Pau Lopez was signed as a number three and he was fully aware of the when agreeing to join. He felt it was the best move for his development to train with one of the world's best goalkeepers in Hugo Lloris.
Spanish publication Diario Sport are reporting that several clubs in Spain want to bring him back to Spain and have enquired about the 21-year-olds (22 in a few days) potential future in London.
The keeper arrived at White Hart Larne on deadline day for a season-long loan fee of £510,246 (€600,000 - AUS$863,125 - US$644,253). Spurs have a £5.96 million (€7m - AUS$10.08m - US$7.52m) purchase option on him and Mauricio Pochettino is said to be a big admirer of the young keeper. If we decide not to sign him after a season then we have to pay an additional £425,391 (€500,000 - AUS$719,271 - US$537,700) in compensation.
Pochettino sees him as the future and he is rated by goalkeeping coach Toni Jimenez so with keepers maturing later than outfield players, Spurs now have a potential future goalkeeper number one training with us. Planning ahead, common sense.
Spanish newspaper Sport say that Pochettino wants to keep monitoring Lopez's development at White Hart Lane before making a final decision on his future in the summer.
