Tottenham are believed to be considering a summer move for Osasuna goalkeeper Andres Fernandez as they attempt to find back-up for current number one Hugo Lloris.

The Daily Express has reported that Tottenham are weighing up the idea of making a £6.8million offer at the end of the season as they look to find a younger alternative to back-up stopper Brad Friedel.

The 41-year-old recently signed a new deal that keeps him at the club until the summer of 2014 but it appears as though Tottenham still want to bring in a new keeper after Carlo Cudicini made the move to LA Galaxy.

With Heurelho Gomes being loaned to German outfit Hoffenheim, there is a belief that the Brazilian will also be looking to secure a permanent move away from Tottenham in the summer.

That would leave Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas short of cover and it seems he has already decided to try and convince Osasuna to part with their long serving keeper.

Fernandez has been with the Spanish side since 2007 and last season appeared in all 38 league games as he helped the club secure an impressive seventh place finish.

The 26-year-old has never played for his country and has only recently managed to make the number shirt his own at Osasuna after playing second fiddle for a number of years to veteran Asier Riesgo.

However, he has played all 22 league games this season and may well be thinking about the chance to play for a bigger club as Osasuna are currently struggling at the wrong end of the table just one point above the relegation zone.

The Express reports that Manchester City are also considering Fernandez as back-up for Manchester City but Tottenham have made the first move by sending a scout to watch him in action.
