Kylian Mbappe scored twice as France cruised to a 4-0 win over The Netherlands in their Euro 2024 qualifying opener on Friday. 

The 2018 World Cup winners will be among the favourites to win the tournament in Germany next year, although they will be without one of their most senior players for the tournament.

In January, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris announced his retirement from international football, just weeks after helping Les Bleus to the final of the World Cup in Qatar.

Lloris made 145 appearances for his country, but now, the player’s club future is believed to be in doubt.

According to Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to part ways with the ‘keeper this summer.

The Frenchman has been Spurs’ first choice ‘keeper for a decade now, but has missed the last six weeks with a knee injury.

The 36-year-old will enter into the final 12 months of his current contract at the end of the season, and Spurs are therefore open to selling him for a small fee this summer rather than losing him for free next year.

Lloris hasn’t played for Spurs since the start of February

Lloris joined Tottenham from French side Lyon back in 2012 and has since made more than 440 appearances for The Lilywhites across all competitions.

Spurs are said to be actively looking for a successor to Lloris’ number one spot and hope to make a signing when the transfer window opens this summer.

In his absence, Fraser Forster has deputised for Lloris, but he has kept just three clean sheets in nine appearances across all competitions since the Frenchman’s injury.

At present, Lloris is said to earn around £200,000-per-week, making him one of the club’s highest earners.

If he does depart north London this summer, the report claims that Lloris is unlikely to remain in the Premier League and will instead most likely return to his homeland.

A number of Ligue 1 sides are said to have shown an interest in signing the ‘keeper, who played a crucial role for France as they lifted the World Cup five years ago.
