Pierluigi Gollini is delighted with his move to Tottenham.
The Atalanta goalkeeper has joined on a season-long loan with the option to buy.
“This is an amazing feeling,” he told the club’s website.
“I’m very happy about this opportunity. It’s a massive club, a very good chance for me, a big chance. I’m really blessed and proud to be here. I’m so happy just to be part of this club and to join this team of great players.
“I’m young, but not too young, and I’m here to show that I can be the future of Tottenham,” he stated. “Obviously, now I’m here with Hugo and I have huge respect for him. He is a legend of this club, captain, world champion. For me, it’s a privilege, an honour to work with him and to train with him, and I’m sure I can learn a lot from him.
“When I look at this team and this group of guys, I think the squad is really, really good and I think, as a team, we have to be really ambitious. We should try to win something because it’s a big team, a big club, and winning has to be the goal.”
