Keeping international star will be like signing a new player, says ex-Tottenham star

first_imgKeeping Hugo Lloris at Tottenham Hotspur this summer will be like signing a new player, Mick Hazard has told talkSPORT.With uncertainty surrounding the future of several top goalkeepers it had appeared the Frenchman could find himself on the move this transfer window.David De Gea and Petr Cech are just two of the shot-stoppers who could trigger a series of switch should they complete transfers to Real Madrid and Arsenal, respectively.But now the chances of Lloris seem to be on the wane, and Hazard is delighted by the prospect of keeping the talented glovesman.He told the Weekend Sports Breakfast: “Certainly, with the opinions that he has voiced, it seems the case that he wants to stay and he loves it at Spurs.“There is no reason why we can’t keep him and I’ve got to say, for me, he’s an absolutely fantastic goalkeeper.“I think he’s one of the key players in the Spurs team and if we can hang on to him it’s almost like signing a new top draw player because he’s that good. He acts as a sweeper as well as top notch goalkeeper.“It’s an absolute must that we hang onto him.”last_img
