Saudi Arabian clubs lining up Tottenham raid for 145-cap international in January

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been linked with a move away from the club in recent months.

The 37-year-old goalkeeper was expected to leave at the start of the season but he ended up staying at the Premier League club. The 145-cap French international goalkeeper has fallen down the pecking order and he is now the third-choice goalkeeper at the club.

Although the 2018 World Cup winner has been an exceptional servant for the club over the years, his form has regressed and he cost his side valuable points last season. Tottenham needed to replace him and they have brought in a quality goalkeeper at the start of the season.

Guglielmo Vicario is now the first-choice goalkeeper at Tottenham and Lloris needs to leave the club in order to play more often. Although he is 37, he is still good enough to play at a high level and Saudi Arabian clubs could provide him with an exit route.

According to the Sun, Saudi clubs have enquired about the goalkeeper and it remains to be seen whether they decide to sign him in January. A move to Saudi Arabia could be ideal for Lloris at this stage of his career and the lower intensity of the Saudi Pro League would suit him. In addition to that, he would get to pocket a lucrative contract in Saudi Arabia as well.

The goalkeeper is in the twilight years of his career and a move to the Saudi Pro League could be an exciting adventure for him right now. There have been rumours of a potential contract termination with Tottenham and the North London club will hope that the player moves on by himself in January.
