
One of the many things Postecoglu has to do in the summer is to find a new goalkeeper. Hugo Lloris (36), who has been a main player for a long time, is expected to leave the team at the end of this season. Fraser Foster (35) is also in a backup role, so he needs a starting goalkeeper.
Tottenham’s most wanted player is Raya. Raya has been active at Brentford since the 2019-20 season. Raya, who occupied a starting position since the championship days, kept the goal even after promotion to the Premier League. He played in 37 league games this season and Brentford finished ninth thanks to Raya’s performance.
As a Spanish player, Raya boasts excellent build-up skills and accurate kicks. His judgment is also fast, and he plays an important role in rear build-up. He is 183 cm tall, but he is not a tall goalkeeper, but he makes saves based on his agility and overcomes crisis with bold judgment.
Agbonlaher,스포츠토토 who played for Aston Villa in the past, told the British Football Insider on the 7th (Korean time), “Tottenham need the best goalkeeper. Lloris is a good goalkeeper, but it wasn’t enough. Raya suits Tottenham,” he said.
“Tottenham needs to sign a goalkeeper first. If you have a good goalkeeper, you can rank higher.” The media also announced Tottenham’s interest in Raya, saying that he was the first candidate for the recruitment of manager Postecoglu.
