Sky Sports journalist Michael Bridge has suggested that Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is not looking to secure a move away from the club despite the Frenchman closing in on the end of his contract.
Lloris, 34, has made 386 appearances for Spurs since joining the club in 2012, but could be set to become a free agent at the end of the season with talks of a new deal allegedly not on the table at present.
As such, the France international could be free to talk to foreign clubs over a pre-contract agreement towards the end of January with the sub-six month window on his current deal opening.
Spurs are said to be looking at replacements for Lloris should a departure ensue, with West Brom stopper Sam Johnstone and Manchester United’s Dean Henderson tabled as options to fill a potential void.
Although there are not allegedly any active talks over a fresh contract between Spurs and the long-serving goalkeeper, Bridge does not believe Lloris is looking to make a move away from N17 and feels he still looks to be at the top of his game in goal.
He told GiveMeSport: “It doesn’t sound like he’s making any moves to go elsewhere, and he looks fit, agile.”

Lloris hasn’t looked like he is slowing down despite his age, but the contract situation is a bit of an issue. Spurs should at least test the waters and see what he is after or what his next thoughts are so they can sort out an adequate replacement if need be.
