Arsenal and Manchester United have been put on alert after France No.1 Hugo Lloris revealed his admiration for the Premier League.
Lloris is set to start in goal for Laurent Blanc’s men against England at Wembley tonight and he has admitted to being a fan of the English top flight.
The 23-year-old is one of many goalkeepers who have been linked with both Arsenal and Manchester United as his reputation continues to grow.
And both clubs are looking for new stoppers as speculation over their current keepers grow.
Arsene Wenger is running short on patience with Lukasz Fabianski after a series of high profile blunders, but the Pole is now beginning to put in some impressive performances at the Emirates Stadium.
And Arsenal’s former No.1 Manuel Almunia, who is injured at the moment, is the subject of mass ridicule after making gaffes last season.
Sir Alex Ferguson meanwhile is currently scouring the globe to find a replacement for Edwin van der Sar, who is now 40 and not a long term prospect at Old Trafford.
Manchester United will be the best bet for Lloris but he will have to wait to get his chance to move because Fergie has recently ruled out bringing any players to Old Trafford in January.
And the Frenchman is hoping to put himself in the shop window when he plays at Wembley tonight.
Lloris told reporters: “For now, the question of a departure to the Premier League does not arise, since I am under contract with Lyon until 2013.
“I feel good, but it is perhaps best league in the world, with five or six big clubs. Recently I watched Liverpool - Chelsea on TV and I really enjoyed myself.”
