According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are pushing to complete a £2million deal for Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga as they chase their first summer signing.

In order to keep challenging for the Premier League title, Tottenham do need to keep up with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City, with the latter signing Kyle Walker from Spurs in a big-money deal last month.
Some fans want another right back, centre back or another winger, but having seen loanee Pau Lopez return to Espanyol at the end of his deal, Pochettino now appears to be moving for another goalkeeper.
The Sun report that Tottenham are set to make Southampton's Paulo Gazzaniga their first signing of the summer, in a deal that would reportedly cost just £2million.
Gazzaniga, 25, hails from Murphy in Santa Fe, Argentina, just like Spurs boss Pochettino, and the pair worked together at Southampton after the 6ft 5in stopper joined from Gillingham in the summer of 2012.

Gazzaniga has made just 23 appearances for Southampton though, and having spent last season out on loan at Rayo Vallecano, he now appears to be surplus to requirements on the South Coast.
Pochettino is keen to replace Lopez as a third choice behind Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm, and Gazzainga – who may not excite fans should he sign – fits the bill in that regard, with the two Argentinians now expected to reunite this summer.
