Lloris’ situation at Tottenham
As per a report earlier published by The Athletic, Hugo Lloris is set to have a discussion with the club about his future. The reports suggest that the player has entered the final year of his contract.
Tottenham could be in a tough spot with the player. Another year with a world-class player like Lloris would be ideal. It could also help the development of Pierluigi Gollini. However, the club would risk losing the player for free next season. While the possibility of him extending could always be on the table.
