Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of agreeing personal terms with David Raya.

Hugo Lloris is tipped to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the summer

According to the Athletic, Hugo Lloris is tipped to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the summer with Fraser Forster set to stay on as the number two.

The Frenchman, who has been at the club for over a decade, has been a reliable presence between the sticks for Tottenham. However, this season has seen Lloris make some costly errors, which have led to the North London club dropping valuable points.

At 36 years of age, Lloris is clearly in the twilight of his career, and Tottenham must begin planning for the future. The club needs a new goalkeeper who can perform consistently at the highest level and help them compete for major trophies.

It’s never easy to replace a club legend, but Tottenham must take a pragmatic approach if they want to move forward. Lloris has done a lot for the club, but it’s time for him to move on and make way for a new era.

Tottenham have been linked with several goalkeepers in recent months, including Dean Henderson from Manchester United and Sam Johnstone from West Bromwich Albion. It is clear that they are looking for a first-choice goalie.

Finding a quality goalkeeper is vital for Tottenham’s success next season. They need a player who can command the penalty area, make crucial saves, and communicate effectively with the defenders.

Lloris has been excellent in these areas in the past, but his form has been inconsistent this season. All good things come to an end and so, the Frenchman’s time at the club must end here too.

The French international has a contract with Tottenham until the summer of 2024, but it’s unlikely that he will see out his deal. Lloris may still have something to offer to mid-table clubs, and he should have no shortage of suitors if he is made available this summer.
