Now managing Paris-Saint Germain, Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly keen to lure Lloris to France following the pair’s brilliant working relationship whilst together at Spurs.

The World Cup-winning shot-stopper has seen his name linked with a reunion with Pochettino for several weeks now.

Despite turning out for Spurs for nearly 10-years, Lloris’ contract is set to expire in a little under 18-months time.

With no sign of renewal, there are growing suggestions that the Frenchman could be offloaded, with a new keeper brought in, in his place.

The latest in the ongoing saga comes from the Daily Mail, who claim Mourinho has highlighted Burnley’s Pope as the man to fill Lloris’ boots.

It has been claimed that should Paris-Saint Germain prove to be successful in their hunt for Lloris, Spurs would target Pope, who is valued at around £30m.

Pope, 28, has made 108 appearances for Burnley since joining in 2016 and is widely regarded as one of the league’s most reliable shot-stoppers.

  1. Yes, Hugo has not been the best this year and is on a down-turn spiral. Nick Pope is an excellent choice but Alphonse Areola or even Illan Meslier would be good candidates as well.
    What is most surprising with this article is the statement that PSG should be next stop for Hugo. They already have an excellent shot-stopper in Navas and has larger ambitions. Now Navas is at the same age as Hugo and should be replaced with a more long-term candidate.
