Apparently, Harry Redknapp is considering replacing his number one after a few shaky performances, but does he need to?
Tottenham are eyeing Vitoria Guimaraes goalkeeper Nilson.
New Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was impressed by Nilson’s performance in last week’s UEFA Cup clash with Portsmouth.
Pompey are also keen on Nilson, along with Deportivo La Coruna. (tribalfootball.com)
Whilst Gomes hasn’t been at his best in recent weeks, he is still a very solid keeper and miles more reliable than previous incumbent Paul Robinson, so I am not sure there is a need to bring in a keeper. I guess every Ramos signing of recent months is going to be thinking about his future, as will a few others who have been at the club for a while. A new manager always brings uncertainty, and that does tend to encourage players to give it their all, hence the last two excellent performances under Harry.
The former PSV keeper hasn’t suddenly become an average keeper, he is a quality international who will surely prove any doubters that he is good enough to call the starting spot his own. I don’t see Redknapp opting for a move for this £4m-rated Brazilian keeper at Guimaraes. Do Tottenham fans think that they need a new keeper, or is Heurelho sound enough between the sticks?
