Spurs landed the Pierluigi Gollini on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy for around £13m last summer but has struggled for game time at N17 with just 10 appearances to his name this term.

In addition, Pierluigi Gollini hasn’t played a single minute in the Premier League for Tottenham and the 27-year-old will now return to Atalanta where further conversations will be held regarding his future according to Calciomercato.

Antonio Conte is expected to look elsewhere for a keeper to provide competition for Hugo Lloris with Spurs keen to sign Westbrom stopper Sam Johnstone on a free transfer in the summer.
