Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris’ current contract with Tottenham is valid until June 2022, which means the player can already sign at no cost to any other team from January. The renewal of the 35-year-old Frenchman is yet to be consecrated, but coach Antonio Conte believes the goalkeeper will remain in the squad for next season.
? Hugo is a Tottenham player, and he is the captain of the team. He will definitely talk to the club to try and find a solution. Am I calm about it? Conti said.
Despite the positive expectations of the Tottenham coach, the British press has already confirmed that the club’s board of directors has other priorities. In addition, the renewal of the option available for the position of goalkeeper is part of the managers’ plans. Sportsmail revealed last month that Tottenham were turning to West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnston.
Moreover, Lloris’ return to French football is out of the question. The goalkeeper has already been positioned as a potential booster for the Nice club he revealed to football. Lloris also spent time at Lyon before hitting Tottenham in the 2012/13 season. Although he has nothing new in the goalkeeper position, Conte expects reinforcements in other sectors.
? Absolutely (hopefully for reinforcements). Just two weeks later I said we needed to improve the quality of this team and we definitely do. I’ve already made an assessment of who I can count on and who I can’t. Is the difference too big and do we need to work hard and try to build and improve our team? Conti evaluation.
Tottenham will return to the field on Saturday (01), at 12 noon (GMT), when they visit Watford, for the 21st round of the Premier League. The team is currently ranked sixth in the competition with 30 points.
