Tottenham’s captain, Hugo Lloris, has disclosed his intention to leave the club during the summer. The French goalkeeper has been an integral part of Spurs since his arrival from Lyon in 2012, accumulating an impressive 447 appearances and maintaining 151 clean sheets across various competitions.

Although Lloris still has one year remaining on his contract with the North London club, he has now set his sights on a fresh challenge. Recent speculation has linked him with a potential move to Saudi Arabia, where his current weekly wage of £100,000 could potentially triple.

Speaking to Nice-Matin, he said: “We are coming to an important moment, whether for the club or for me.

“It’s the end of an era. I have desires for other things, I will ask myself quietly to study what will be possible.

“But I don’t forget that I still have a year of contract with Tottenham and that in football it is always difficult to predict what will happen.

“What is essential at the moment is to recover well from my injury. I’m on vacation but I continue to talk and do my training. My goal is to be on top in July, then we’ll see what the future holds for me.”

In response to these developments, reports have emerged indicating that Tottenham will begin formulating a succession plan for the 36-year-old goalkeeper in preparation for his potential departure.

Back in January, the player surprised everyone when he announced his retirement from the French national team.

“It is not easy to announce it, but after 14 years defending this shirt, which I wore with immense pleasure, pride, duty and a sense of responsibility, I think I have reached the end of my journey,” Lloris told the sports newspaper L’ Team.
