Jose Mourinho's three-man transfer shortlist to replace Hugo Lloris amid Tottenham uncertainty

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho looks to the current England squad as he considers a potential replacement for Hugo Lloris, according to the replacement.
Lloris has made over 300 appearances for Spurs and was named captain at the start of the 2015/16 season.

However, in recent seasons his performances have taken a plunge, with question marks appearing over his long-term future.

The 34-year-old will only have 12 months of contract at the end of the season and his explosive rant at Dinamo Zagreb has raised further doubts as to whether he will stay in north London.

Jose Mourinho could consider a potential replacement for captain Hugo Lloris

After their shock exit in the Europa League last week, Lloris called his side ‘shame’ and said ‘the squad was a reflection of what is going on at the club at the moment’.

Mourinho then opted to avoid his goalkeeper’s comments over the weekend, saying he was “too mature” to even watch the interview.

The World Cup winner has been linked with a possible reunion with Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain and the Sun report that plans are already underway for a direct replacement.

Dean Henderson and Nick Pope have both been linked with a move to Spurs

It is suggested that Spurs have the three goalkeepers currently in Gareth Southgate’s England squad at the top of their list of targets.

This includes Manchester United’s Dean Henderson, who was closely linked with Spurs before his return to Old Trafford last summer.

Henderson started the season as a second pick behind David de Gea, but recently replaced him in the starting lineup.

However, there are fears that even if United were ready to sell the 24-year-old they are unlikely to do so to any of their top six contenders.

Former United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone is also seen as an option, with a great season, despite West Brom’s modest position in the league.

And finally, Burnley keeper Nick Pope, who has long been recognized as one of the Premier League’s best, is said to be a target for Mourinho’s men.

Pope is likely to start for England in this month’s World Cup qualifiers after establishing himself as Jordan Pickford’s replacement on the international stage.
