are close to signing David Raya. However, the 65 billion won transfer fee requested by Brentford seems to be a stumbling block.스포츠토토
The 2022-23 season was a ‘nightmare’ for Tottenham. Even before the opening, I hoped to escape from the military, but it did not come true. In the league, it stayed in 8th place, let alone the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), and the entry into the European competition itself was frustrated.
Next season, we will enter a new managerial system. The main character is director Ange Postecoglu. With the arrival of a new manager, change is inevitable. Several resources are already involved with Tottenham.
It seems that the wind of change is blowing in the goalkeeper as well. This is because Hugo Lloris, who has led Tottenham for a long time, is likely to leave. Currently, he is receiving a love call from Saudi Arabia.
Tottenham were looking for a replacement for Lloris. There are candidates. Raya of Brentford is the main character. Although he is not tall as a high-level goalkeeper from Spain, he has made his mark in the English Premier League (EPL) with his excellent feet.
He challenged the EPL stage at a relatively late age of 26, but showed good skills. He also led Brentford this season with 12 clean sheets in all pre-league appearances.
Amid interest from Tottenham, the possibility of his transfer is increasing. Because Brentford have signed a new goalkeeper. Brentford officially announced on the club website on the 31st of last month (Korean time) that “Freiburg goalkeeper Mark Flecken has joined Brentford through a four-year contract.”
Naturally, Raya’s departure became a fait accompli. Negotiations with Tottenham also made progress. European football transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on his SNS on the 12th, “Tottenham has almost completed a personal agreement with Raya. It is a long-term contract. After positive conversations, an agreement is imminent.”
But there were some stumbling blocks. The transfer fee Brentford was asking for was too expensive. Romano said: “The dialogue between the clubs is going to be important. Brentford want a transfer fee of £40 million (about 65 billion won). Tottenham think this amount is too high.”
