Tottenham Hotspur will reportedly announce the signing of Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.
Fabrizio Romano and Sky Sports report that a £ 13million buy option loan deal has been negotiated for the 26-year-old Italian.
Under the terms of the deal, Gollini will be leased for the 2021-2022 season with the option of extending the lease or outright purchase of a goalkeeper.

Fabio Paratici, newly appointed football director of Tottenham, was believed to have been actively involved in completing the move.
Gollini spent two years at Manchester United from 2012 to 2014 as a youth player before joining Hellas Verona.
He returned to England in 2016 with the then championship team Aston Villa, playing 20 times over two seasons before returning to Italy again via Atalanta in January 2017.
The loan eventually became open-ended in 2018, and a year later, Gollini made his Italian debut for Roberto Mancini’s team.
The late substitution allowed him to replace Gianluigi Donnaruma against Bosnia and Herzegovina in November 2019, 3-0.
Gollini is set to join the end of a strong season with Atalanta with 12 clean sheets in 32 games.
Two of those lockouts were against Liverpool and Ajax in the Champions League, and Cristiano Ronaldo’s 1-1 draw to Juventus is sure to be another personal highlight of the season.
Sky Sports also said Spurs asked Atalanta about the presence of Argentine center-back Christian Romero, although a deal is clearly unlikely.
