Jean-Michel Aulas confirms Spurs’ interest

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has stated that Hugo Lloris will only be allowed to move to Tottenham if he begs to leave.

The north London club have appointed Andre Villas-Boas as coach this summer and the Portuguese man is thought to be keen to find a reliable new goalkeeper during the transfer window.

The White Hart Lane outfit have been linked with a move for France international Lloris, who has received rave reviews across Europe after good performances for club and country.

Although Aulas has admitted that Spurs have been in touch, Lyon are eager to keep their prize asset at the Stade de Gerland.

“Tottenham made contact through Lloris’ agent but there has been no concrete offer since. I don’t think they really want him, but we really want to keep him,” the Ligue 1 executive is quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.

“He will stay at Lyon unless he absolutely wants to go. The best present we can give to the fans is finding a way to keep him. We will try to do just that.”
