London rivals set to battle over Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha

    Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will go head-to-head for Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha this summer should the latest reports turn out to be true

    While the Spurs look to find a suitable backup shot-stopper for their captain Hugo Lloris, the Gunners are obliged to recruit a new goalie following Petr Cech’s retirement.

    Bernd Leno has been struggling for consistency throughout last season, although he has demonstrated his class on numerous occasions, which seems enough for Unai Emery to start looking for his alternative.

    Per the Italian news outlet, Calciomercato, the North Londoners will battle it out for the Lazio No. 1 in the upcoming transfer window.

    Even though Claudio Lotito has not listed the Albanian for sale, it is believed that he would allow the 24-year-old to leave Rome should someone presents an offer in the region of €25m.

    Arrived at the Stadio Olimpico as a teenager back in 2012, Strakosha has registered 121 top-flight appearances for the Biancocelesti so far.
