Tottenham Hotspur said to hold an interest in Andreas Isaksson.

Tottenham Hotspur are monitoring Swedish goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson, report Tuttomercatoweb.

The 33-year-old currently plays for Turkish side Kasimpassa, but a clutch of clubs are interested in his signature.

Tuttomercatoweb report that Fiorentina, and Marseille are prominent sides keeping tabs on the veteran, who has a contract until 2017 with the Super Lig side.

Isaksson played in the Premier League for Manchester City between 2006 and 2008 under the management of Sven Goran Eriksson, but struggled with injuries and lost his place to the emerging Joe Hart.

Tottenham fans may remember him saving a penalty from Jermain Defoe in his debut season, but after two years he was sold to PSV, with his final game at City a humiliating 8-1 loss to Middlesbrough.

Despite that freak result, Isaksson has carved out a career as a solid goalkeeper, and has 112 international caps for Sweden.

Tottenham are unlikely to need him unless they sell Hugo Lloris, with Michel Vorm capable back-up, but if he were to sign there would be no clear cut indication if he or the Dutchman should be number one.

Spurs have also been linked with Marseille stopper Steve Mandanda, Lloris' France number two, reported by The Mirror, with the French side also a team credited with interest in Isaksson.
