Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of making their first summer signing after agreeing a £5m fee with Swansea City for Michel Vorm, according to BBC.
The goalkeeper has already agreed personal terms with his prospective employers through his agent. Both clubs are currently on tour of the USA and have negotiated a deal involving three players.
Liverpool too were believed to be interested in signing Vorm, as Brendan Rodgers was keen to add a backup for Simon Mignolet. However, the Merseyside club have reportedly switched their attention towards Fiorentina's Neto after talks with the Netherlands international broke down,
The north London club are also believed to be nearing the acquisition of Welsh left-back Ben Davies while midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson will return to the Liberty Stadium, where he spent six months on loan in 2012.
Vorm established himself as the first choice shot-stopper for the Swans since joining them from FC Utrecht in 2011. However, his future has come under a cloud following the arrival of Lukasz Fabianski from Arsenal.
The 30-year-old is thought to be unsure about being a regular in Garry Monk's starting lineup and Tottenham have utilised the opportunity to prise him away from Wales.
Their new manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to strengthen his goalkeeping department. Hugo Lloris, who recently signed a five-year deal, is the first choice keeper at White Hart Lane while veteran Brad Friedel is likely to hang up his gloves at the end of next season.
The former Southampton boss has already hinted that he is not expecting many additions to his roster before the transfer window shuts on 1 September.
"Not many. We have a very good and big squad. Last summer the club made a big effort during the window and I believe in these players. We are always looking to improve but we don't expect big change," the 42-year-old explained.
Meanwhile, Tottenham's first pre-season game against Seattle Sounders ended in a 3-3 draw courtesy of goals from Lewis Holtby, Roberto Soldado and Yago Falque. Pochettino praised his players and was happy with their performances.
"I'm happy as it was the first game of the Tour, the conditions were difficult with warm temperatures and all the players did their best. This is the time to improve and learn and I'm very pleased with all the players," the Argentinean stressed.
