After more than 10 years of dedication to Tottenham, Hugo Lloris clearly feels that the time has come for him to leave. This was further boosted when Spurs signed potential goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli.
Realizing the opportunity, PSG approached Lloris. There are many reasons for the French giants to want a 36-year-old goalkeeper. Firstly, Lloris will fill the role of backup goalkeeper for Gianluigi Donnarumma, after Keylor Navas insisted on leaving. Second, Lloris will be counted as a “homegrown” player of PSG, thereby not losing any more home-grown places in the Champions League list.
However, the problem is that Tottenham do not want to lose Lloris. The former France goalkeeper still has one year left on his contract, and Spurs want around £15m in compensation. Meanwhile, PSG wants Tottenham to create conditions for Lloris to leave on a free basis.
Currently, Lloris’s representative is in London to discuss with Tottenham’s leadership. However, the PSG side is somewhat apprehensive when the position of chairman Daniel Levy on this is extremely tough.
