Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris could reportedly be on his way out of White Hart Lane in the summer transfer window.
£25 million is the price tag for the French shot-stopper, according to The Sun, but even with that hefty price, what would Tottenham gain from selling their number one.
Tottenham’s recent rejuvenation has seen them climb to within two points of the Champions League positions a place in the top four is worth so much more than this proposed transfer fee, both to Mauricio Pochettino’s wallet and his job.
Lloris had a shaky start to life in the Premier League but has found his feet and is considered to be one of the best keepers in the English game, but is he this price tag when there are better keepers available?
Both Real Madrid and PSG aren’t against spending millions to gain success but would even these two teams be prepared to pay such an amount for second best?

There is no doubting the quality Lloris has, but if Real Madrid and PSG want to carry on competing with the likes of Bayern Munich there is only one logical solution.
De Gea superior
David de Gea has shone in a disappointing Manchester United side for the last two seasons despite his defence often being makeshift and, at times, simply awful.
Most football fans, would consider De Gea to be the only keeper that comes close to Bayern’s Manuel Neuer, and with the Spaniard being four years younger than both Lloris and the German, he has the potential to become better than both of them.
A hefty price tag would be needed to lure De Gea away from United. The Spaniard’s Atletico Madrid links would not help with the fee but both clubs have the money to pay for the best, and that is exactly what both clubs need should they want to stay in touch with Bayern Munich.
