Tottenham adamant Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli will not leave in January
According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are adamant that first-team stars Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli will not leave the club in the January transfer window amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain.
The French champions have announced former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager after having sacked Thomas Tuchel earlier this week. And, with the Argentine taking over the reins, it seems like he is eyeing a raid on his former club for two players.
Tottenham captain and first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has emerged as a target for PSG. The 34-year-old has been with us since 2012, having arrived from Olympique Lyon. He has grown into one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.
However, Lloris’ contract is up for expiry in eighteen months and PSG are hoping to capitalise on his situation.
As far as Alli is concerned, the 24-year-old has been on PSG’s radar since the summer transfer window. Indeed, the Parisian outfit had three separate loan offers rejected for the England international in the summer last year. However, they are set to make another approach for him in the current campaign, as per the report.
Considering that Alli has been struggling for game-time under Jose Mourinho, it is claimed that he would be open to a move as he eyes a new challenge in his career. Tottenham, though, are insistent that the duo will be going nowhere in the January transfer window.

Given Lloris’ importance to the team, Spurs’ stance on the goalkeeper is very much understandable. However, with Alli being reduced to a peripheral figure under Jose, there remains a chance that he might move on.
