Tottenham confirmed on Monday evening that Hugo Lloris will be out of action for the remainder of 2019 after dislocating his elbow. The 32-year-old suffered the injury in Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion and was replaced by Paolo Gazzaniga just minutes into the game.
Lloris still has three years remaining on his current deal at Tottenham, but this might be time to consider his long-term future at the club. The French international made a woeful goalkeeping error against Brighton before his injury and has been shaky between the sticks for some time.
He’s kept only one clean sheet in nine appearances this season too, conceding 17 goals for his troubles. Lloris does have the ability to be a game-saver, but he’s looked more human in recent years.
At a time where the future of Danny Rose, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, Serge Aurier, Victor Wanyama and Christian Eriksen has been speculated about, should Lloris be added to the conversation?
Joe Brophy of SunSport has already cited potential replacements for the French international – Vorm (free), Gianluigi Donnarumma (AC Milan), Nick Pope (Burnley) and Andre Onana (Ajax). Lloris won’t be back until 2020, but it remains to be seen whether he’ll still be around next season.
