Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly earmarked Manchester United’s Dean Henderson as a possible replacement for Hugo Lloris after concerns grew that Mauricio Pochettino could look to raid his former club, once announced as PSG’s new manager.
Pochettino, 48, who has been out of a job for over 12-months finally looks set to have found his next destination.
Following the recent sacking of Thomas Tuchel, it has been claimed that Tottenham Hotspur’s former boss is next in line to command the Parc des Princes dugout, as per Telegraph.
With an official announcement from the French champions expected anytime now, according to a recent report from The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur have concerns that their former manager could turn his attentions to some of his old players.
The Sun claim that one player they could lose to PSG in the coming weeks is number-one goalkeeper Lloris.
Lloris’ current contract with Daniel Levy’s London club is set to expire in 18-months time and there are suggestions that in an attempt to plan for the future, Mourinho has highlighted West Brom’s Sam Johnstone and United’s Henderson as two potential replacements.
Landing either won’t be an easy task for Tottenham Hotspur’s recruitment team though, especially United’s 23-year-old who has recently penned a bumper new five-year contract, as per Sky Sports.
However, despite the audacious claims, fans of the Red Devils can perhaps breathe a sigh of relief, at least for now, after it was reported by the Daily Mail that Tottenham Hotspur are not prepared to allow Lloris to leave during the current transfer window.
