Tottenham Sets £20 Million Limit for Brentford’s David Raya
Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly interested in signing Brentford goalkeeper David Raya, but the club has set a limit of £20 million for the transfer. This decision comes as a potential blow to Manchester United, who is also interested in Raya. According to The Sun, Tottenham is keen on acquiring Raya’s services but is unwilling to meet Brentford’s £40 million asking price.
David Raya’s Impressive Career
Raya, 27, has established himself as one of the Premier League’s top goalkeepers since helping Brentford reach the top flight. He has made 161 appearances for Brentford, keeping 54 clean sheets, and recently made his international debut for Spain. Despite his success at Brentford, Raya is expected to leave the club in the summer transfer window.
Tottenham’s Goalkeeper Situation
Tottenham is in the market for a new goalkeeper as Hugo Lloris, the club’s current first-choice goalkeeper, is expected to leave. Raya has been identified as a potential replacement for Lloris. However, Tottenham’s decision to limit their offer to £20 million could give Manchester United an advantage in the race to sign Raya.
As the summer transfer window approaches, the potential move of Raya to Tottenham or Manchester United could significantly impact the football landscape. With both clubs interested in Raya, the coming weeks will be crucial in determining where the Spanish goalkeeper will play next season.
