Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a deal to bring Robert Sanchez to north London.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a report by 90min, who claim that Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici have identified the Brighton & Hove Albion goalkeeper as a potential replacement for Hugo Lloris between the Spurs sticks.

However, the report goes on to state that the Italian duo understand that shopping within the Premier League comes at a premium, meaning that a deal for the 25-year-old shot-stopper could be a price one.

“Top drawer”

Considering just how impressive Sanchez has been for Brighton over the past three seasons, it is not difficult to understand why Conte and Paratici would be interested in a move to bring the Spain international to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Indeed, over his 27 Premier League appearances during his breakthrough campaign back in 2020/21, the £28m-rated talent was in sensational form, helping his side keep ten clean sheets and making an average of 2.4 saves – at a success rate of 71% – per game, with these returns seeing him average a very impressive SofaScore match rating of 6.89.

It was a similar story over the £10k-per-week shot-stopper’s 37 league outings last season, with Sanchez helping the Seagulls keep 11 clean sheets and making an average of 2.7 saves – at a success rate of 71% – per game, with these metrics seeing the player who Mark Anderson dubbed “top drawer” average an even more eye-catching SofaScore match rating of 6.92.

The £50m-valued ‘keeper has also impressed over his 14 top-flight fixtures in the current campaign, already helping his side keep four clean sheets and making an average of 2.4 saves – at a success rate of 63% – per game, with these returns seeing the 25-year-old average a SofaScore match rating of 6.76.

Furthermore, with the Spaniard being renowned for his ability with the ball at his feet, something is a particularly weak aspect of Lloris’ game, this would appear to represent yet another string to the two-cap international’s bow.

As such, should Paratici manage to get a deal over the line for a goalkeeper who has overcome some “ridiculous” mistakes, it would very much appear as if the sporting director will have indeed sealed a top-draw signing, as Sanchez undoubtedly possesses the potential to become Spurs’ number one for many a year to come.
