Hugo Lloris asked if his future lies at Spurs
Hugo Lloris has issued a cagey response after being asked by Nice-Matin whether his club future still lies with Spurs.
Lloris’ future looks set to be discussed amongst the decision-makers at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium over the coming months.
As shown by Transfermarkt, his contract in North London expires in 2022.
And given that he turns 35 before the turn of the year, there is obviously likely to be some doubt about whether it is worthwhile handing him fresh terms.
That may leave some to wonder whether he could potentially leave in this window.
Of course, if Spurs want any sort of significant fee for the Frenchman, he may well have to go this summer.
Lloris was asked about whether his club future still lies with Tottenham. And while he did not offer too much of an answer, it does seem that he may not yet be sure.
“I will answer these questions once the Euro is over,” he told Nice-Matin.
Hugo Lloris’ form as season concluded leaves Spurs with a dilemma amid comments on his future
Lloris was arguably one of Tottenham’s best players in the final weeks of the season. The 34-year-old was excellent, producing a number of world-class saves.
In some ways, that form has done Spurs a favour.
It has taken some of the pressure off the club this summer as they consider his long-term replacement.
If he remains number one next year, Tottenham can be confident that he has the potential to remain one of the league’s best.
Having said that, if he is not sold this summer, it seems more than likely that he will get the chance to leave on a free next year.
Perhaps there may be scope for a short-term extension further down the line – particularly if he impresses.
But Lloris’s refusal to commit his future to Tottenham is certainly interesting.
