Hugo Lloris reportedly an AC Milan target

Hugo Lloris very nearly replaced Dida at AC Milan back in 2008.

AC Milan are reportedly interested in a deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the summer, according to reports. 

Le10 Sport recently suggested that Tottenham have their eyes on Lille stopper Mike Maignan for the summer and that Jose Mourinho was willing to move the French international on as a consequence. 

It comes amid some poor form from the World Cup winner this season, with plenty of Tottenham fans believing the time might have come for Lloris to be replaced. 

Now, according to CalcioMercatoWeb, AC Milan see Lloris as a potential replacement for Gianluigi Donnarumma, who has been linked with moves to Everton and PSG recently.

If Lloris were to head to the San Siro it would finally conclude a transfer story that started over 12 years ago. As reported by L’Equipe, and relayed by Goal, Milan had seemingly agreed a four-year deal for Lloris to join the Rossoneri from Nice in 2008. He was eyed as the perfect replacement for the fading Dida but Lloris eventually ended up at Lyon in a reported (UEFA) €8.5 million (£7m) deal.

 

Milan’s vice-president Adriano Galliani later stated the inability to shift Christian Abbiati to Palermo prevented the move, as reported by Goal, stating that Lloris was ‘practically ours’. 

Lloris later stated he decided on Lyon as he was guaranteed more playing time in France and felt the club had better European ambitions, as reported by Sky Sports.

Now, 12 years down the line, it seems Lloris could finally end up at Milan as Tottenham begin to look beyond the Frenchman between the sticks.
