Atalanta goalkeeper completes season-long loan with option for permanent transfer

Tottenham Hotspur have made their first summer signing, with goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini arriving from Italian club Atalanta.

The 26-year-old Italy international has agreed a season-long loan and Spurs have an option to make the transfer permanent.

"It's an amazing feeling, I'm very happy for this massive opportunity," Gollini told the club's official website.

"I'm here with Hugo [Lloris]...he is a legend of this club. It's a privilege and an honour to work with him. I'm sure I can learn a lot from him.

"It's a big chance for me to show myself in the Premier League and I just can't wait."

Gollini made 119 Serie A appearances in total with Verona and Atalanta, keeping nine clean sheets in 25 top-flight outings last season.

He also played in three UEFA Champions League matches last term, achieving shutouts in two of those, against Liverpool and Ajax.
