'Don't do this': Some Spurs fans react to boss making £100k-a-week Tottenham man top transfer target
A number of Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from AS Roma Live over the weekend claiming that Jose Mourinho has made Hugo Lloris his top goalkeeper target for the transfer window.
Lloris looks to be facing an uncertain future in North London. It was previously claimed that he had rejected a new contract.
He also issued a cagey reply when asked about his future. The 34-year-old insisted that he will address his plans after the European Championships.
You could understand if Spurs fans were wondering if he may end up leaving before the window shuts.
And it appears that his former boss may be wondering a similar thing.
According to AS Roma Live, Lloris is Mourinho’s top target as Roma look for a new goalkeeper. He is also interested in Rui Patricio and Pierluigi Gollini.
‘No thanks’: Some Spurs fans hope Lloris stays amid Mourinho transfer interest
Lloris’s form has been mixed over the last couple of years. And of course, his age is not exactly his friend. He turns 35 before the end of the year.
Nevertheless, he was arguably one of Tottenham’s better players in the final weeks of last season.
So it is little surprise that some fans have implored Spurs to not let Lloris – who earns £100,000-a-week, according to Spotrac – join the Giallorossi.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the links…
Why would any player who experienced the horror of last season follow him anywhere?

IF this is true – its hardly surprising with all the activity surrounding a new manager or lack of. Levy needs to get something sorted NOW – bring some stability!
