It’s been claimed that Spurs have been tracking Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris throughout the summer but with the sale of Luka Modric, the chase could be nearing its end. The French club are the ones to suggest that a transfer could be imminent.
“The sale of Modric from Tottenham to Madrid is important, as is the amount of the transfer,” said Lyon’s Chairman Jean-Michel Aulas.
“It’s true that on Sunday we had a lot of contact with Daniel Levy. Things progressed during these talks, both qualitatively and quantitatively, but nothing’s concrete yet.
“I’ve informed Hugo of these discussions. We’ll have to be a bit patient to find out.
“The decision belongs to Hugo who, I think, will be approached by Tottenham very soon. The clubs’ positions have moved closer together.”
The fee quoted is in the region of £15m and many are claiming that all had been agreed and that the only thing that remains is a decision from the player as to whether he will cross the channel.
It seems that AVB has made his mind up on Brad Friedel but if Lloris stays where he is, do Spurs have enough time to line up any alternatives?
