CalcioMercatoWeb have reported that Italian giants, AC Milan, are interested in signing Spurs goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, this summer.

This rumour comes 12 years after Lloris was first linked to AC, when L’Equipe claimed (relayed by Goal) that a four-year deal was agreed for the keeper to move from Nice to Milan. However, Lloris eventually signed for Lyon instead.

Tottenham signed Lloris from Lyon back in 2012 and the Frenchman became a key part of the transformation under Mauricio Pochettino, even becoming the club captain.

The Frenchman has now played 316 games for the Lilywhites in all competitions, as well as having 114 caps for his country under his belt, not to mention a World Cup (Wikipedia).

TransferMarkt claim that Lloris is worth around £13m in the current climate, with his contract expiring in 2022.

The 33-year-old has retained his spot since returning from injury under Jose Mourinho, despite Argentine Paulo Gazzaniga deputising efficiently in his absence.

It remains to be seen whether Spurs choose to invest in a new first-team keeper this summer, promote Gazzaniga, or keep Lloris altogether.
