Pierluigi Gollini returns to Atalanta after Tottenham loan ends

Pierluigi Gollini has returned to parent club Atalanta at the end of his loan spell at Tottenham.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper was on loan for the season from the Serie A side but, as a substitute for France captain Hugo Lloris, he only made 10 appearances, most recently in January.

Spurs, who were under an obligation to sign Gollini permanently if he met certain criteria on loan, said in a statement: “We can confirm the departure of Pierluigi Gollini following the end of his loan spell from Atalanta.

“The goalkeeper joined us last July for the duration of the 2021/22 season and made 10 appearances for us.

“We thank Pierluigi for his service and wish him good luck for the future.”

Spurs have a replacement lined up as they have agreed a deal for Fraser Forster, who will join the club on a free transfer at the end of his contract at Southampton.

Forster was at the club’s training base to undergo a medical last week and the PA news agency understands the deal will be announced soon.

The North London club have started the summer in an active fashion, having already announced the signing of Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.

The 33-year-old joins Inter Milan on a free transfer, signing a two-year contract.
