Tottenham ready to make their move for Lloris

Lyon goalkeeper Hugo LlorisTottenham are ready to make a move for Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, with negotiations over a transfer underway according to Mirror Football.

Andre Villas-Boas is eager to bolster his Spurs squad this summer, with a new goalkeeper on his wishlist as a long-term replacement to the ageing Brad Friedel.

With Gylfi Sigurdsson and Jan Vertonghen already been signed, Daniel Levy has flown to France to talk to the Ligue 1 side over a possible move.

Lyon have stated that they want £16 million for their star man, but Spurs are trying to bring that price down to around £12 million.

Lloris captained France at Euro 2012 and is widely-regarded as one of the most exciting goalkeepers to shoot onto the scene in recent years.

Villas-Boas was keen to sign Lloris last season for Chelsea, and will try again this summer as Tottenham boss.
