Report – Arsenal Line-Up Shock Swoop On Spurs

By on February 27, 2014

Reports in France claim Arsenal are interested in signing Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris at the end of the season.

The Frenchman was linked with us before he joined Spurs in 2012 and it has to be said he’s continued his fine form at White Hart Lane over the past two seasons.

However, the 27-year-old is expected to consider his future if the Spuds don’t qualify for the Champions League next season and Le10 Sport suggest that Arsenal are one of four teams who are ready to offer him a way out.

The other interested parties are supposedly Atletico Madrid, Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain, but it’s Arsenal’s apparent interest that’s caught the eye.

I have my doubts over this report as I don’t see a first choice goalkeeper as being a priority this summer for Arsene Wenger due to the form of Wojciech Szczesny this season.

We’re certainly going to be in the market for a new No.2 to replace Lukasz Fabianski – who’s leaving when his contract expires in June – but I really don’t see Lloris agreeing to be an understudy and Wenger is highly unlikely to replace Szczesny as he’s shown way too much faith in the young Pole.

This report comes out after Olivier Giroud revealed last week that he had spoken to Lloris and claimed his compatriot would be keen on joining him at the Emirates, but the keeper quickly shot-down those suggestions, calling them ’embarrassing’.

Despite his denial, I have no doubt Lloris would make a move to Arsenal if given the chance – it’s only natural a player would want to step up a level in his career – and it would be hilarious to take Tottenham’s first choice keeper, but I really don’t see anything coming of this.

If Lloris does leave Spurs, which hopefully he will, then I can see him joining PSG as it looks like Monaco will be signing Victor Valdes from Barcelona.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, you silly little man. Do you honestly think Chesney is better than Lloris? You absolute moron. Not a hope in hell he’ll end up at you mugs. Your fall will be glorious.

    Why don’t need him, we already have two class goalkeepers in Szchesny and Fabianski, so no need for anyone else. We need strikers and another DM. Typical spuds going on about Levy … he is their problem, not their salvation, thinks he’s a mini Abramovich… with no money. But as long as they keep him there, it’s better for us.

    Complete nonsense. He wouldn’t get in our team.

    We will need a #2 as Fabianski and Viviano will leave, so unless he’s happy to sit on the bench and lose his spot in the French team, there’s no chance it’ll work out.

    I appreciate the gap between Arsenal and Tottenham is huge, but Lloris can’t be that desperate to go from being Spurs #1 (and best goalkeeper since Heurelho Gomes!) to Arsenal’s League Cup goalkeeper.

    Also, PSG wouldn’t want him, as they have a superior goalkeeper in Sirigu. If he wants to play in the Champions League again, perhaps his agent needs to get on the phone to Zenit or Shakhtar.
