Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster has completed his medical with Tottenham Hotspur.
The 34-year-old goalkeeper’s contract at Southampton expires next month and he will move as a free agent with Tottenham to get the man he needs to replace Hugo Lloris next season.
The goalkeeper may also forget about any slim hopes for a squad for the 2022 World Cup with England scheduled for later this year, as he is not expected to spend more matches in London despite Spurs’ arrival in the Champions League.
Fraser Forster will be announced as a new Tottenham player soon. The paperwork is ready as he will join Spurs on a free transfer, he has been considered the best option on the market for a goalkeeper backup. ⚪️🤝 #THFC
