Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has sustained a fractured wrist during the close-season, the Premier League club have announced.
The France international, who joined Spurs from Lyon in 2012, is the club’s number one goalkeeper but has been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer.
A statement on Tottenham’s official website read: “The club can confirm that Hugo Lloris has sustained a fractured wrist during the close season period.
“The France goalkeeper will continue to work alongside the first-team squad to build up his fitness in a bid to be ready for the start of the season.
“Our medical team will continue to monitor his rehabilitation and progress during pre-season.”
This news is likely to hit Manchester United manager LVG badly, with news of Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas leaving Bernabeu for Porto, the Red Devils manager has set sight on the French national keeper Hugo as possible replacement for De Gea when he finally makes up his mind to leave Old Trafford.
