Illan Meslier is among those seen as a viable replacement for Lloris, but the Frenchman has plenty of suitors in the market. Tottenham would have preferred to sign the Leeds United star, but they will have to pay a huge transfer fee, mainly if the Yorkshire side avoids relegation.

Sevilla’s Yassine Bounou is also an option, but reports suggest Spurs have agreed on a deal for 24-year-old goalkeeper Altay Bayindir. The Fenerbahce star’s contract expires in the summer, meaning, Tottenham will have signed a talented, young keeper.

Bayindir is one of the top talents coming out of Turkey, where he’s a regular for Fenerbahce. He also takes steady strides toward becoming the No.1 for the national side, and hence Spurs will consider him as a direct replacement for Lloris.

In the initial season, the 24-year-old goalkeeper could play understudy to the veteran goalkeeper. He could become their undisputed No.1 for years to come if he succeeds in the Premier League.

Alternatively, he could become an alternative to a first-choice star. Irrespective of the agreed-upon deal, Tottenham could sign an established, Premier League-proven goalkeeper to replace Lloris and add some depth with Bayindir.
