Tottenham Hotspur are likely to be after a goalkeeper this summer and have already been linked with big-money moves for both Andre Onana and Mike Maignan, while Hugo Lloris is wanted by another side – and such a move could help Chelsea.
Ajax goalkeeper Onana has long been linked with a move to Spurs, as the general consensus surrounding 33-year-old World Cup winner Lloris being that his quality is starting to decline. The former Lyon ace is now being linked with a move.
Indeed, Spurs are also said to be after Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan. Lloris, then, looks destined to leave Spurs this summer as Jose Mourinho orchestrates a summer overhaul – and Italian outlet CalcioMercatoWeb claim AC Milan want Lloris.
Milan are said to be after a goalkeeper themselves with doubts surrounding the future of academy product Gianluigi Donnarumma. Gazzetta Dello Sport claim Chelsea want the £47million-rated star to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.
With Chelsea keen to sign the Italy international, Milan will want to buy a replacement before sanctioning his big-money exit and that could see Spurs help The Blues get a deal for Donnarumma over the line.
If Mourinho – who has managed Chelsea on two occasions – green lights a move for Lloris to move to Serie A and join Milan, that surely hands Chelsea a boost in their pursuit of Donnarumma. Milan will be much more inclined to sell, with Lloris signed.
Mourinho and Spurs, then, could help Chelsea solve a problem area this summer, and land Donnarumma.
