Spurs target ‘One of the best’ stars for Ange

Tottenham Hotspur are targeting Brentford star David Raya with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris long set to leave Spurs this summer, according to journalist Sami Mokbel.

Who can Spurs sign this summer?

Yesterday, the north Londoners finally confirmed that their protracted search for a new manager to replace Antonio Conte has finally come to an end.

Chairman Daniel Levy has appointed former Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou, who faces the almighty task of turning Spurs back into a major force.


The Australian will start work on July 1, and Levy explains exactly why he got the nod over other managerial candidates.

“Ange has a positive mentality and a fast, attacking style of play,” Levy told Tottenham’s official website.

“He has a strong track record of developing players and an understanding of the importance of the link from the academy – all of which are important to our club. We are delighted to have Ange with us as we prepare for the coming season.”

Now Spurs’ attention turns to the transfer market, with Postecoglou set to have a major influence on who they bring in this summer. The Lilywhites are believed to be chasing additions further forward, with the likes of Harvey Barnes and James Maddison attracting interest.

As well as this, Postecoglou has his eye on central defensive signings to shore up what has been a leaky Spurs defence. Tottenham could sign a new goalscorer to replace Lloris as well, with the Frenchman recently admitting he could leave.


According to The Daily Mail and reporter Mokbel, writing for the outlet, Spurs are targeting Raya from Brentford to succeed Lloris – who has been at the club for over 10 years.

The Spaniard, valued at around £40m by manager Thomas Frank, could come in to replace Lloris who, according to this report, is indeed ‘set to leave’.

Who is David Raya?

Raya has been a key player and mainstay for Brentford, particularly last campaign, having played more Premier League minutes than any of his teammates (WhoScored).

The former Blackburn Rovers star was ranked among their top five performers for 2022/2023 with members of the press, such as The Athletic’s Jay Harris, calling him “one of the best goalkeepers” in England.

Raya has been praised for its “immaculate distribution” by Harris with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp joining in and claiming he could even wear the number 10 shirt.

But despite his contract expiring in 2024, Brentford boss Frank is adamant his price tag is £40million.
