Why PSG’s Salvatore Sirigu could be the ideal replacement if Tottenham's Hugo Lloris leaves

Hugo Lloris

The goalkeeper could be set to leave the French side after they signed Kevin Trapp, and Spurs may do well to take note.

Should Hugo Lloris leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer, Salvatore Sirigu could be the perfect replacement.

The Frenchman is thought to be a big target for Manchester United by the likes of Sky Sports should David de Gea complete a move to Real Madrid, although that deal looks set to rumble on for some time yet.

A move to Old Trafford would then leave Spurs with a huge hole to fill with the lure of a potential title challenge and Champions League football surely a tempting one for their star 'keeper.

And the person that could be an ideal replacement for him is PSG’s current number one Salvatore Sirigu. The Italian looks set to leave the French champions this summer, after they completed a deal for Kevin Trapp, confirmed on the club's website, that could see him relegated to the bench next season.

The Italy international would bring both Champions League and international experience to the Spurs side, and would likely be available for a decent price. He would also surely jump at a chance in the Premier League.

That would be perfect for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, as it would allow them to continue spending their money elsewhere while also bringing in some much-needed experience, with most of the squad not having abundant European experience to their name.

At 28-years-old as well, he is arguably coming into his prime, with it being widely accepted that goalkeepers generally hit their peak as they near 30, although there are of course exceptions to that rule.

Given that everyone wants a top goalkeeper this summer, Spurs could face stiff competition for the Italy man and while a move for him is dependant on Lloris leaving, it would be unwise to pass up the opportunity should it arise.
