Hugo Lloris has responded to rumours that he could leave Tottenham this summer and return to France, more specifically his former club, Nice.
The Frenchman has been with Tottenham for over ten years now, and has been captain of the club since 2015.
Lloris is one of many Spurs stars who has endured a difficult season this year. His poor form and injury issues have seen him miss large portions of the campaign and he will not be fit enough to play the final two games this term.
It is well known that Spurs are looking to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer amid reports Lloris will not be staying at the club beyond this season (Evening Standard).
The 36-year-old’s current contract runs until 2024. A recent report from The Times, however, claimed Lloris will be offered a lucrative move to Saudi Arabia this summer, in a deal which could triple his current wages.
According to The Athletic, that isn’t the only offer Lloris will have to consider this summer.
“I can’t speak about concrete things. The club has to finish the season first, there are two goalkeepers of high quality, including one that I’m good friends with in Kasper Schmeichel.
“You can understand that it’s difficult to speak about these kinds of subjects. I’ll let fate handle things.”

It will be sad to see Hugo Lloris leave the club after so long without winning a trophy. He becomes the latest in a long line of players who deserved to be a part of a winning Spurs side, but were perhaps let down by a lack of funding and faith from above.
