Tim Sherwood slaps £100m price tag on Hugo Lloris

Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has put a staggering £100 million price tag on goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

The France 'keeper has attracted interest from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona recently and has stalled on signing a new deal at White Hart lane.

Sherwood's comments are likely to detract potential suitors from going after Lloris, who signed for £11 million from Lyon in 2011.

He said: "He is one of the best keepers around. Of course, people are going to want him. But I’m also sure the club won’t be tempted to get rid of him.

"He is one of the top goalies and unless someone is going to spend £100million on him – and keepers do not get bought for that money – I don’t think he will leave."

Any club who may want to secure the 27-year old's services will have to stump up a world-record deal, which Sherwood says is the only price chairman Daniel Levy would consider selling for.

"It was only that kind of figure that tempted the club to sell Gareth Bale – and he desperately wanted to leave and progress his career at Real Madrid," he said.

"He hasn’t got to play a blinder for France at the World Cup because people already know what he can do. They know he is a fantastic goalie.

“Even if he was terrible for France, I don’t think it would make a difference as to how people view him. Everyone can recognise it.

“He has never said to me or anyone else at the club that he wants to leave. And he does not perform like he wants to leave. He gives everything all the time and that is why he is a favourite of the players and fans.”

Tottenham will be hoping to end their torrid run of form when they host Sunderland on Monday night.
