Hugo Lloris rejects new contract offer talks with Tottenham Hotspur

A report by Football Insider (h/t Football.london) mentions that Hugo Lloris has rejected early attempts from Tottenham Hotspur to get him to sign a new contract.

Lloris rejected the contract as he doubts his long-term future with the club. The Frenchman joined the club in the summer of 2012 and has made 346 appearances for the Lilywhites.

Spurs remain keen to get their first-choice goalkeeper tied down to a new contract. The club would hold more talks despite initial attempts being turned down by the 34-year-old.

Lloris is currently on a £100,000-a-week salary and into the last 18 months of his Spurs contract.

If the club doesn’t get him to sign a new contract by this time next year, he would be free to negotiate with foreign clubs for a potential free transfer.

Thus, it is important for Jose Mourinho to act quickly if he does not want to risk losing Lloris. The 2018 World Cup winner has played a major role in their good start to the season so far.

Hard to replace

He has started in all 16 of Spurs’ Premier League games, conceding just 15 goals. Spurs have the second-best defence in the league and their goalkeeper is a big reason behind that.

Spurs’ resolve would be tested by Paris Saint-Germain, who are now managed by Mauricio Pochettino. (h/t football.london)

Hugo Lloris against Borussia Dortmund

Hugo Lloris is one of the most important players in this Tottenham squad.

Tottenham’s current backup to Lloris is Paolo Gazzaniga, who played 18 league games last year for the club. They also have Joe Hart at their disposal but the 33-year-old has been loaned to Burnley and looks like he’s past his prime.

More Tottenham Hotspur News:

For now, Lloris’ next assignment might be on Tuesday against Aston Villa in the Premier League. Spurs do play Marine on Sunday in the FA Cup but the Frenchman could be rested for that.
