Malenica currently plays for Croatian side Osijek and is available for as less as £1million this summer. The shot-stopper has put up some great performances and has been liked with number of clubs from Europe.
Pochettino, however, has praised the current no 1 stating “He is my captain,” Pochettino said earlier this month. “He’s one of the best keepers in the world. There’s no doubt. There’s no doubt that Hugo is one of the best and he’s going to be in the goal.
“I think Hugo is going to be, like always, great for us. He was great for us. He was so important in all that process in five years, and for sure he’s going to be one of the most important players for the future of the club too.”
At £1million, Malenica seems like an investment the club won’t regret and should not take twice before making a formal move for the player.
