Tottenham Hotspur’s Hugo Lloris (36) is set to leave the north London club after eleven years at the club, according to L’Equipe. The Nice-trained keeper is currently sidelined until the end of the season after suffering a torn tendon in Tottenham’s 6-1 humiliation at Newcastle.
The 36-year-old goalkeeper may have played his 447th and final game for Spurs that day. Le Parisien confirmed last week that the former France captain had received a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia. Lloris is under contract with Tottenham until 2024, but L’Équipe add that the Premier League outfit will allow him to consider his options.
The outlet reports that Lloris was mentally exhausted in the aftermath of the 2022 World Cup. Former Spurs manager Antonio Conte reportedly asked Lloris to return to training on December 24, just six days after France lost to France. to Argentina in the final.
Lloris reportedly has no intention of retiring, but his desire to switch clubs this summer seems definite. This could benefit Spurs as the North Londoners are in the market for a young goalkeeper. It remains to be seen whether Lloris will let himself be seduced by the riches of Saudi Arabia or try another challenge in the United States or Europe. A return to Ligue 1 is not excluded.
