Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has emerged as a £35million target for Real Madrid, according to a report.
The Mirror claim that the Spurs star is a target for the Spanish giants and that he will decide on his future once he returns from the European Championships.
The French goalkeeper has a contract at White Hart Lane for the next three years and has established himself as first choice since his £11million move from Lyon in 2012.
The 29-year-old France stopper is also the captain of his club and national team.
It is understood that the north London club will resist any attempt to sell their goalkeeper and will attempt to persuade him to stay.
