The long partnership between Hugo Lloris (37) and Tottenham Hotspur is coming to an end.
The British ‘Telegraph메이저사이트‘ reported on the 16th (Korean time), “Lloris is scheduled to leave Tottenham this summer. Tottenham is preparing to sign David Raya (Brentford), who can replace him.”
Lloris is a veteran goalkeeper who has guarded the Tottenham goal for over 10 years. He joined Tottenham from Olympique Lyonnais in 2012 and immediately became a regular, and was loved for his amazing reflexes and excellent saving skills. From the 2015-2016 season, he has led the garage team to the captain’s armband.
Lloris played with several goalkeepers, including Paulo Gazzaniga, Michelle Bom, Joe Hart and Pierluigi Golini, but he always had a starting place. He wore a Tottenham uniform and played in 447 matches in all competitions for 11 years. The Telegraph also evaluated, “Lloris’ initial transfer fee is less than 10 million pounds (about 16.7 billion won). Considering the ransom, it is the best Tottenham contract.”
But even he couldn’t beat the time. In just 25 league games this season, Lloris has made the most mistakes (four) of any Premier League goalkeeper. His footing ability, which was pointed out as his chronic weakness, did not improve at all. In the end, Tottenham is preparing to part with Lloris.

The most regrettable thing is that if Lloris leaves as it is, the 1-6 shock loss against Newcastle last month will be the last game. Lloris, who started at the time, collapsed by giving up 5 goals in 21 minutes in the first half, and was replaced at halftime due to a hip injury. It was a very humiliating match for Lloris, who kept the team strong even in difficult times.
Lloris is predicted to go to Saudi Arabia. The Telegraph said, “It is increasingly likely that Lloris has already played his last game for Tottenham. He is under contract until the summer of 2024, but he is expected to end his Tottenham career soon.” received,” he said.
Tottenham also spotted a substitute. This is Raya, whom Chelsea also showed interest in. He is 183cm, rather short for a goalkeeper, but is noted for his quick reflexes and excellent passing skills. Brentford coach Thomas Frank also assessed his ransom at £40 million (approximately 66.8 billion won).
Brentford is also quickly preparing for Raya’s departure. The Telegraph added: “Brentford are targeting Freiburg goalkeeper Marc Fleken. He has an £11.3m buyout clause. Negotiations are ongoing between the two sides,” he added.
