Why now is the perfect time for Tottenham to sell Hugo Lloris

The Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper has been linked with an exit from the club this summer.

Hugo Lloris of Spurs looks on during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton at Wembley Stadium on December 26, 2017 in London, England.

According to a report from the Sun, Tottenham stopper Hugo Lloris is a summer transfer target for Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, but should the north London outfit consider selling the Frenchman?

Thee 32-year-old joined Spurs from Lyon in the summer of 2012, for a fee believed to be worth £11.8 million according to BBC Sport, and he has gone on to make 298 appearances in all competitions for the club, keeping 106 clean sheets in the process.

Lloris has been a vital player for Tottenham over the past seven years, and his influence both on and off the pitch cannot be underestimated.

 

The France international experienced problems over the past season, however, making a series of high-profile errors that proved costly to his side.

It could be argued that he is now on the downward spiral of his career.

The Sun claims that Tottenham could be ready to sell Lloris, but only for a huge fee, and now might just be the right time to cash in on the World Cup winner.

Spurs have Paulo Gazzaniga in reserve, and at the age of 27, the Argentine seems to be at the age where he is ready to become the club's number one goalkeeper.

Lloris has three years remaining on his current contract, and his value will slowly start to decrease from now on in, so Tottenham must cash in now, when they will still be able to command a massive fee for the Frenchman.
