Amid fears that Hugo Lloris is set to snub Tottenham's offer of a new long-term contract, Celtic and England goalkeeper, Fraser Forster, is being lined-up as a possible replacement, according to The Daily Mail.
Lloris is currently under contract with the north London club until 2016, meaning other clubs will be free to move for the player in just 18 months, should he fail to sign another deal.
Tottenham are in talks with the player over a new deal, in order to ensure that they will receive a decent price for their star keeper, should he make the decision to seek a move away.
Lloris is reportedly unhappy about the prospect of another year without Champions League football, despite being among the world's best keepers, and French giants Paris Saint-Germain are working on a £20million deal to take the keeper back to his home nation.
When asked about his future, the France international said: “My future? It's a good question. I want to concentrate on the World Cup and deal with my future after.”
However, the club's interest in Forster, who will be travelling to the World Cup as a part of Roy Hodgson's England squad, suggests that they are preparing for the worst. Forster currently plies his trade at Celtic, where he has been for the past two seasons, after failing to make a single first-team appearance in six years at Newcastle.
However, after proving his quality, both in the Scottish Premier League and in some strong performances in the UEFA Champions League, he may finally get the chance to prove himself in the Premier League.
