Tottenham keeper linked with LA Galaxy move

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini is wanted by MLS side LA Galaxy, according to the Daily Mail.

The Spurs shot-stopper has fallen down the pecking order at White Hart Lane, and the report claims he's eager to play first-team football.

The 39-year-old finds his path blocked by France international Hugo Lloris, while Brad Friedel and Heurelho Gomes also compete for first-team action.

Former-Aston Villa keeper Friedel was unseated as Tottenham's number one by Lloris earlier this season, and Cudicini and Gomes have not had a look-in under Andre Villas-Boas.

The Brazilian shot-stopper is reportedly wanted by a number of clubs in Brazil, but his high wages and £3.5m-valuation is putting off potential suitors.

Friedel has also been linked with a move away from Tottenham, with his former club Blackburn Rovers thought to be considering a bid for the 41-year-old keeper.

LA Galaxy currently have Josh Saunders in goal, but following the departure of David Beckham, are believed to be looking to bring in a bigger name.

Cudicini joined Spurs in 2009 from Chelsea, but the Italian has found first-team opportunities hard to come by, and has largely played a bit-part role in the Tottenham squad.
