Tottenham Hotspur has finalized a €19 million agreement to acquire the services of goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario.
The 26-year-old talented Italian goalkeeper is set to sign a contract until 2028 with the North London club.
Vicario will now make his way to London for a medical examination, following an impressive stint at Empoli in Serie A last season.
With Hugo Lloris showing signs of decline, Spurs are eager to secure a top-quality goalkeeper, making Vicario an ideal candidate.
The French international, Lloris, has reached the latter stages of his career and has expressed his intention to embark on a new adventure after his contract expires next summer. As Tottenham is in dire need of a reliable shot-stopper, the arrival of the 26-year-old Vicario entering his prime years could address their goalkeeping concerns for the foreseeable future.
The immediate impact Vicario can make in the Premier League will be closely watched, as he possesses the necessary attributes to excel in English football. Tottenham fans are hopeful that their new signing will adapt swiftly and make a significant contribution from the start.
After a disappointing season that saw Spurs miss out on Champions League qualification, Vicario’s arrival is expected to bolster the squad’s chances of bouncing back under the guidance of new manager Ange Postecoglou, renowned for his success at Celtic.
