Transfer news: Hugo Lloris could be on his way to White Hart Lane

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has admitted Tottenham are closing in on the signing of France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Spurs are aiming to reinvest some of the reported £33million they received from Real Madrid for Luka Modric before the transfer window shuts on Friday, with Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Willian and Internacional forward Leandro Damiao also on their wanted list.

Aulas indicated that Spurs are close to an agreement with Lyon and says the deal now rests on Lloris’ decision.

“I told Hugo today about certain exchanges [with Spurs],” Aulas said at a press conference today.

“Things progressed during these talks but nothing’s concrete yet.

“I’ve informed Hugo of these discussions. We’ll have to be a bit patient to find out.

“The decision belongs to Hugo who, I think, will be approached by Tottenham very soon.

“The clubs’ positions have moved closer together.

“It is up to him to decide if the conditions of the transfer are suitable, in terms of what he expects in fiscal and sporting terms.”
