Antonio Conte has revealed there will be time for him to talk to Hugo Lloris about the goalkeeper’s contract situation but, for now, they are concentrating on doing their best on the pitch.

The Frenchman has under one year remaining on his current deal in North London and would be available to leave on a free transfer in the summer of 2022.

Some sources have reported that Tottenham want to offer the World Cup-winner an extension to his contract in order to extend his ten-season stay.

Meanwhile, Hugo Lloris himself admitted recently that he expects to hold talks with the club about his contract situation in the near future.

Conte was keen to point out that he had only been in North London for around a month and he has many different problems to solve.

However, he clearly holds great respect for Lloris and a conversation will be held in the near future about what comes next for the Tottenham captain.

Conte said (Football London): “Yeah but I’ve just arrived. Only one month. At this moment, for sure, we have many situations to solve.

“Hugo is the captain of this team, captain of France and we’re talking about a top goalkeeper. He’s very focused now.

“He knows very well now we’re trying to do our best. Me as a coach, Hugo as the goalkeeper and every player has to perform at high level, but for sure we’ll have time to speak about him and I consider him an important player for his experience.

“He’s a good goalkeeper first of all and many years at the club, he showed always great commitment for this club.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

I fully expect a two-year extension to be signed. Lloris will likely stay for a couple more years and I think Gollini will go back to Atalanta, with Spurs opting for a free back-up like Sam Johnstone instead, who is also homegrown.
