Nick Pope tipped as ideal successor Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris
The veteran Frenchman has been with the club for nearly a decade now and has been the first-choice custodian for the entirety of his stint. However, at 34 years of age, Lloris is entering the twilight years of his career and has show signs of decline at times this season.
Furthermore, Lloris will be entering the final year of his contract with Tottenham in the summer and has been heavily linked with a move to PSG where he would stand to reunite with ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
And Robinson has now claimed that the goalkeeping spot is something that Jose Mourinho & co. must address in the summer transfer window.
“Lloris is obviously going to be heavily linked with the PSG job because of the close relationship he had with Pochettino at Spurs. He has been back to his best this season, bar the last few games, his form has been great. The goalkeeping area is an area that the club will have to address soon.”
Following up on that, Robinson added that Pope would be the ideal man to replace Lloris at the north London outfit.
“I think (Nick) Pope would be the ideal successor to Lloris in the long run but let’s not forget that they have got Joe Hart there as well. Lloris and (Joe) Hart are a few years older than Pope though so I think it is an area the club will currently be looking at. I think Nick Pope will be at the top of the list.”
