Why PSG are unlikely to make summer move for Spurs star

Hugo Lloris

With the future of Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper up in the air he has been linked with a number of clubs. However, a move to Paris is unlikely.

This summer in Paris is going to be very interesting. The sanctions from UEFA regarding Financial Fair Play are set to shape the transfer dealings of Paris Saint-Germain. They will need to add a few more home-grown players to their squad, but after the recent UNFP awards, it is unlikely that Tottenham Hotspur ‘keeper Hugo Lloris will not be one of the targets.

Current PSG goalkeeper, Salvatore Sirigu, was named as the best gardien in Ligue 1, and despite the controversy regarding his victory, it should have gone to Lille’s Vincent Enyeama, he has still been superb this season. Any move from Paris to bring France’s national team ‘keeper to the Parc des Princes this summer would have meant the sale of the Italian shot-stopper. It is very unlikely that they will let go of Sirigu just to add another French player to the squad.

Although his performances have not quite been to the same level as Lille’s Nigerian goalkeeper, they have been far from poor. He has kept 19 clean sheets this season, it helps when you have Brazilian Thiago Silva in front of you, but he has still made the saves.

The future of Lloris is still up in the air. A lot will depend on who the new manager at Tottenham is next season. The Frenchman was not happy with the appointment of Tim Sherwood, and it led to the former Lyon ‘keeper questioning his future at Spurs.

If he was to become available, there would be no end to the number of clubs interested. It is likely that other Premier League sides would be keen, as well as clubs from Serie A and Ligue 1. PSG have always been linked, but the only real possible destination in France would be AS Monaco.

Although Danijel Subasic has enjoyed a good first season in Ligue 1, it is clear that Monaco will look to strengthen before the Group Stage of the Champions League next season. Lloris is from the Cote d’Azur: he broke through at OGC Nice and still has family members playing at the club.

It’s too early to tell where Lloris will be next season, but despite claims suggesting otherwise, it is very difficult to see him ending up in Paris this summer. Well except if it’s on the Champs de Elysees to parade France winning the World Cup
