Hugo Lloris is unlikely to leave Tottenham this summer, according to Football London.
The club captain will have just one year left on his contract going into next season, and at 34 years of age some clubs would be looking to cash in.
Not Spurs, though, apparently. Football London’s Alasdair Gold claims Lloris is ‘expected to remain at Spurs’ this summer for a number of reasons.
For one thing, Lloris isn’t expected to try and force an exit, meaning Tottenham will be able to focus on other transfer priorities without dealing with a potentially unhappy player.
Secondly, the report says Spurs are unlikely to receive a big offer the Frenchman, meaning there is almost no reason to sell him – he may as well be allowed to run down his contract and leave on a free.
The alternative is that he will sign a new short-term deal, and Tottenham are said to be open to the possibility of that happening.
Which means Lloris’ future is seemingly in his own hands. In any case, Spurs really should be looking for a long-term replacement.
