This week has been notable for the lack of goalkeepers linked with Spurs and the only stories on that subject seemed to suggest that the club had withdrawn their interest in Lyon’s Hugo Lloris.
However, suggestions today claim that the French number one is our main target and that this is a man that AVB tried to sign while he was in charge at Chelsea.
It is widely accepted that the stalling point is the transfer fee with Lyon quoted as wanting something approaching £16m with Spurs coming in at around £4m less.
However, rather than withdraw as some are suggesting, it’s now claimed that Daniel Levy is sticking with it in an attempt to thrash something out.
Some are even expecting a deal to be announced ‘imminently’ but whether that’s true or not, it does suggest that a new keeper is still a major priority.
