Hugo Lloris

Free spending Monaco have reportedly identified Hugo Lloris as their goalkeeper target for the summer, while Paris Saint Germain and Arsenal have also being linked with his services in recent months.

Lloris moved to White Hart Lane from Lyon in the summer of 2012 and although he has become a pivotal player for Spurs he may be tempted to move away in the summer should Tim Sherwood's side fail to secure a Premier League top four finish and secure Champions League football for next season.

According to France Football Monaco are trying to taking advantage of Tottenham's struggling situation in the Premier League and convice the keeper to return to Ligue 1.

Monaco are ready to continue their lavish spending this summer and after securing the likes of Radamel Falcao last campaign, manager Claudio Ranieri is desperately looking to add an 'keeper to his first XI.

The former Chelsea manager believes he needs a consistent number one to replace Danijel Subasic and his side have been recently linked with Barcelona's Victor Valdes and Marsielle star Steve Mandana. However, according to France Football negotiations for both keepers are stalled and Lloris has become their first-choice.

Recently, the French international warned his club that failure to qualify for the Champions League could see him leave White Hart Lane.

"The objective is to reach the Champions League. After that, it's to close the gap on the biggest teams in the league," Lloris said.

"Without Champions League football? I've not thought about it. I must weigh things up at the end of the season."

After Tottenham's latest defeat against Norwich, the club sit in the fith place six points behind Liverpool, who secured a 4-3 victory over Swansea on Sunday and are now the favourites to secure Champions League football next season.

Lloris was restricted to League Cup and Europa League appearances during his first months at White Hart Lane last season, but after convincing then-manager Andre Villas-Boas he deserved a place in the starting line up he was installed as the club's permanent no.1 and is now regarded as one of the finest 'keepers in the Premier League.
