Mourinho eyes young German shot-stopper Nubel as Lloris successor at Spurs

first_imgIt means the veteran has not yet had a chance to show the new Spurs boss what he can do.On top of that, the almost 10 year age gap between Lloris and Nubel could be seen as another reason for Mourinho to switch things up for his North London side.Speaking on the young shot-stopper, Hatchard told talkSPORT: ”He is the captain of Schalke and a goalkeeper in his early 20s. He is a very good goalkeeper with a [Manuel] Neuer vibe about him”.2 JOSE MOURINHO has his eyes on Schalke goalkeeper Alexander Nubel as the newly appointed Tottenham manager targets a successor for current shot stopper Hugo Lloris, it’s been claimed.Despite conceding 15 goals in 12 Bundesliga matches and keeping just three clean sheets, Nubel has still managed to impress, being named captain of his current club.2 Nubel has impressed for Bundesliga side Schalke and could be a replacement for LlorisAnd it comes at the perfect time for Mourinho who is keeping close tabs on Nubel as the 23-year-old only has 12 months left on his current contract.Schalke, who sit 5th in the table, offered Nubel a new contract in the summer, but so far he has not put pen to paper.European football expert Kevin Hatchard told talkSPORT: “One little whisper that came my way on Spurs in the last few days is that they are keeping an eye on Alexander Nubel.”That interest could lead to France goalkeeper Lloris becoming one of the first casualties of the Mourinho era.The 32-year-old was struggling for form and then picked up a serious elbow injury for which he underwent surgery at the start of this month.He injured the elbow and sustained ligament damage during the Premier League game against Brighton last month.THROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himREF RAIDChampions League ref Vincic ‘arrested in raid into drugs and prostitution ring’NICE RONCristiano Ronaldo goes on family bike ride with partner Georgina Rodriguez & kidslast_img read more
