- Tottenham are said to have prepared for Paris Saint-Germain

Tottenham are reportedly preparing for Paris Saint-Germain to sign their captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
The shot stopper has been in North London since 2012 and was named skipper three years later by former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
But Tottenham now fear they could lose their number 1 to Paris Saint-Germain if Pochettino is finally named to succeed Thomas Tuchel The sun.
Hugo Lloris has been linked with a move to PSG to reconnect with Mauricio Pochettino (L).
The report claims Spurs are already keeping an eye on West Brom’s first-choice Sam Johnstone as well as Manchester United’s highly rated substitute goalkeeper Dean Henderson in the event they lose Lloris.
Shining between the sticks for the Baggies this season, Johnstone was the standout player in West Brom’s draw against Manchester City and Liverpool, while England’s Henderson waits patiently in the starting blocks to subdue David de Gea at Old Trafford.
PSG’s current number 1 is Keylor Navas, 34, while Lloris, also 34, has 18 months on his current Tottenham deal.

Pochettino is moving closer to taking over the Parc des Princes after Tuchel was released from his duties and filed a number of his previous charges.
Tottenham’s awkward midfielder Dele Alli, already linked with a move to PSG, was able to follow Pochettino through the door in the French capital. The transfer window opened today and a loan exchange is an option.
While the Inter Milan playmaker Christian Eriksen, who is again far down in the rankings in his current club, was also associated with a reunion with Pochettino at the Ligue 1 giants.
Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is also reportedly another option
