Ang: Lloris threatened by the best goalkeeper in the world

Guilty of numerous errors with Tottenham, Hugo Lloris could lose his starting spot next season. Spurs are considering signing a new number 1 goalkeeper and are already working on several leads, including the one that leads to Argentinian Emiliano Martinez.

For Hugo Lloris, the situation is likely to get complicated next season. The goalkeeper and captain of Tottenham has not reassured his leaders, so much so that management is thinking of replacing him next summer. It must be said that the Frenchman has accumulated gross errors in recent months. The 36-year-old doorman is no longer as decisive and English observers do not spare him.

Lloris pushed to the exit

No one will be surprised to learn that Tottenham are already working on several avenues for his succession. The London club would particularly appreciate the profiles of Jordan Pickford (Everton), David Raya (Brentford) and Robert Sanchez (Brighton) who all play in the English league, unlike Inter Milan goalkeeper André Onana, also cited among the targets of the Spurs.

Finally, 90min understands that this shortlist also contains the name of Emiliano Martinez. Argentina’s last bastion made an impression in Qatar, where he won the 2022 World Cup and the competition’s best goalkeeper trophy. And this Monday, the Aston Villa goalkeeper added the FIFA goalkeeper of the year award to his list. Sacred references that could allow him to take a step forward within a team like Tottenham.

Moreover, the former Arsenal goalkeeper did not hide his individual ambitions. ” I want to win the Champions Leaguehe announced last February. I would like to do it with Aston Villa, but it won’t be easy because the club is still in the development phase. (…) Forced to leave to win it? We’ll see what will happen. I have the feeling that today I have the level to play in the Champions League and try to win it. Apparently, this is also the opinion of Tottenham.
