Hugo Lloris becomes top target for Champions League trio

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is the subject of a triple transfer tug-of-war featuring three Champions League quarter-finalists according to The Mirror, with Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid all targeting the French international.

Lloris has proven his worth time and time again for Spurs this season, proving a consistent performer despite outfield woes at White Hart Lane under two managers in a turbulent campaign at times.

The 27-year-old's excellent form has been enough to alert Barca to the possibility of replacing the outgoing Victor Valdes with a top stopper this summer, although they are also widely believed to have wrapped up a deal for German prodigy Marc Andre ter Stegen.

Barca will face stern competition if they are prepared to spend big on Lloris though, with PSG reportedly ready to better any contract offer he receives this summer to land the French number one.

Spurs will almost definitely be out of the Champions League once again next season, a situation a keeper of Lloris' calibre may not be prepared to accept.

The Mirror believe that Atletico also view Lloris as a quality, viable addition if they fail to persuade Chelsea that Belgian starlet Thibaut Courtois would be best served by another season starting in La Liga.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is a notoriously tough negotiator though, leaving any of Europe's leading lights facing a huge increase on the £12m paid for Lloris in 2012 to complete a deal after the World Cup.
