Town Among Clubs Linked With Young Portuguese Keeper
Monday, 6th Jul 2020 12:59

Town, Reading and Charlton have all been linked with young Portuguese keeper Gonçalo Tabuaço.

According to Portuguese newspaper Record, the 19-year-old, capped at U17 and U18 levels, could move to English football this summer with the Blues, Royals and Addicks all said to be interested as well as clubs in his home country.

Tabuaço, claimed to be the best keeper in his age group in Portugal, played for the U23s sides of Portimonense and Beira-Mar last season having started his youth career at Porto before moving on to Paços de Ferreira and Vitória de Guimarães.

It’s reported Tabuaço's contract at the latter included a €10 million termination clause and that he impressed on trial at Leicester three years ago before a potential deal broke down.

It would be a surprise if the Blues were to look to sign another young goalkeeper without any first team experience with Harry Wright, 21, and Adam Przybek, 20, already at the club and at similar stages of their careers.

No, he's good so Evans won't buy him.

If he’s that good why has he had five clubs at such a young age?

Is this an attempt by Jay Tabb to use a pseudonym to win himself a new contract?

Not many saves needed in that video, but what awesome distribution.

Not sending out a very good message to Wright and Pryzbek.

Good to see a keeper coming off his line for a change, immediately takes the pressure off the defence!

If other clubs are after him in leagues above us why on earth would he consider a move to the first division? I think somebody is having a laugh at our expense saying he is being linked with us. A cruel joke.

Not convinced, , those u23 sides are at a low level, if he was any good he would be in Portimonense first team. Algarve blue may have a view, but unlikely for us.

We dont need a keeper

Thai blue. Of course we need a keeper. We only have one senior keeper here. Prysbek may or may not be good enough cover, and harry wright simply isnt good enough. So we def need another keeper to challenge Holy for a 1st team spot.

Blues 1 we need another keeper but not another untried youngster who hasn't played at this level before.

Get him in if we can just for the distribution alone. Counter attacks would do wonder in League 1 and is an area town are dreadful at. Players only seem to see basic passes right in front of them. Can’t be any worse at shot stopping, command of area or handling than what we have already got.
