Report: Hugo Lloris frustrated at Tottenham and wants to quit

Hugo Lloris Euro 2012 Penalty

Hugo Lloris wants to leave Tottenham, according to a fresh report.

Hugo Lloris wants to quit Tottenham Hotspur this summer, report The Guardian.

The French international goalkeeper is reportedly determined to play in the Champions League, a prospect which looks unlikely at Spurs next season.

The paper claim the 28-year-old has made it clear to chairman Daniel Levy he would like to be sold this summer. Tottenham are currently sixth in the Premier League, and are seven points off fourth place with five games remaining.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright stated earlier this season on BBC Radio 5Live’s 606, he believed Lloris is Tottenham's only world class player at present.

The French international is established for his country and certainly possesses the talent to play in the Champions League, as he once did previously with Lyon.

Lloris missed Tottenham's win over Newcastle at the weekend with Michel Vorm filling in. The Dutchman signed last summer from Swansea City and is more than capable understudy, but if Lloris was to be sold then Spurs could look to reinvest in a replacement.

Spurs would do well to convince Lloris to give it at least one more year. Mauricio Pochettino is in his first season as boss, and it is too soon for Lloris to judge and jump ship.

Goalkeeper's careers can last into their 40s, as showed by Brad Friedel, and the Frenchman can still have plenty of time left at the top of his game, and a desperate rush to leave as if his time is running out is simply not necessary.
