Spurs and Everton linked with in-form Serie A stopper

Published Add your comment

Fiorentina goalkeeper Artur Boruc could be on his way to England this summer according to the Daily Star.

The Polish international stopper signed for La Viola last summer initially as an understudy to long-standing Serie A stalwart Sebastien Frey.

But Frey suffered serious injury early in the season, and as such Boruc was handed an extended run in the first team, impressing in his debut campaign at Stadio Artemio Franchi.

The 31-year-old star will be best remembered for his time playing for Celtic where the Pole endured a five-year tenure at Celtic Park.


His Hoops spell came to a rather abrupt end, with Boruc bowing out on 4 May 2010 making the last appearance of his Celtic career against Old Firm rivals Rangers in a 2–1 victory.

Everton and Tottenham are reportedly interested in securing the services of Boruc whose agent was seen in England this week at Wembley watching England's recent friendly against Ghana.

Raymond Sparkes is alleged to have held preliminary talks with Tottenham during his time in the capital, as Spurs boss Harry Redknapp continues his search for a reliable back-up to White Hart Lane's first choice keeper Heurelho Gomes.

Now that Boruc is back playing regular football, it is unclear at this time whether he would be willing to move to Tottenham with a view to simply warming the bench.

That paves the way for Everton and David Moyes to step up their interest in Boruc who would provide genuine competition for the number one spot with Tim Howard at Goodison Park.

Interest is high in the former Celtic stopper, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Boruc washes up on British shores once again this summer.
