Arsenal are reportedly planning a shock summer move for Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
According to French newspaper Le10 Sport, Arsene Wenger is keen to sign a goalkeeper and has already tried to sign the French stopper in the past and he might reignite his interest again during the summer transfer window.
Earlier in the month reports suggested that the Gunners are on the lookout for a new keeper after current number one Wojciech Szczesny lost his place to David Ospina amid some poor on-field performances combined with off-field antics.
The French manager is reportedly not convinced with the Polish international and is looking to bring in an experienced stopper to replace him.
Lloris has been in exceptional form for Tottenham and has impressed with some top quality performances in the last two seasons.
The France national team captain has been linked with a move away from the club, with the report claiming current European champions Real Madrid and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain as possible destinations.
Moreover, Lloris has indicated in the past that he wants to play in the Champions League and if Spurs fail to qualify for the competition this season, the goalkeeper might look for a club that will offer him European football.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper is contracted to the club until the summer of 2019, and thus any interested club will have to pay a high fee to prise the former Lyon player away from White Hart Lane.
However, a Spurs spokesman has rubbished all the speculation regarding the departure of Lloris, and believes that rumours will be common place due to the presence of many talented players in their squad.
"This story is baseless, it is pure invention. We have talented players and we have to expect that kind of thing," a Spurs spokesman said, as quoted on Le10 Sport.
