Lyon advisor claims goalkeeper Hugo Lloris 'is less hot' for a transfer to Tottenham
Wednesday 22 August 2012
Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is likely to remain with the Ligue 1 club rather than move to Tottenham, according to Bernard Laporte.
Laporte, who serves as special advisor to OL president Jean-Michel Aulas, reckons the 25-year-old is "less hot" for a transfer to White Hart Lane now the French season is under way, but admits things could change if Spurs sell Luka Modric to Real Madrid and then return to Lyon with an improved offer for the France stopper.
Former France striker Laporte told French radio station RMC: "Regarding Hugo Lloris, he should stay at OL and not join Tottenham.
"Until the transfer window closes, you never know. If Modric goes to Madrid, things may move forward.
"But as he has started the Championship, Hugo is less hot to leave. He wants to continue at Lyon... Unless there is a very important proposal for him and for us. Their proposal was well below our valuation for our goalkeeper."
