TuttoMercatoWeb have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur will open talks with Hugo Lloris regarding a new contract in January.
Despite Lloris being in impressive form over the last few years, the Tottenham captain is now into the final year of his contract at the club.
Lloris told L’Equipe last month that Tottenham remains his priority for the moment and he will have discussions with the club over his future ‘in the coming weeks’.
However, reports over recent weeks have suggested that Spurs are on the lookout for the Frenchman’s long-term successor, with the likes of Ajax’s Andre Onana and Everton’s Jordan Pickford thought to be on the North London club’s radar.
When asked about Lloris’ contract situation in his press conference on Friday, Antonio Conte did not give much away, simply insisting that he considers the 34-year-old to be ‘an important player’.
According to TMW’s update, Tottenham plan on opening talks with their skipper over a one-year extension in the ‘first weeks of January’.
The report explains that the decision on whether he wants to continue at Spurs will then come down to Lloris.
It is alleged that Tottenham will move for the likes of Pickford if they fail to reach an agreement with the experienced goalkeeper.
Spurs Web Opinion
Hugo has shown tremendous loyalty to Spurs over the years and so, there is no reason to think that he will not sign an extension if it is offered.
The only potential contention could be that the 34-year-old might think that he could get a two or three-year contract at a Ligue 1 club.
