Lloris has been 'really poor for years' and Tottenham told to 'let him go' after source's update today - pundit
Hugo Lloris has been “really poor for years” and Tottenham should let him leave at the end of the season, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Aston Villa and England attacker claimed it was time Spurs signed a new goalkeeper who can be the number one for the next decade.
Lloris’ current Tottenham contract expires at the end of the season.
A Spurs source has told Football Insider the club are assessing potential goalkeeper signings, with West Brom’s Sam Johnstone, 28, their number one target.
There is still a chance the Frenchman, 34, could be offered a new deal beyond this term.
As quoted by the Daily Mail earlier this month (November 14), Lloris insisted he was “calm and relaxed” about the situation despite the club not opening negotiations yet.

“Lloris, for me, has been really poor for years,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“He’s not a very good shot-stopper, he’s not very good with his feet as well. He’s getting on a bit as well.
“I’m sure he’ll be demanding a high wage. If I was Spurs I would let him go and bring in a keeper who can be there for the next 10 years.
“It makes sense, definitely.”
Lloris has played 386 times across all competitions for Spurs and been an ever-present in the Premier League this season by playing every minute of their 12 matches.
He moved from Lyon in the summer of 2012 and was named club captain three years later as he replaced the outgoing Younès Kaboul.
