Speculation over Lloris while Tottenham and Aston Villa are linked with Blackpool prospect

Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris is reportedly on a shortlist of goalkeepers Real Madrid will make approaches for this summer and that the Spanish club feel he might be easier to land than Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois.

Lloris recently committed his future to Spurs by extending his contract at White Hart Lane to 2022.

The Daily Telegraph nevertheless suggest that the 30-year-old Frenchman will be targeted by Real once their transfer ban is over, if Chelsea convince Courtois to stay at Stamford Bridge.

Spurs and Arsenal are both said to be watching Blackpool teenager Bright Osayi-Samuel.

The Daily Express say the two London clubs have been keeping tabs on the 19-year-old since last summer, while the Birmingham Mail claim Aston Villa are also tracking him.

He has played 27 times for the League Two side this season and is out of contract in the summer.

Meanwhile, The Sun claim Tottenham asked about signing Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez in January.

They were apparently told the 25-year-old, last season’s PFA player of the year, was not for sale.

Mahrez had previously been linked with Arsenal prior to signing a new contract in August.
