Tottenham Hotspur find themselves in a tricky spot at the moment, with dismal form sapping their hopes of Champions League football.

Spurs were top of the league not long ago, but now find themselves ninth in the Premier League table, nine points off the Champions League places and a whopping 23 points behind Manchester City.

Jose Mourinho is under huge pressure now having won just three of his last 12 Premier League games, whilst Spurs have lost five of the last six.

One player coming in for major criticism during this period is Hugo Lloris, with the Frenchman’s form leaving some worried.

Lloris was particularly poor against Manchester City earlier this month, and the 34-year-old may need to look over his shoulder as Spurs look at other goalkeepers.

The Sun claim that Tottenham want West Bromwich Albion’s Sam Johnstone, whilst the Manchester Evening News suggest that Spurs have lodged an enquiry for Dean Henderson.

Johnstone has impressed despite West Bromwich Albion’s struggles, turning in particularly strong displays against Manchester City and Manchester United in recent months whilst making 99 saves – the most in the Premier League.

If West Brom go down, Johnstone will surely land a Premier League move, and with Mourinho familiar with him from his time at Manchester United, he could emerge as a real challenger for Lloris.

As for Henderson, he has already shown his quality on loan at Sheffield United, and he really does have the potential to supplant Lloris and become Tottenham’s number one if they manage to pull off a deal.

Lloris has a £100,000-a-week deal with Spurs, and with Mauricio Pochettino allegedly keen on a reunion at Paris Saint-Germain, he could yet leave North London.

As things stand though, Lloris is in poor form and Spurs are being linked with new goalkeepers, meaning the veteran may be in danger of being replaced very soon.
