Tottenham Hotspur welcomed back Hugo Lloris to the starting line-up in mid-week, as the Frenchman played his first match under new head coach Jose Mourinho.

Lloris picked up a dislocated elbow back in October while playing against Brighton and Paulo Gazzaniga had filled in for the captain ever since.

However, the Argentine dropped down to the bench again on Wednesday as Spurs defeated Norwich City 2-1 at home.

Despite having two good keepers at the club already, Spurs have reportedly been offered a chance to sign PSG shot stopped Alphonse Areola.

Parisfans claim that the 26-year-old was offered to Tottenham by PSG as a potential long-term successor to Lloris.

Areola is currently on loan at Real Madrid, but is playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois in Spain, and apparently has now future with PSG.

Spurs and PSG have a good transfer relationship of late, with the Lilywhites taking Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura in recent years.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I think it will be a couple more years before Spurs will be looking for a new keeper, and money simply must be spent in other areas first, such as central defence, full-back, and up front.
