Brazilian ‘keeper attracting interest from Milan…
Out of favor goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is set to end his stay at Tottenham with Milan and an unnamed Dutch Eredivisie side competing for his signature, according to Sky Sports.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas inherited a wealth of goalkeeping options when he arrived at White Hart Lane in the summer, with Brad Friedel, Carlo Cudicini, and Gomes all vying for the number one spot.
And, when the Portuguese tactician moved to bring in France captain Hugo Lloris to his ranks, the South American stopper’s chances of regular action almost entirely diminished.
Cudicini has since moved to the MLS to link up with LA Galaxy, while Friedel and Lloris continue to be rotated for Premier League and cup competitions.
With Gomes currently third in line to the goalkeepers jersey, the Brazilian has set his sights on a transfer, and is a reported target for Milan. The Serie A giants are on the lookout for a new goalkeeper at the San Siro and have been linked with a €12 million swoop for Newcastle’s Tim Krul. But 31-year-old Gomes offers a cheaper solution with the Brazilian available for transfer.
However, the Rossoneri could face competition for the player’s signature with a couple of unnamed Dutch clubs believed to be monitoring the Spurs stopper’s situation.
