Lazio contemplate move for Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris

Serie A giants Lazio have opened talks with Tottenham Hotspur over the signing of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, as per Sky Sport Italia.

The French shot-stopper’s days at Spurs are numbered as he continues to be linked with an exit.

The arrival of Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli is a sign that the club have decided to move on from Lloris.

The 2018 World Cup winner has courted interest from Saudi Arabia this summer, but it looks as though he is heading towards Lazio.

The Biancocelesti are scouring the market for a new keeper after agreeing to sell Luis Maximiano to La Liga outfit Almeria.

Maximiano arrived from Granada last summer but has failed to dethrone Ivan Provedel as Lazio’s first-choice keeper.

Lloris is keen on a move to Stadio Olimpico since the Italian capital giants will be playing in the Champions League next season.

The 36-year-old ranks eighth in the most appearances for Spurs (447) and first for the French national team (145 caps).

Lloris announced his international retirement after the 2022 World Cup, where he was part of the Les Bleus side that lost to Argentina in the finals.

With the Biancocelesti set to play in the Champions League after two years, Maurizio Sarri could benefit massively from an experienced campaigner like Lloris.

Lazio are also interested in Union Berlin keeper Frederik Ronnow.

Having already completed the transfers of Valentin Castellanos, Gustav Isaksen and Daichi Kamada, Lazio are close to recruiting Nico Rovella on loan from Juventus.

They are also exploring the opportunity to sign Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci.

Lazio will kickstart the new Serie A campaign with an away clash against Lecce.
