According to Sky Italia, Tottenham are set to offload Joe Hart in order to secure the services of Pierluigi Gollini. The Atalanta goalkeeper has become one of Fabio Paratici’s main targets this summer, but the Spurs managerial director is keen on freeing up space by cashing in on Hart. The experienced goalkeeper’s current contract in north London expires at the end of next season.
Joe Hart’s First Season At Tottenham
Joe Hart joined Tottenham Hotspur last summer, in a free transfer from Burnley. He was brought in by Jose Mourinho, as the main cover for Hugo Lloris in between the sticks.
Quite unsurprisingly, Hart ended the 2020/21 campaign failing to even muster a single appearance in the Premier League. He was also not a part of the EFL Cup, though he did participate in the FA Cup and Europa League.
Hart featured in two FA Cup matches while playing six times in Europe. However, he was not selected for Tottenham’s Round of 16 clash against Dinamo Zagreb, as the Lilywhites were eventually knocked out of the competition by the Croatian giants.
His Current Role At The Club
Following a disappointing first season at the club, Joe Hart’s situation at Tottenham Hotspur is unlikely to change much. He is still behind Lloris in the pecking order, though the departure of Paulo Gazzaniga has made him the undisputed number two for the north London giants.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much scope for Hart to push for that regular spot in the first-team. Lloris is the club’s most experienced player and indeed the captain. Not to mention, he is coming on the back of a Euro 2020 campaign, where the veteran was one of the better performers for a French side that was knocked out in the Round of 16.
Should Tottenham Get Rid Of Hart?
Joe Hart’s departure from Tottenham Hotspur will be a gutsy move from the club, but it is one that makes sense. As mentioned in the report from Sky Italia, the Lilywhites are in negotiation with Atalanta regarding Gollini, who is expected to sign a two-year loan contract.
It appears the Italian is set to become Spurs’ second-choice goalkeeper for the upcoming 2021/22 campaign, before taking on the mantle from Lloris, whose contract expires in 2022.
The same can be said for Hart, as he had signed a two-year contract last summer. As such, it would be a logical move from Tottenham to cash in on the former Manchester City star, in order to make way for Golliini this summer.
