PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday confirmed that Tottenham have inquired about the availability of 27 year old, Brazilian goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes.
A fan favorite Gomes, asked for a transfer shortly after PSV claimed their 21st league title last season, citing differences with managing director Jan Reker, which alerted Spurs. Gomes stated in the Dutch magazine Voetbal International that he had lost trust in PSV. He also criticized the trainer situation.
“Tottenham have informed us of their interest,” Reker was quoted as saying in the Eindhovens Dagblad newspaper. Although Reker insisted a deal has yet to be agreed, he hinted it was close after revealing the club have already drawn up a list of replacements.
“It is true that Andreas Isaksson is one of the candidates to replace Gomes, but we are looking at other keepers too,” he added.
Isasksson, a 26 year old, Swedish goalkeeper, is currently employed by Premier League outfit Manchester City.
