Report: Jose Mourinho is eyeing a late deal for experienced Spurs player

TuttoMercatoWeb have claimed that Jose Mourinho is considering the idea of bringing Hugo Lloris to AS Roma before the transfer window closes.

With Ange Postecoglou seemingly ruling out the prospect of Lloris staying in N17 as an understudy to Guglielmo Vicario (Football.London), the former Tottenham captain is searching for a new club before Friday evening’s transfer deadline.

The Frenchman’s proposed move to Lazio collapsed last week, with reports indicating that the 36-year-old did not want to be the number two for Maurizio Sarri’s side (Fabrice Hawkins).

Move to Roma on the cards for Hugo Lloris

TMW have now claimed that Lloris could still end up at the Stadio Olimpico, with Lazio’s local rivals, Roma, said to be eyeing a move for the experienced goalkeeper.

The report states that over the last few days, Mourinho has thought about bringing the Spurs star to the Italian capital to work alongside Rui Patricio.

However, it is claimed that the Roma hierarchy are yet to be fully convinced by the idea, with the Giallorossi said to be currently focused on getting a deal for Romelu Lukaku over the line.

Spurs Web Opinion

Patricio is now 35 years of age and so Lloris might perhaps fancy his chances of competition with the Portuguese goalkeeper more than he did against Ivan Provedel, who is going to be Lazio’s undisputed number one. So, this rumour might actually have some legs.
