White Hart Lane custodian wanted by Catalan giants.
Barcelona have set their sights on Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris as the Nou Camp side looks to bring in an able replacement for contract rebel Victor Valdes according to the Daily Express.
After initially failing to inspire the confidence of boss Andre Villas-Boas, who didn’t hand the French keeper a Premier League start in his first month at White Hart Lane, Hugo Lloris is now seemingly Tottenham’s number one starter having fought off veteran Brad Friedel for the starting spot.

The 26 year old former Lyon man has conceded just five goals in his past ten appearances but may still be very tempted by any interest shown by Catalan giants Barcelona.
Valdes surprisingly declared his intention to leave Barcelona when they made the 31 year old a contract offer and as well as Lloris the La Liga side have earmarked interest in Liverpool’s Pepe Reina and Man United youngster David de Gea.
Lloris has now made 22 appearances for Tottenham since his £8m move and racked up 195 appearances for Lyon during his four seasons at the Stade Gerland.
