'I Interviewed Him' - Exclusive: Lloris tipped to quit Tottenham by pundit

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris may join Paris Saint-Germain in a sensational reunion with ex-Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.

That is according to Darren Bent, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams about the future of the long-standing France and Spurs number one.

Lloris has been with Spurs for approaching nine years since leaving Lyon in August 2012.


But Bent has said that with Lloris not getting any younger, a return to his native France could be an attractive option, made all the more so by the prospect of linking up with his former boss in Pochettino.

He told Football Insider: “We know how much players loved him at Spurs. I did an interview with Hugo Lloris and I tried to touch on the impact that Mourinho’s had coming in on the players’ mindset and he didn’t wanna address it at all because they’ve all got this loyal relationship with Pochetino.

“He took them to a Championship League final and he absolutely loves them too. So I think that might be a slight concern: him going to PSG, one of the richest teams about, him being French as well and getting on in age. He’s probably thinking ‘I wouldn’t mind maybe going there.’

“If Poch gives them a phone call, how can you turn down Champions League football and the chance to go and work with someone that took you to the next level, believed in you.”

At Tottenham the three back-up keepers are Joe Hart, Paulo Gazzaniga, Alfie Whiteman.

According to reports, West Bromwich Albion’s Sam Johnstone has already been lined-up as a potential replacement, so too has Dean Henderson of Manchester United.

In other news, another senior Tottenham international is expected to leave the club in January but not Dele Alli.
