Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has suggested that he is keen for Hugo Lloris to sign a new contract at the club in the near future, writes the Sportsmole.
Lloris has again been a key player for Spurs during the 2021-22 campaign, making 14 appearances in all competitions, but the goalkeeper’s contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is due to expire next June.
There continues to be speculation surrounding the 34-year-old, who is thought to be open to the idea of seeking pastures new once his contract has expired.
However, Conte has hinted that he is planning to sit down with the France international to discuss a possible extension.
“Yeah but I’ve just arrived. Only one month. In this moment, for sure, we have many situations to solve,” Conte told reporters. “Hugo is the captain of this team, captain of France, we’re talking about a top goalkeeper.
“He’s very focused now and he knows very well that now we’re trying to do our best. Me as a coach, Hugo as a goalkeeper and every player has to perform at a high level, but for sure we’ll have time to speak about him and I consider him an important player for Tottenham, for his experience.
“He’s a good goalkeeper first of all and many years at this club, he has showed always great commitment for this club.”
Lloris has made 387 appearances for Tottenham since arriving from Lyon in August 2012.
