Tottenham Hotspur ended their last match in the Premier League in a frustrating draw against Swansea City. None of their forwards were able to make a mark in the match and score a goal to get them another three points, which were much important for their progress in the campaign this term.

The Spurs got themselves a number of players in the summer transfer window this season, as they brought in Davinson Sanchez, Fernando Llorente, and Serge Aurier to add to their strength right before the deadline day. However, they are willing to add more power to their side and are eyeing the young goalkeeper Pontus Dahlberg, who is currently playing in the Swedish Allsvenskan for IFK Goteberg.

The 18-year-old has been one of the brightest stars for his club since his inception in the senior side in the last term and has been playing a very crucial role beneath the crossbars for the Swedish club. He has made it through the ranks to become the first choice goalkeeper for his side, having played a very crucial role both for the Under 19 and Under 21 sides of IFK Goteberg in the past few years.

Known for his brilliant ball-handling skills and also for his ability to stand strong in even the toughest of situations, Dahlberg has been highly rated as one of the best goalkeepers to play in the Allsvenskan in the past few years and is expected to have a great future ahead of him.

His abilities have attracted the eyes of a number of big-name clubs from all over Europe, with Tottenham being on the top of the list of potential suitors for the brilliant shot-stopper.

The Spurs have been looking to strengthen their backline and get someone who can play a substantial role in between the sticks in the future to replace their first choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who is now 30 years old.

Thought they have already got Paulo Gazzaniga from Premier League rival club Southampton in the last transfer window, the signing of the 18-year-old goalkeeper from Goteberg will mean that the North London club is already starting to sort their future and are strengthening their side as much as possible for the long run.

Pontus Dahlberg appeared on 27 occasions for his side in the last season, making himself known not only in Swedish football but also in European football. A young player like him will no doubt add value to the Tottenham side, given that his present IFK Goteberg lets go of their prized possession. So should Spurs sign him up?
