Tottenham Hotspur believe that Hugo Lloris is likely to still be at the club once again next season, according to Football London journalist Alasdair Gold.
There looks to be some doubt over Lloris’s future in North London. The 34-year-old has arguably not been at his best for some time.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this week that he is one of the players who could be offered the chance to leave this summer. Mauricio Pochettino reportedly wants the Frenchman at Paris Saint-Germain.
However, it appears that Spurs may expect Lloris to remain between the sticks next season.
According to Gold, there is a belief that Lloris is likely to stay. In fact, it is suggested that Tottenham are also open to offering him a new contract.
TBR View: Spurs probably right to prioritise other areas ahead of signing a new goalkeeper
Unfortunately, it appears that Tottenham may need to make a number of additions this summer. However, as noted by the Mail, their ability to spend will depend on which players they can sell.
So it is probably right to prioritise other areas of the squad. Lloris has shown glimpses of what he can do recently. He has made a couple of world-class saves in the last couple of games.
Ideally, Spurs would be able to find his long-term successor before they are potentially rushed into a decision when his current deal expires next summer.
But if they have little room to manoeuvre in the market, sticking with Lloris may not be the worst decision.
