Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is being linked with a move to AC Milan this summer as the World Cup winner begins to enter the latter stages of his career – and Spurs fans have suggested a swap deal if Milan are to land the Frenchman.
According to CalcioMercatoWeb, Milan want to raid Tottenham for 33-year-old goalkeeper Lloris with Spurs set to bring in a replacement for the ex-Lyon this man. The general consensus is that Lloris’ form has deteriorated over the past few years.
Ajax stopper Andre Onana has been strongly linked with a move to the north London club this summer, but Spurs are likely to face competition from Chelsea. Indeed, the Blues are also looking for a new goalkeeper.
Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer continues to be linked with Stamford Bridge, while Spurs are said to have opened talks with Lloris’ France teammate Mike Maignan – who at just 24 is starring for Lille.
With Milan keen on Lloris, then, it clears the way for Chelsea to perhaps go after another of their reportedly shortlisted goalkeepers. Gazzetta Dello Sport claim Chelsea want Donnarumma with Milan looking for around £47million.
However, Spurs fans have gone one better and using Milan’s interest in Lloris, supporters of the north London have club have suggested on Twitter that Daniel Levy pursues a swap deal of some sort to bring Donnarumma to Spurs.
Swap. Done. Dusted. Next please.

Love Hugo but he’s at the right time to sell him. Swap plus cash for Donnarumma would be a great deal ??
