The Spurs captain is willing to take on a new challenge.

Hugo Lloris has expressed his desire to leave Tottenham this summer.

The French keeper has been among the most consistent keepers in the Premier League since his move from Lyon in 2012.

Lloris still has a year on his Tottenham contract but wants to change clubs in the upcoming summer transfer window.

“It’s the end of an era. I have a desire for something else. I will carefully study what is possible,” he said on Friday.

“I haven’t forgotten that I’ve a year left on my contract at Spurs.”

Lloris made 25 appearances for Tottenham before a leg injury ended his season in early May. The World Cup winner’s possible exit this summer will most likely force the Spurs to sign a new keeper.

In July 2021, Tottenham signed Pierluigi Gollini on a loan deal from Atalanta. However, the Italian keeper weren’t able to challenge Lloris for the No.1 spot.

Fraser Forster played as Lloris’ replacement toward the end of the last season. But the 35-year-old will most likely remain as the Spurs’ second keeper.

Tottenham were considering a move for Jordan Pickford last summer. But Everton’s Premier League survival could convince the England international to stay at Goodison Park.

Another target is Brentford’s David Raya, but the Spurs are yet to make a formal offer for the 27-year-old.
