Aston Villa could turn attention to Oxford United man as transfer target looks Fulham-bound
Fulham ‘look set to swoop’ for Paulo Gazzaniga after his Spurs exit – the Argentine was previously in talks with Aston Villa.
Gazzaniga, 29, looks poised to join Fulham this summer.
He left Spurs at the end of last season and has previously been linked with Aston Villa. The Sun on Sunday (25.07.21, pg. 62) though reports that Gazzaniga wants to remain in London and that Villa could now ‘turn their attention’ to Oxford United’s Jack Stevens to replace Tom Heaton.
Marco Silva is need of a goalkeeper at Fulham after seeing Alphonse Areola’s loan deal expire under previous manager Scott Parker.
Fulham have Marek Rodak in their ranks who impressed during their last Championship spell. But the youngster seems to have sunk down the pecking order after last summer’s promotion into the Premier League and news of Gazzaniga’s potential arrival could dictate Rodak’s future too.
But for Silva and his new side, bringing someone in with the experience of Gazzaniga will prove a shrewd move – the Argentine international has previously represented Southampton, Rayo Vallecano and last season Elche on loan from Spurs.
He’s 22 Premier League appearances to his name for the north London club but now looks set to make the switch to west.
