Paul Robinson suggests what could be Tottenham's best deal this summer

Hugo Lloris

Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson has commented on Spurs keeping hold of a key player.

Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson has stressed to talkSPORT, the importance of the club keeping hold of number one Hugo Lloris.

The Daily Express has just reported that Lloris is likely to stay with Spurs rather the moving to Manchester United over the next couple of weeks.

United are likely to sell David De Gea to Real Madrid before the deadline and Lloris is mentioned by the paper as one of the possible candidates to replace him.

“For me that will be one of the best things that happens to Tottenham this year if they manage to keep hold of him. There’s been talk about him leaving, but he’s such an important player,” he told talkSPORT.

A vital leader

One of the main reasons Lloris is so important to Tottenham is because he’s a real leader at the back of the team.

He’s someone who can organise the defence in front of him as well as reading the game effectively so he’s able to get into positions where he can make big saves at key times during games.

He showed no signs of the wrist injury he picked up in pre-season during the draw against Stoke over the weekend and guarantees longevity for Mauricio Pochettino.

He’s reliable and consistent over an extended period of time and he will win Tottenham a lot of points over the next ten months if they can keep him wrapped up and protected before the deadline on September 1.
