Tottenham Hotspur do not plan to buy a new first-choice goalkeeper this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
Hugo Lloris’ ability has been called into question over the last couple of seasons after a string of high-profile, costly errors for club and country.
The Frenchman was at fault for Liverpool’s winner against Spurs on Sunday, palming the ball onto the shin of Toby Alderweireld who was unfortunate to score an own goal.
In a press conference on Tuesday, Mauricio Pochettino confirmed Lloris will keep his place between the sticks against Crystal Palace, insisting the World Cup winner remains one of the best goalkeepers on the planet.
But there have been calls for Paulo Gazzaniga to be given a run in the team as Lloris continues to make mistakes.
However, the Mail claims Pochettino will not enter the market for a new first-choice goalkeeper in the upcoming transfer window.
It’s certainly a difficult situation. Lloris’ all-round ability can’t be questioned, but he has simply made too many errors of late, particularly in big games.
Pochettino will keep faith in the former Lyon star next term, but it’s time for the club to start looking for a long-term successor.
