Tottenham star named in top 100 players by FourFourTwo

Tottenham Hotspur's Hugo Lloris has been named in the top 100 players in the world.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been named in the top 100 players in the world by FourFourTwo Magazine.

The Frenchman was one of only five goalkeepers on the list, with Manuel Neuer, Thibaut Courtois, Gianluigi Buffon and Keylor Navas also involved.

Lloris was ranked as the 88th best player in world football, only further increasing his reputation as one of the finest shot-stoppers in the sport.

The Tottenham man has been a one man defence at times for his club this season, keeping opposition teams at bay with his outstanding shot stopping ability.

Lloris is lightening off his line, commands his box well and rarely makes handling errors making him one of the best in his position across Europe.

He is one of Tottenham's few genuine world-class talents at the moment and his role for the London side cannot be underestimated. 

Playing behind a shaky defence, he has caught the eye over the entirety of 2014 and will be hoping to continue impressing as the season progresses.

Real Madrid have already been touted to be interested in signing the goalkeeper, but his future at White Hart Lane may depend on whether Spurs qualify for the top-four.

It is unlikely that the 27-year-old will be happy to continue playing for the club if they do not make it into the Champions League, due to his own talents. 

Spurs fans will be hoping that they can keep hold of him, though, as he could go down as one of the greatest ever custodians to represent the North London club if he maintains his current form.
