PSG have been heavily linked to Keylor Navas in the past week. They also have French intl Alphonse Areola already there and he went 40:60 with Buffon last year. Would make sense for him to step up and they get an experienced backup. This article is so speculative..

I have wondered whether he might be the surprise departure after the drink driving etc but his form seemed to have returned over the last few months of the season and he cut out the mistakes. I wouldn’t be happy to see him leave, mainly because I don’t trust us to replace him adequately and top level keepers are very expensive.

He's our captain and Poch loves him. Can't see this happening in any way.

Seen a few posts floating around about us being interested in Thomas Strakosha at Lazio as a long term replacement for Lloris?

Could be a good option, by all accounts he is just under that class level and has been very impressive!

Would be available for around €25m apparently, would happily sign him and send him on a 2 year loan whilst we get the last of Lloris’s best? Keeping Gazza as Number 2!

Might be spam to some people. But wouldn’t be to sad if Hugo left. I’m sure we will replace him with some, else I think Gazza has proven himself to get a run.

Gazzaniga, whilst having performed admirably, isn't fit to lace Lloris' boots. Hence why one is a world cup winning captain and one was Southampton's third choice. Your opinion of Lloris is bananas.

Why is it bananas? You’re allowed as a captain to drunk drive 2 times and make silly errors which has cost your team and 9 points alone this season and not be taken your captaincy? Bollocks. People seem to forget quick.

Don’t get me wrong I love Hugo and what he has done for Spurs, but when you dip so much as he has this season there has to be some consequences. Just my opinion though. Just saying I wouldn’t cry or blame him if he left.

He’s also not near good enough with his feet to play for us, and puts his defenders under unnecessarily pressure every time, but that’s a whole new debate.

If it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t have got anywhere near the Champion’s League final. He saves us far more points than he costs us, this depiction of him as some sort of calamity-in-waiting is nonsense imvho.

He's also improved massively with his feet. I'm nowhere near a heart attack as I used to be and feel confident enough in his ability with the ball. He keeps it simple enough and I'm absolutely fine with that. Jimenez has done a great job over these 5 years with Hugo's ball playing abilities.

I’m not too worried about Lloris being linked elsewhere as long as Poch stays.

I just don’t feel he’d want to move, especially as the french league would be a step down at this point in his career and PSG have struggled in the champions league.
