Tottenham are likely to offer Hugo Lloris a new contract soon, according to reports.
Last month we relayed praise from many Spurs fans after Lloris finished the season strongly. The Frenchman was labelled “underrated” and “the true player of the season” following an impressive string of displays from the Premier League’s restart to the end of the campaign.
And now it looks like the Londoners will reward Lloris with an extension to his current deal, which ends in the summer of 2022.
ESPN and the very reliable Fabrizio Romano both claim talks over a new contract are set to take place between Spurs and Lloris, with the club set to bolster its goalkeeping set-up further with the arrival of free agent Joe Hart.
Hart will join Paulo Gazzaniga as back-up for Lloris following the departure of Michel Vorm – the Dutchman’s contract expired last month.
Tottenham would be wise to be looking for a long-term replacement for Lloris, who turns 34 later this year. But for now, tying down the captain is a logical bit of business.
