Chris Perry says Michel Vorm is a ready made Lloris replacement

Hugo Lloris Euro 2012 Penalty

The former Tottenham defender would pick Lloris to leave Spurs over Harry Kane, and would select the Dutchman over Iker Casillas if that event did transpire.

Ex Tottenham player Chris Perry, once the club's most expensive player, has been discussing the regular rumours surrounding Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane moving to Manchester United, in an interview on Kicca.

The 42-year-old felt that one of the club's two top players was significantly more expendable than the other, explaining that he thinks it is incredibly unlikely Harry Kane would be sold by Spurs.

"If they can keep hold of Lloris and Kane and build around that then you can see them pushing on again," Perry told Kicca.

"But if Tottenham do have to sell one of their two top stars this summer, I would choose Hugo Lloris to let go ahead of Harry Kane.

"Lloris is a superb goalkeeper and if they can hold on to him, it would be hugely important – but Kane is the talisman for the supporters."

Perry also explained that he really rates the club's back up goalkeeper, ex Swansea stopper Michel Vorm, and would be happy if Mauricio Pochettino went with the Dutchman in the event that Lloris did depart White Hart Lane.

"Spurs have a ready made replacement for Lloris in Michel Vorm," he added.

"Vorm is a good goalkeeper, he did really well at Swansea. When they bought him in last season you wondered then if Lloris was going to go and Spurs managed to keep him."

Casillas is not what he used to be

For Perry, one thing Spurs shouldn't be considering if they did lose the Frenchman is the possibility of replacing him with Spanish legend Iker Casillas from Real Madrid.

The 34-year-old has long been one of the best goalkeepers on the planet, but has shown significant enough signs recently that he is struggling to demonstrate the class he is renowned for, according to the former Wimbledon defender.

"I really don’t think you want to get Iker Casillas," Perry said. "For me he had a really poor World Cup, he hasn’t been great for Real Madrid last season and is on the way down."
