The Telegraph have revealed that Spurs have identified Brentford goalkeeper David Raya as the long-term successor to Hugo Lloris.

Spurs are actively searching for a goalkeeper to replace 36-year-old captain Hugo Lloris, whose contract expires in 2024. Matt Law has reported that the club want a replacement before he departs, and Spurs are targeting Brentford goalkeeper David Raya.

Raya will enter the last year of his contract this summer and will surely attract interest from many clubs, but the report asserts that Spurs will not be targeting a goalkeeper this January. Antonio Conte likes Lloris but is conscious that a replacement needs to be sought after.

Lloris signed a contract extension in 2022 to stay for another two years, but his standards have dipped somewhat this season. The Frenchman was at fault for the first goal conceded to Aston Villa last week, but has been a leader in the Spurs changing room since he joined in 2012.

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is also on the list for Spurs for goalkeepers, but a deal might be more difficult. His contract also expires in 2024, with the England number one yet to commit to a new deal.

Spurs Web Opinion:

David Raya, at 27 years old, is the right age for a goalkeeper that Spurs are looking for, as they search for a long-term replacement for Lloris. The Spaniard has proved he is Premier League quality with exemplary performances, such as against Liverpool most recently.
