Tottenham are set to enter a bidding war with Valencia and Stuttgart for the signature of Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller, according to German publication Bild.
Jurgen Klopp's departure after the end of last season has led to many players being linked with a move out of the club, with the likes of Ilkay Gundogan, Mats Hummels and Marco Reus all considering their future this summer. Weidenfeller is reportedly being scouted as a possible replacement for Hugo Lloris, who has repeatedly expressed a desire to ply his trade in the Champions League.
Manchester United are interested in signing the Frenchman amid speculation over David de Gea's future, with Real Madrid reportedly keen on his signature. The Spaniard only has a year left on his contract and is yet to sign an extension, fuelling rumours of an imminent departure.
Weidenfeller would be an able replacement for Lloris, with the German being selected as part of the national team's World Cup triumph in Brazil last year. The 35-year-old has proven himself with Dortmund, taking them to two consecutive Bundesliga triumphs and to the finals of the Champions League, where they were beaten by local nemesis Bayern Munich.
Valencia want the player as a replacement for their number one Diego Alves who suffered a long term injury at the end of last season and is likely to be unavailable for the rest of the year. Stuttgart are also in the market to replace Sven Ulreich, who has signed for Bayern Munich.
It will be a major acquisition for Tottenham, who are looking to challenge for a place in the top four next season and the move will add some much needed experience at the back and will be a wholesome replacement for Lloris should he decide to leave.
Meanwhile, Daniel levy has told manager Mauricio Pochettino that he will be keeping his best players at the club next season to help bring their goals to fruition, with Harry Kane also being considered for a move to Old Trafford.
