The Lowdown: Oblak or Ter Stegen?
The Frenchman is expected to depart when his contract expires in 2024, and Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte are already believed to be on the hunt to find his successor.
Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak was originally identified as the club’s number one target, though it seems as if they have now had a change of heart.
The Latest: Hutton reacts
Asked by Football Insider whether Ter Stegen would be an ideal replacement for Lloris, former Spurs defender Hutton said:
“I think they need a long-term replacement.
“Lloris is 35 now, there is the odd mistake creeping in. I think Tottenham, moving forward, will want somebody coming in and pushing for number one.
“They will want somebody who can play with their feet. I don’t think Lloris is overly great starting the ball from the back. Someone like Ter Stegen, who has got time on his side and can play with the ball could be an option moving forward.”
The Verdict: Lloris replacement
Ter Stegen is a highly-experienced shot-stopper having made 536 appearances throughout his career, and he would be a welcome addition between the sticks at Tottenham.
With 16 trophies to his name, Ter Stegen will know what it takes to get his hands on some silverware and could bring the same level of success with him to the capital should he make the move in the near future.
