The French international has missed 103 days due to injury, his longest absence due to injury. This has led to him missing 20 games for Tottenham this season.
Barring a few errors, Paulo Gazzaniga has done relatively well in the Frenchman’s absence. The Argentine will most probably make way for Lloris as Jose Mourinho would seek to add the veteran’s leadership to a leaky Spurs defence.
The goalkeeper’s return will add to the leadership qualities further diminished by the loss of Harry Kane. Spurs have one of the worst defensive records in the league. The Spurs manager has commented on the goalkeeper’s availability and has stated that he expected Lloris to return to action in February.
“If you ask me late February or early February, at this moment I go more for early. Things are going well. He’s getting his confidence back, he’s training so I would say he’s one of our new players in the January transfer window.”
Lloris has gone on to make 307 appearances for Tottenham since moving to the club in 2012. He is widely considered to be one of the world’s best goalkeepers and also captained France to World Cup glory in 2018.
