Lyon yet to receive bid for Tottenham 'target' Hugo Lloris
Thursday 12 July 2012
In the face of
speculation that Tottenham are pursuing Hugo Lloris, Lyon chairman Jean-Michel
Aulas insists that the club has received no offers.
With Spurs two main keepers, Brad Friedel and Carlo Cudicini, both coming to the end of their careers, and there being question marks over Heurelho Gomes’ reliability, it had been rumoured that Andre Villas-Boas was lining up a bid for the Lyon stopper.
The 25-year-old who captained France at Euro 2012 still has three years left on his contract but it is thought that he could be ready to move on.
However, Aulas has rejected claims that Spurs have made an offer and has given Tottenham and any other interested parties until Monday to make an approach.
"There is no official offer for Hugo Lloris," he told L'Equipe.
"If it is not sorted out on Monday, he will stay and everyone will be happy."
