Everything pointed towards Lloris leaving this summer, and that was confirmed when Tottenham signed Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli. The Italian keeper will be the starter for Postegcoglou this season. He started the club’s first Premier League match against Brentford while Lloris remains injured.
So what’s next for Hugo Lloris? The 36-year-old is likely near the end of his career, but he still has some left to give. Gianluca Di Marzio is reporting that Serie A side Lazio is very interested in signing Lloris and is expected to continue contact with Tottenham over a deal. Lazio is in need of a new keeper, as Luis Maximiano is expected to depart shortly. The Athletic has reported that Hugo Lloris was suggested to Real Madrid, but they, of course, decided to look elsewhere, signing Chelsea’s Kepa.
Lloris has just a year left on his contract, so it’s likely he will leave for an undisclosed small fee. Lazio finished second in Serie A last season, so should the Frenchman make the move to Rome, he will be playing Champions League football this season. It will be very strange to see a Tottenham starting eleven and not see Lloris as the first name on the sheet.
