Tottenham Hotspur are on the hunt for a new goalkeeper as they prepare to offload 36-year-old Hugo Lloris in the summer.
According to a report by Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur are all set to part ways with their club captain Hugo Lloris in the summer. The 36-year-old French goalkeeper has been a mainstay for their team for over a decade now. But it looks like his time in London is about to end.
Lloris has been a part of Tottenham since joining them back in the summer of 2012 from Lyon. The former French international has featured in 443 matches for the London club and has 151 clean sheets to his name. He has been one of their best players for almost a decade, and his performances were rewarded with club captaincy.
The French shot-stopper’s contract ends in the summer of 2024. And, the club are not interested in renewing his contract. They will be looking to offload him in the upcoming summer transfer window for a minimal fee with just over 15 months left on his contract.
Lloris has not been at his best in the ongoing season. His errors have led to goals and he has even missed quite a few games because of injuries. The World Cup winner has managed just nine clean sheets in his 27 outings and has conceded 35 goals.
Meanwhile, a lot is happening at Tottenham. Their manager Antonio Conte is likely to part ways with the club after their disappointing run in the season. And, his explosive press conference, where he blasted the players and the club, has made matters worse.
The club is trying to figure out who their next manager will be. They also have their eyes on potential signings in the summer. The club is keen on offloading Lloris, who is one of their top earners. The French shot-stopper earns around £200,000-a-week. And, letting him leave will make room for new signings at the club.
Tottenham have already started to look for a potential replacement. Dean Henderson, Wojciech Szczesny, and Andre Onana are a part of their transfer target list. While they are actively looking for a replacement, it will be interesting to see if they finally part ways with Lloris and manage to land a replacement in the summer. Getting rid of his £200,000-a-week wages should also help.
