After failing to secure a move away from the club during the main transfer window, it seems Hugo Lloris could now swap Tottenham Hotspur for Saudi Arabia.

Hugo Lloris had been a key player for Tottenham for over a decade, and club captain for eight years, but that time is at an end now.

Poor form and injury troubles saw Lloris replaced by Fraser Forster in the backend of last season. Then, this summer, the arrival of Guglielmo Vicario sealed Lloris’ fate.

It was well-documented that Spurs were keen to sell Lloris this summer as there was no place in Ange Postecoglous squad for the 36-year-old.

However, moves to Lazio (L’Equipe) and Newcastle United (The Times) fell through due to the Frenchman’s reluctance to be a second-choice goalkeeper.

An offer from his former club Nice came late on deadline day, but Lloris also rejected this approach. The player himself said he turned this proposal down as he wasn’t given an idea of a ‘clear sporting project’ (Nice-Matin).

Is Lloris heading to Saudi Arabia?

Now, Lloris could be the latest player to move to Saudi Arabia. The transfer window there is open until September 7, allowing Premier League clubs to sell players there despite the English window being closed.

According to sources at Football Insider, Lloris is now “frozen out” at Tottenham and could find his next club in Saudi Arabia, or Turkey. The transfer window for the latter remains open until September 15.

It is believed Lloris “could now see options open” in either of those nations.

Tottenham just sent Tanguy Ndombele on loan to Galatasaray in Turkey, while Davinson Sanchez made the same move on a permanent deal.

Spurs Web Opinion

Hugo Lloris really has to leave the club in the next week or so, otherwise, he will rot in the reserves for months, and he deserves better than that. A move to Turkey would not be bad at all. Maybe he could even join Galatasaray and play alongside Davinson Sanchez.
