Tottenham Hotspurs are hoping to tie goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to a new contract soon. Hugo Lloris is nearing his 35th birthday and his current contract expires at the end of the season, and as a result, the Spurs were considering their long-term future on goal.
Pierluigi Gollini has been signed on a summer loan to replace Lloris – something that looks small and unlikely to happen at any time – and new manager Antonio Conte has been offered the chance to move to Everton’s Jordan Pickford in the summer.
There is a clear indication that Lloris’ time at the top of the game is limited, but according to The Athletic, Hotspurs or Lloris do not believe he should drop a point at the moment.
Over the past few months, there have been closing and closing talks to see if both sides are interested in expanding and it has become clear that both parties want the same thing, so negotiations are expected to intensify in the coming weeks.
No informal agreement has been reached, but Hotspurs are not expected to face many difficulties to convince the goalkeeper to sign.
Lloris’ willingness to sign up is a testament to the work done by new manager Antonio Conte. The Frenchman was open to leaving last summer and considered a move to Roman, worried that the Spurs had relied too much on him and striker Harry Kane.
However, things have changed now and Lloris is happy with Spurs’ stay in what could be another temporary deal, Spurs are well aware that the stopper is not bringing the current sale price to his job.
As for Hugo Lloris, he plans to play for his hometown of Nice before hanging his gloves on but believes he has only a few years left in the tank and has not considered such a change yet.
