Not getting any younger and out of contract in the summer, this could very well be Hugo Lloris’ last season at Tottenham Hotspur.
Bought from Lyon in 2012, the 35-year-old has since made 392 appearances for the club, conceding 439 gaols and keeping 133 clean sheets.
He will likely surpass the 400 game mark before the end of the season, and once that’s done, he could return to where it all started for him: OGC Nice.
Born in the French city, the Tottenham goalkeeper began his professional career with the Ligue 1 side, and Foot Mercato claim they want to ‘repatriate’ him.
It’s said they ‘want to recuperate Lloris next summer, when he’ll be free’, and where he would replace Walter Benitez, who could also end up finding himself a new club.
They add that the Tottenham star ‘is interested by the idea of returning’ to his childhood club, with the whole negotiations set to ‘considerably move forward from Saturday’, when the doors of the January transfer window open.
That being said, Lloris would certainly stay with Spurs until the end of his contract.
