Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is reluctant to sign a new contract at the club, according to the Express.
Lloris signed for the north London side back in 2013 and has been one of their most consistent performers ever since, becoming the club’s captain in the process. However, there are fears Lloris could reject a contract extension if he believes the club does not match his trophy ambitions.
Lloris won two trophies with Lyon, but any chance of silverware this year looks slim, with Spurs already out of the Champions League and the EFL Cup, as well as being seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea. The goalie is keen to start winning trophies, having come close in the summer with France at Euro 2016, reaching the final before losing to Portugal.
The closest Spurs have come to winning a trophy during Lloris’ stay at the club has been their run to the 2015 League Cup final, where they lost to Chelsea, and their Premier League title challenge last season, when they ultimately finished third behind champions Leicester and bitter rivals Arsenal.
Despite their exit from the Champions League, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is adamant the club will deal with European competition better next year should they qualify. The club will drop down to the Europa League should they avoid defeat in their final group game at home against CSKA Moscow.
Lloris signed a contract extension with the White Hart Lane club back in 2014 which is set to run until 2019, but Spurs are eager to announce the France international as their latest contract renewal. Harry Kane and Jan Vertonghen have both signed new deals at the club over the past week while Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Winks have also penned fresh contracts in recent times.
