Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on signing the Lazio ace.
According to a report from Italian media outlet Corriere della Serra, Tottenham are interested in signing Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha this summer, and some Spurs fans took to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
Tottenham currently have Hugo Lloris as their number one 'keeper, with Paulo Gazzaniga as back-up, so if the north London outfit were to bring the Albanian to the club, they would surely need to get rid of one of the aforementioned players.
And Strakosha won't come cheap either.
According to a report from Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato, the 24-year-old is valued at €50 million (£45 million) by Lazio, and that would be a serious amount of money to pay for a goalkeeper.
It could be argued that Spurs actually need to strengthen more urgently in other areas of the pitch, so a move for the Albania international seems to be very unlikely to say the least.
And some Tottenham fans agreed with that notion, taking to Twitter to deliver their verdicts...

Gazzanigga the keeper 4 me— Ian Meadows (@ianmeds86) 11 June 2019
I’d rather see Paolo Gazzaniga promoted to the No1 keeper. I think he’s deserved it— Mark (@e_greenfingers) 11 June 2019
Hope he is second to gazza— Gazza (@Gazza29156560) 11 June 2019
Honestly think gazziniga is class if anything want to see him promoted and given a chance before signing another GK #COYS— Don Mauricio (@KaramYiddoSingh) 11 June 2019
GAZZANIGA???— Mark Lucas (@Mark_lucasSkem) 11 June 2019
What a kick in the teeth that would be for Gazzaniga, can't be legit.— Phil Meyler (@PhilMeyler) 11 June 2019
We'll sign an English keeper for the 3rd keeper spot unless we promote from the youth.— Robin's Nest (@HarlowC) 11 June 2019
Why are they after a keeper ? Gazzaniga is a very good keeper.— costakis costi (@costakis15) 11 June 2019
Quite happy to give the reigns to Gazzaniga— Shane Essam (@EssamShane) 12 June 2019
Fine by me. With Vorm gone all we have are Lloris, Gazza, and Whiteman. Whiteman should go and I’n still not 100 convinced in Gazza’s ability against big clubs— |R|S (@zerofoxgiven75) 11 June 2019
Nothing wrong with competition. Lloris hasn’t really been pushed for the 1 spot in years and it would be nice having a dogfight for the next in line— Jeremy Wheeler (@tbbucs216) 11 June 2019
