Tottenham have made a bid for Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini but could face competition from Wolverhampton Wanderers for his signature.
That’s according to Calciomercato, who say the two could battle it out for the Italian goalkeeper this summer.
Gollini has been Atalanta’s number one for the last few years but has found himself down the pecking order this summer after the €20m arrival of Juan Musso.
He’s set to be the first choice moving forwards, and in order to cover the costs, Atalanta are planning to sell some of their current squad to continue their transfer business.
The ‘first one’ to be sold is Gollini, and there is a feeling they can get a good deal as he ‘has the numbers’ to be a starter ‘in a great team’.
His past in England also plays its part, and that is where the current bids for him are from, with Tottenham and Wolves having made an ‘offer’ so far.
Atalanta ‘know they can get up to €20m’ in a sale but are waiting for a ‘British auction’ or any of his suitors to offer the right amount. That seemingly has not happened as yet.
The goalkeeper is currently on his holidays and keeping fit ahead of a move but wants to join a club where he can be the starter as his dream is to be Italy’s first choice at the World Cup next summer.
That seems unlikely to be on offer at Tottenham, given they still have Hugo Lloris in goal, but Wolves can definitely provide that after Rui Patricio’s move to Roma.
Whether either club are willing to match Atalanta’s demands remains to be seen, but it appears both clubs have put in their first bids at least.
