Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is an Atletico Madrid summer transfer target, as the La Liga club continues to plan for life after Thibaut Courtois, per John Cross at the Mirror.
The 21-year-old Belgian international, whose playing rights are owned by Chelsea, will not have his loan extended into a permanent transfer, according to Blues manager Jose Mourinho via Sky Sports.
This is why Atleti are searching for a potential successor to Courtois.
Lloris recently dismissed any assertion that he was looking to sign with Arsenal, a bold claim made by his compatriot and Gunners centre-forward Oliver Giroud.
"I think maybe some [of Giroud's] words were twisted, but it is embarrassing," Lloris said, per Spurs's official website. "I'm very focused on Spurs' ambition and I am very pleased to play for Spurs."
If you are to take Lloris's words to the bank, then Atleti should continue looking for alternative transfer targets.
