Arsenal and Liverpool on alert as Lyon admit Lloris could leave
A number of Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, are watching the circumstances of Lyon and France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris closely after the French club admitted Lloris could be sold this summer, the Daily Mail has reported.
The Lyon president, Jean-Michel Aulas, confirmed Lloris would be available for the right price, one that reflects his true value on the open market. The 25-year-old captained France at Euro 2012 and has been with Lyon since 2008, having previously played for Nice.
Lloris has 37 international caps to his name having made his international debut in November 2008, keeping a clean sheet in a goalless draw with Uruguay. He first captained his country two years later and was confirmed in the role by Laurent Blanc ahead of Euro 2012.
The three English teams said to be chasing Lloris each already have clear first-choice goalkeepers - Liverpool can call upon Pepe Reina, a non-playing member of the victorious Spain squad at Euro 2012, Arsenal boast Wojciech Szczesny and Tottenham Hotspur have Brad Friedel.
