The France international has prompted speculation surrounding his future in north London by claiming that he wants to play Champions League football, and with the club set to miss out on fourth place once again he has become a target for a number of sides both in the Premier League and in Europe.

And manager Tim Sherwood has insisted that though it is no surprise that other clubs are taking an interest in their number one he is aiming to keep him where is he by claiming that it will take £100m to prize him away.

Lloris has an opportunity to shine on the world stage with France this summer but Sherwood does not believe his performances at international level will make a difference and maintains, with two years remaining on his contract, that the former Lyon man will not be going anywhere.

“He is one of the best keepers around,” said Sherwood. “Of course, people are going to want him. But I’m also sure the club won’t be tempted to get rid of him.

“He is one of the top goalies and unless someone is going to spend £100million on him – and keepers do not get bought for that money – I don’t think he will leave.

“It was only that kind of figure that tempted the club to sell Gareth Bale – and he desperately wanted to leave and progress his career at Real Madrid. He hasn’t got to play a blinder for France at the World Cup because people already know what he can do. They know he is a fantastic goalie.

“Even if he was terrible for France, I don’t think it would make a difference as to how people view him. Everyone can recognise it.

“He has never said to me or anyone else at the club that he wants to leave. And he does not perform like he wants to leave. He gives everything all the time and that is why he is a favourite of the players and fans.”
