Hugo Lloris, the goalkeeper for Tottenham Hotspur, is expected to pique the interest of Saudi Arabian clubs once more during the January transfer window.


For ten years, the Frenchman was among the first names on the roster at Spurs, but he hasn’t been given much of a chance since Ange Postecoglou joined in the summer. It’s now just a matter of time till he departs from Tottenham.

Saudi Arabian clubs are vying to recruit Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris.

Hugo Lloris has been at Tottenham since arriving in the summer of 2012 after leaving Olympique Lyon.


During his greatest years at Spurs, the Frenchman was among the top goalkeepers in Europe, and he was a major contributor to the team’s successes under Mauricio Pochettino.


Over the past few years, Lloris’ performance has steadily declined, and at the conclusion of the previous campaign, it was evident that Tottenham needed to sign an improvement.


Guglielmo Vicario entered the game and has maybe been their best summer acquisition.


Lloris has not played a single minute since the beginning of this season as a result of it, and he has been dropped from the team.


January is probably when he moves out, and according to The Sun this week, ‘clubs in Saudi Arabia are beginning to circle’ to sign him when the window opens the following week.

Lloris must depart from Tottenham.

Hugo Lloris cannot return to Tottenham; that much is evident.


The Frenchman is so low on Ange Postecoglou’s pecking order that he cannot even be on the bench; Fraser Forster is ahead of him.


All parties would benefit from a move out in January, and we wouldn’t be shocked if Tottenham agreed to let him go for free in order to remove his £100,000-a-week salary (Spotrac) from the books for the following six months.


Newcastle United have also been linked with a move to sign Lloris, so it will be interesting to see where he’ll end up if he does leave next month.
