Atletico Madrid have identified Hugo Lloris as their next goalkeeper should Chelsea decide to bring Thibaut Courtois back to Stamford Bridge, according to the Mirror.

Courtois has been on loan at the Spanish side for three years but Jose Mourinho is expected to bring the Belgium international back this summer.

And if he does, then Atletico are lining up a move for Tottenham's Lloris. The Frenchman has been at the London side since 2012, but reports have suggested he may leave the club should they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Tottenham will not be keen on letting Lloris leave, though. The 'keeper has been one of Spurs' top performers this season and has become one of the best there is in the Premier League.

The French captain has already rubbished reports he may leave in the summer to join rivals Arsenal, but interest from Diego Simeone's high-flyers may really test both his, and Tottenham's, resolve.
