Real have their eyes on Spurs ‘keeper Hugo Lloris.
Real Madrid are lining up a £20 million offer for Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, report the Express, as Carlo Ancelotti continues to search for the man who is to step in to the shoes of Iker Casillas for the long term.

Lloris has been consistently excellent for Tottenham since joining the club from Lyon two years ago and is rightly viewed as one of the finest goalkeepers in the world, meaning that it could become a struggle for the club to keep hold of him if they are not able to secure a return to the Champions League under Mauricio Pochettino.
Real, meanwhile, have stuck with the experienced Casillas this season – but the Spanish international’s suscpeptibility to conceding goals with errors of judgement have led the club to launch the search for his long term successor, with Casillas also entering into the twilight of his career.
Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas was signed from domestic rivals Levante this summer but has so far failed to nail down his place in Carlo Ancelotti’s lineup, potentially meaning that Real will be scouring the market for another stopper in January, with Lloris seemingly having jumped to the top of their list.
