Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nacer Chadli told L’Equipe he feels Hugo Lloris has nothing to prove at the club.
The Belgian expects the French goalkeeper to stay at White Hart Lane for next season, despite speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.
The Daily Star has recently suggested that the Frenchman remains a target for the Old Trafford club, with David De Gea showing no signs of signing a new contract.
“He's really a good guy. I like him a lot, as captain. On the field, he has nothing to prove, he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world. I think he will stay. The club has ambition and wants to finish in the top four of the league. I hope they keep him,” he said.
Lloris creates a number of benefits for Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino, which show why it’s paramount they fight to keep him where he is.
He’s a leader at the back and his captaincy skills allow him to organise various areas of the team, which makes Tottenham a difficult side to break down over 90 minutes.
He also take risks which allows the Spurs back four to adopt a higher defensive line. They know he’s always looking for signs of danger in terms of a ball over the top and he’s very quick off his line to see off any threats.
What Spurs are always battling against in terms of keeping Lloris and other key first team players, is Champions League football.
It’s a carrot which Spurs currently can’t dangle, but is something they will fight hard to achieve next season.
