Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has made it clear he is not currently considering an exit from the club, despite recent reports suggesting the French World cup winning captain could be on the way out of the club.
Lloris was talking to Nice-Matin when he was quizzed on a potential move back to his former side Nice, who are set to be in a strong position in the transfer market this summer due to their owner Jim Ratcliffe’s wealth.
But Lloris is clearly happy at Tottenham and not currently considering a move away.
“I follow the news of the club (Nice) a lot because I am very attached to it. I still have personal goals. For the moment, I am focused on Tottenham.
“The work done by (former goalkeeper coach) Lionel (Letizi) and (current goalkeeper coach) Nicolas (Dehon) is to be highlighted, like the good performances by Walter Benitez. The latter has largely contributed to the success of the club in recent seasons. I hope it will continue for a while.”
There has been talk in recent weeks of Tottenham considering a move for a potential replacement for Lloris.
Le10 Sport recently reported that Spurs are keen on the Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan as a potential long-term replacement for his fellow Frenchman.
CalcioMercatoWeb reported last month that AC Milan are also keeping an eye on Lloris, as they have fears over the long-term future of Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Nice, it seems, are also keen and there is no doubt that Lloris’ form for Tottenham has dipped incrementally over the past few seasons.
At the moment it would appear that Tottenham’s stopper has no intention of going nowhere. However, there is no doubt his time at the club is slowly coming to an end.
