Tottenham Hotspur number one Hugo Lloris has expressed his hopes that Spurs can win trophies next season amid the constant speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.

With David De Gea tipped to join Real Madrid during the summer transfer window, French publication L'equipe recently claimed the France international is Louis van Gaa's first choice to compete with Victor Valdes for the number one shirt at Old Trafford next season.

The France publication claimed Daniel Levy would be ready to offload the France international for around €25m (£17.7m, $27.9m) after the Spurs chairman last summer promised Lloris he would let him go for a reasonable price if a Champions League club showed interest in him.

Lloris has never hidden his desire to play for a Champions League club and was recently quoted by Le10Sport saying he would be open to a move to Old Trafford to replace De Gea if the Spaniard moves to Real Madrid.

"For the moment there is a goalkeeper at United and we are watchful of his situation. You have to keep certain calm with all this. If things should happen then they will happen naturally," Lloris said.

But asked now during an interview with Tottenham official website about his hopes for next season, he said: "We always want a better season.

"We expect to improve as a team and to get the club as high as possible in the league. We also want to enjoy it as much as possible with our fans, to go far in cup competitions – that's always a good feeling – and to win trophies. The expectation is always the same and we work every day for the chance to win something."

Despite the club's failure to qualify for the Champions League Lloris, expressed his satisfaction for the last season march while highlighting the emergence of a number of youngsters like Harry Kane or Ryan Mason.

"In general it was a good season. There were some ups and downs but we had some great moments to remember. We were involved in four competitions until February and a lot of young players came through and started playing regularly for the team. This is massive because they represent the future of the club.

"Two games in particular were unbelievable to play in – Chelsea and Arsenal at home. It was great to beat those teams the way we did. We felt the presence of the fans around the pitch during those matches – they were so happy to see the team perform at that level."
