Tottenham are hoping to sign goalkeeper Gavin Bajunu (21) from 20th place Southampton.
Bajunu is one of Ireland’s promising young goalkeepers. He shows strength in saving based on his excellent reflexes. He often makes mistakes due to his lack of experience and has weaknesses in build-up, but boasts extraordinary quickness.
Recognized for his talent,메이저사이트 Bajunu joined the Manchester City Academy in 2019. Bajunu, who grew up in the Manchester City youth team, went on loan to Rochdale in the 2020-21 season and Portsmouth in the 2021-2022 season. At Portsmouth, expectations were received as the main goalkeeper.
He returned to Manchester City in 2022, but there was no place for Bajunu, and he eventually transferred to Southampton for 12 million pounds (about 20 billion won). Bajunu took the starting lineup, but Southampton finished bottom of the league and their relegation was confirmed next season. Bajunu has conceded 61 goals in 32 league appearances and kept five clean sheets.
Tottenham are showing interest in Bajunu. England’s ‘Football Insider’ said on the 15th (Korean time), “Tottenham is hoping to sign Bajunu. Tottenham have been impressed with Bajunu’s progress and are looking to replace Hugo Lloris as their first-choice goalkeeper.”
Lloris, who has kept Tottenham’s goal for a long time, is likely to transfer after this season. With an injury preventing him from playing the rest of the season, he received an offer from Saudi Arabia. In addition, Fraser Foster (35), the backup, is also in his mid-30s, and it is absolutely necessary to change the generation of the goalkeeper. In response, the young Bajunu is closely watched.
With Southampton’s relegation confirmed, Tottenham seems to have paid attention to Bajunu, who can be recruited more easily. Also, the estimated transfer fee revealed by the media is only 15 million pounds (about 25 billion won). However, the news that Tottenham fans want a goalkeeper with a conceding rate of close to 2 goals per game is growing concern.
