Hugo Lloris is still at Tottenham Hotspur after having expressed his desire to seek a move away from the north London club this summer.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito was keen on bringing the goalkeeper to the Serie A side. Two days ago, journalist Fabrice Hawkins reported the 36-year-old had refused the offer from the Italian club.

Lazio sporting director Angelo Fabiani has dismissed Hawkins’ claim and his comments are relayed by Cittaceleste.

“Lloris was an opportunity, but nobody said no to us. We played around a bit, as is often done on the transfer market,” he said.

According to Cittaceleste, Maurizio Sarri’s side are working on signing Salernitana’s Luigi Sepe to provide cover and competition to Ivan Provedel.

The Biancocelesti presented their new signings, Daichi Kamada, Gustav Isaksen and Valentín Castellanos, to the media on Thursday.

Fabiani also spoke to the reporters, where he was quizzed about the Tottenham star and Lazio’s goalkeeping situation. TuttoMercatoWeb have relayed the additional quotes from the director.

“There are operations that we try to get through at all costs. We are satisfied to have hired an excellent goalkeeper with moderate experience in Serie A, there are no regrets about players who didn’t come because nobody said ‘no’ to Lazio,” Fabiani explained.

Spurs summer signing Guglielmo Vicario is the first-choice stopper for Ange Postecoglou. Lloris’ deal is until 2024 and if he fails to find a new club soon, the Frenchman would have to settle for a backup role at Tottenham.
