The Telegraph’s Matt Law has said that Tottenham Hotspur could even consider letting Hugo Lloris leave on a free transfer this summer.
All signs point to the fact that Lloris has already played his final game for Spurs, with the goalkeeper’s eleven-year spell in North London seemingly about to come to an end this summer.
The Tottenham captain himself confirmed in an interview with Nice-Matin last week that he has a desire for a new challenge.
Ange Postecoglou’s arrival has arguably made an exit even more likely for the Frenchman since the Australian’s system would require the goalkeeper to be good on the ball, which is not Lloris’ strength.
That is perhaps why the speculation linking the likes of David Raya (The Times) and Jordan Pickford (Football Transfers) with a move to Spurs has intensified over recent days.
Spurs could terminate Lloris’ contract this summer
Law believes that Tottenham will make an exit easy for Lloris and might even consider terminating his contract and allowing the goalkeeper to leave on a free transfer.
The journalist said on the Last Word On Spurs YouTube channel: “I wrote a few weeks ago that he had decided that he wanted to go and he’s confirmed it.
“I can’t see any way in which Tottenham will stand in his way or stop it.
“I would expect them to let him go on a free transfer or some sort of nominal fee, just to maybe cover an FFP side of things for a nominal fee. I think they will make it easy for him.”

Given the service that Lloris has given Tottenham over the years, the least the club can do is to make the exit process as easy for him as possible.
I am sure that the club will allow the Frenchman the complete say on where he wants to move, even if it means sacrificing a portion of the fee.
