Lyon claim talks have progressed regarding a deal which would see goalkeeper Hugo Lloris join Tottenham.
It had previously been mentioned that a move for Lloris could happen once Spurs have cashed in on Luka Modric – which happened earlier today to the tune of £33million.
Lyon apparently want £11.9million for the French international and a deal could happen before Friday’s transfer deadline.
“The sale of Modric from Tottenham to Madrid is important, as is the amount of the transfer,” said Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas at a press conference.
“It’s true that on Sunday we had a lot of contact with Daniel Levy. Things progressed during these talks, both qualitatively and quantitatively, but nothing’s concrete yet.
“I’ve informed Hugo of these discussions. We’ll have to be a bit patient to find out.
“The decision belongs to Hugo who, I think, will be approached by Tottenham very soon. The clubs’ positions have moved closer together.”
