Video: Pau Lopez 9th in Top 10 young keepers


Espanyol have begun their search for a new backup keeper with Pau Lopez set to hold a press conference to say goodbye. He has been pushing for a move since Mauricio Pochettino phoned him to let him know he wanted him to come to Tottenham and learn from Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm.

His arrival will not necessarily mean the departure of Vorm as Lopez isn't ready for Premier League football yet, We continue to push to get this deal done before we play Crystal Palace, time is ticking though. As we know at Spurs nothing is ever done until it is official so news that he was flying over for a medical would be a boost.

As in every position Pochettino has been looking to secure the future of the club by having youngsters coming through, the conveyor belt of talent we want to put in place. Lopez is a part of that, a player seen as a future number one who can come in and work with the two keepers we have to build his game ready for the day he can take over.

He is coming here because he will now be the number two at Espanyol and while he will be number three here, he has the opportunity to learn from one of the best in the world, which in turn will make him a better keeper than learning under a lesser keeper at Espanyol.

The video below will give you a glimpse of him, number 9 in a list of the Top 10 young goalkeepers.
