Tottenham Hotspur close to agreeing personal terms with David Raya

Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of agreeing personal terms with David Raya ahead of a proposed summer move, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Spurs are in the market for a new goalkeeper and have identified Raya as a top target off the back of an excellent campaign with Brentford which saw them finish ninth.

Raya racked up the most saves (154) of any Premier League keeper last time out, while also boasting the best save percentage (75.1%).

Consequently, the Spaniard is attracting interest from several top English clubs, including Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United.

Having rejected two previous contract offers from his current employers, Raya is set to leave Brentford this summer as he aims to compete for major trophies.

“Obviously, it is nice to hear that clubs are after you and asking about you and looking for you,” Raya was quoted saying by football.london.

“These clubs are the biggest in the world and every player wants to play for these clubs. I have a year left and I don’t know what will happen in the summer.

“I have said before that I’ve had two contracts that I’ve turned down because they weren’t the offers I was looking for.


“I want to push myself to the highest level to the Champions League, the Europa League and to win those trophies. I want to experience that and I’m at that stage in my footballing career.”

Currently close to reaching an agreement on personal terms, Spurs are now at the front of the queue to land Raya but they have yet to agree a fee with Brentford.

The Bees are demanding £40 million to part ways with Raya in the upcoming transfer window and have already signed Mark Flekken from Bundesliga club Freiburg as a potential replacement.
