He said: “I can define myself as an attacking keeper. It’s a different way to see the role but I’m happy with this. The coach told me the keeper is so important with his attacking mentality.
“It’s a position with big responsibilities because if you make a mistake it’s 99% likely to be a goal. I love this responsibility.”
Postecoglou remains heavily linked with moves for Kyogo and Reo Hatate while Cameron Carter-Vickers has also been suggested as a target.
The London side have today fended off overtures for their star striker Harry Kane, who Postecoglou wants to keep in North London despite him only having a year left on his contract.
