With Julio Cesar part of Mark Hughes’ real life game of football manager, it seems that Tottenham’s goalkeeping options are now down to just one target. If the papers are to be believed, Lyon’s Hugo Lloris has been priority number one throughout the summer but with time running out, can Spurs afford to lose out on the signing?
Various reports started to emerge yesterday suggesting that a fee had been agreed and that this would be the next confirmed signing after the Dembele deal. However, according to our old friends over at the Daily Mail, the transfer has hit a snag.
The Mail suggest that Lloris himself is undecided on a move and that he is a little unhappy with the terms on offer. If this falls through, will we pay the penalty for having all our keeping eggs in one basket?
It seems certain that Brad Friedel would remain as first choice but are his speed and reflexes up to it? In any potential absence, 38 year old Carlo takes over while Heurelho Gomes continues to lurk at the back of the picture.
The Lloris deal may still be on but could this be our most important transfer chase this summer?
