Tottenham are set to sign goalkeeper Pau Lopez on loan after verbally agreeing a deal with Espanyol, reports Sport.
Spurs will fork out €600,000 to sign the 21-year-old on a short-term basis, while they will have option to secure his services on a permanent basis for a fee of €7m.
Pau Lopez’s contract at Espanyol expires in 2018, but talks over a new deal stalled earlier this summer.
Mauricio Pochettino is said to be keen to bring him to White Hart Lane in the aftermath of Lloris’ injury, which has ruled out the Spurs skipper for four weeks, and also as further competition for Michel Vorm, who is currently the second choice at Tottenham
Pau Lopez made 38 appearances in all competitions last season keeping seven clean sheets, and has also been called up to the senior national team for a friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Pau Lopez has been at Espanyol since he was 12 years old
