Tottenham Veteran Lloris Turns Down Lazio Offer

Hugo Lloris has reportedly rejected a move to Lazio after learning that he wouldn’t be the starting goalkeeper in Rome.

The Biancocelesti have been in contact with the Tottenham veteran for over a week now, keen to bring in the 2018 World Cup winner on a free transfer once he finalises his exit from North London.

Lazio had prepared a two-year contract for Lloris, reportedly worth around €2-3 million net per season, but had no intention of using him to replace Ivan Provedel as the number one.

As reported by L’Equipe (via Di Marzio), Lloris has no intention of playing second-string so rejected the move to Lazio, wanting to remain a starting goalkeeper in the twilight of his career.

The Biancocelesti have now switched focus to other targets, including Union Berlin’s Frederik Ronnow. Other ideas, like free agent Samir Handanovic and Sassuolo’s Andrea Consigli, are lower on the list of options.

The hope is to bring in a new goalkeeper before the end of the month, giving some cover to Provedel following Luis Maximiano’s sale to Almeria.

  1. I think we “dodged a bullet” here. Thank God he rejected. Let’s see who comes but I’m happy it’s not him coz he would’ve been better then Reina but not with much.

    Ps: he wants to end his twilight as a starter, that’s why he came out today to say he will stay at Spurs, warming Vicarios back :))
    With all due respect, No CL team will make him starter in the top5 league so Saudi should’ve been now or never..

  2. Great move in not signing Lloris. If he thinks at 37 he is going to be a starter for a team then it’s time you go to a bottom feeder in any of the major European leagues. Or just go to Saudia Arabia with allnthe other greedy players. ANDIAMO LAZIO FORZA!!!!🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅
