Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is not only one of the best shot-stoppers in the English Premier League, but he’s also considered by many as one of the Top 10 goalkeepers in the world.
However, the reigning World Cup winner with Les Bleus is not getting any younger, so the Spurs are actively searching for the French’s long-term replacement.
And apparently, the London-based side has found a replacement since they have set their sights on making a move for Lazio’s star goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha. The Albania international has proven to be a quality, reliable goalkeeper and also has international experience since he’s been playing with the Serie A giants in the UEFA Europa League for the past two seasons.
However, it might not be easy to sign him. Despite the fact Lazio haven’t had their best season, the 23-year-old is comfortable at Rome, and the Serie A side is not making any plans to let him go, especially since they don’t have a reliable replacement.
However, the prospects of potentially playing in the Premier League – and for a Top 6 side, no less – could entice Strakosha to force the move on his own. Considering Lloris is already 32 years old, the Spurs would be wise to find him a replacement. The Frenchman still has a few years left at the top level, but it’s better to be prepared before it is too late.
