TOTTENHAM are making plans to replace Hugo Lloris as their No1 this season.
The Frenchman is under contract at White Hart Lane until 2024, but has endured a torrid season.

Lloris, 36, has made more errors leading to goals than any other player in the Premier League this term.
Tottenham have begun the process of sounding out successors for Lloris, who has been at the club since 2012.
Here, SunSport takes a look at some of the potential contenders to become Spurs’ new first choice stopper for next season.
Despite the Toffees’ struggles this season, a more mature Pickford has impressed between the sticks.
But Everton getting relegated to the Championship could force them to sell their star stopper, with Spurs well placed to pounce.

Like Pickford, Brentford’s David Raya will also have just one year remaining on his contract at the end of the season.
The two-cap Spanish international was claimed to be “high on Spurs’ list of targets” by the Telegraph earlier this month.
Raya, 27, could opt for a new challenge after four years at Brentford.
Recently chatting to Spanish paper AS about his future, Raya said: “Every player has goals and wants to improve. Now I am focused on my team and in the summer, we will see what happens.”

Amid reports that his previous £107million release clause had been “significantly lowered”, Jan Oblak was linked with Spurs last September.
Oblak, 30, has been at Atletico since 2014, but the Spanish side are now reportedly open to parting ways.
He has made 377 appearances in total for Diego Simeone’s side, keeping an impressive 183 clean sheets.

Despite having already made over 100 appearances for Leeds United, Illan Meslier is just 22-years-old.
The Frenchman is a compatriot of Lloris and has represented his country at youth level.
Meslier will have an eye on succeeding the Spurs No1 as France’s first choice at some point and will likely feel that a transfer will boost his case.

Like Raya, Robert Sanchez has earned two Spain caps.
The Brighton star, 25, hasn’t looked back since become the Seagulls’ No1.
A good shot-stopper that is competent with the ball at his feet, Sanchez is likely to be in demand.
With his contract running until 2025, he has also been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea.
