Tottenham have joined Liverpool in the chase for Nottingham Forest keeper Karl Darlow.
Hugo Lloris is the established number one at White Hart Lane, while Brad Friedel also signed a new deal at Spurs this week.But Mauricio Pochettino wants to bring in some young competition for Lloris and sees Forest stopper Darlow as the ideal candidate.
The 23-year-old impressed last season at the City Ground and could be interested in making the step up, even if there were no guarantees of first team football.
But Liverpool are also interested and could battle Spurs to sign the promising youngster.
Spurs are also interested in Cardiff keeper David Marshall, but face competition from Arsenal for the Scottish stopper.But Marshall continues to insist he is happy to continue at the Bluebirds and, at 29, would be reluctant to accept a role as back-up to Lloris.
There is interest from the like of PSG in Lloris, and it is not impossible that Spurs could turn to Marshall if the 29-year-old does depart.
But internally Tottenham remain adamant that Lloris will not be allowed to leave this summer, meaning they are strictly on the look out for someone willing to play second fiddle to the French international.
