After another excellent season between the sticks for Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur, French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is, perhaps unsurprisingly, being linked with a move away from London in the summer.

As one of the best goalkeepers in the world, it's no great shock to see some of the biggest clubs in the world becoming interested in the Frenchman, and the London Evening Standard are reporting that Real Madrid are at the forefront of such interest.

The Spanish giants, who are also reported to be targeting Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea and Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois, have been rejuvenated by new manager, and club legend, Zinedine Zidane, and have offered Barcelona a real challenge for the La Liga title this season.

However, one glaring weakness in the team this season has been between the sticks, with goalkeeper Keylor Navas making a number of costly mistakes over the course of the campaign.

And now the Spanish giants have turned their attention to a trio of Premier League keepers, with Tottenham Hotspur's Hugo Lloris looking the most likely target. Compared to the monetary power of Manchester United and Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur are perhaps the most likely to be tempted by a big money offer for their goalkeeper, as they have been done by the Galacticos in the past with bids for Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.

However, with one of the most exciting managers and exciting teams built now at White Hart Lane that Spurs fans have seen in years, the blow of losing a keeper like Hugo Lloris could well be severe. Could any amount of money really be enough to potential disrupt Pochettino's Spurs revolution? Only time will tell.
