Dean Henderson 'among targets' to replace Hugo Lloris at Tottenham

Tottenham ‘consider trio of English goalkeepers including Manchester United’s Dean Henderson’ to replace club captain Hugo Lloris who is tipped ‘to leave the club this summer’

  • Hugo Lloris will enter the final-year of his deal and could leave Tottenham
  • Dean Henderson has been eyed-up as a potential signing by Spurs for some time
  • England keepers Nick Pope and Sam Johnstone are also said to be on their radar  

Tottenham are reportedly considering a trio of England goalkeepers as potential replacements for Hugo Lloris.

Dean Henderson, Nick Pope and Sam Johnstone have all made Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland.

There are major doubts over the future of Lloris at Tottenham, with just one more season left on his current contract.

Goalkeepers Nick Pope and Sam Johnstone are also reportedly being eyed-up by Tottenham

The Sun have reported that the three England goalkeepers are all on the shortlist to replace Lloris this summer.

It is stated that Lloris is tipped to leave the north London club at the end of the current campaign, and wants to return to France.

Manchester United shot-stopper Henderson, is one name who Tottenham have been eyeing for some time.

The 24-year-old started the season as back-up to David de Dea, but has recently replaced him in the Red Devils’ starting line-up with the Spaniard currently unavailable.

Henderson had been considering his future due to his lack of first-team action, but Spurs are reportedly not as confident in landing the £40m rated goal-keeper since his introduction into the starting line-up. 

Tottenham also have doubts whether United would sell to one of their ‘big six’ rivals.

So it’s reported that they’re also considering swoops for Pope and Johnstone, who are both expected to be cheaper options.

Pope has impressed for Burnley over recent seasons while Johnstone has made the England squad for the first-time after some good showings for a struggling West Brom side.

Lloris joined Tottenham in 2012 and has made 363 appearances for the side which he is the club captain of.

The 34-year-old delivered a stunning outburst following Tottenham’s stunning Europa League exit to Dinamo Zagreb last week.

Tottenham entered the second-leg with a 2-0 lead, but were eliminated following a 3-0 extra-time defeat. 

He told BT Sport after their elimination: ‘I think we are all more than disappointed, it is just a disgrace. 

‘I just hope everyone in the changing room feels responsible for this situation because it is a disgrace. The taste of the defeat is more than painful and we are all responsible for that.’
