Tottenham goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini has claimed that he would stay in north London permanently if the club gave him the chance.
The Italian has spent the season on loan at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium from Serie A side Atalanta after the Spurs recruitment team decided to beef up their goalkeeping department.
The 27-year-old has only made eight appearances in all competitions for the Premier League side with Hugo Lloris still their undisputed number one.
Gollini, who has not made an appearances for Tottenham since the end of January, has been used as a cup goalkeeper while Lloris has played all of their Premier League matches this season.
The former Aston Villa goalkeeper has still been learning from his experiences this season and wants to stay if he can get more game time.
“Satisfied with the experience? It’s normal that I was hoping to play a bit more, but I knew from the beginning that I would play the cups and Lloris the league,” Gollini told the DAZN Talks podcast.
“I was playing the Conference, and we went out without having played; we had nine cases of Covid, and they didn’t let us postpone the game. Carabao? Out in the semi-final with Chelsea and then in the FA Cup, the last one, the coach decided not to do any turnover.
“I played 11 games and was lucky enough to train with Lloris. You can grow even if you don’t play, although there are things you only learn on the pitch, like the mistakes you make to improve.
“If you have the right head, even observing certain environments, you can learn. In football, as in other environments. I always thought that you have to make the best out of the situation. If you have the idea of wasting time, you always lose it.
“What future for me? I tell the truth: if I could, I would stay at Tottenham. I feel very good here; I am very attached to this group and the club.
“If they decide to keep me, I will be happy to stay. Otherwise, if we split up, I would like to go back to Italy. I love my home, the Serie A. Right now, I don’t know anything yet.”
