Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is all set to leave the North London club at the end of the season.
According to Football Insider, Hugo Lloris has a jaw-dropping offer from Saudi Arabia. And the 36-year-old goalkeeper is set to move on in the summer, with Tottenham prepared to let him leave.
The French goalkeeper has been quite error-prone this season, and his performances have cost his side valuable points. Tottenham needed to replace him at the end of the season, and the fact that he is leaving this summer could prove to be a blessing in disguise.
There is no doubt that Lloris has been an exceptional servant for Tottenham since joining them 11 years ago. The former World Cup winner has kept 151 clean sheets in 447 appearances at the club, and he is undoubtedly a Tottenham legend. However, Spurs must look to bring in a goalkeeper who is younger and has more quality this summer.
It has been a dismal campaign for Tottenham, and they are set to miss out on Champions League qualification. Furthermore, they are currently without a permanent manager. It remains to be seen whether Tottenham can address the problems during the summer break and get things in order before the start of the new campaign.
As far as the replacement for Lloris is concerned, Tottenham have been linked with a number of players in recent months. David Raya, Jordan Pickford, and Gavin Bazunu are some of the names that have been linked with a move to the North London club.
All three players have done well in the Premier League with their respective clubs and could prove to be quality long-term acquisitions. Meanwhile, the report from Football Insider claims that Lloris has offers from elite European clubs as well. But a Saudi Arabian outfit has tabled a jaw-dropping proposal.
It remains to be seen whether the 36-year-old is prepared to continue in Europe or move to Saudi Arabia in search of a new challenge. The 36-year-old is at the twilight stage of his career and a lucrative contract could prove to be hard to turn down.
