Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur could face a battle to keep Hugo Lloris following reports Paris Saint-Germain are lining up a swoop for the goalkeeper.

The Parisians are on the look-out for a new goalkeeper to replace Gianluigi Buffon, who has moved on after just one year, and Lloris is on their list of potential targets.

Lloris has often spoken of how happy is with Spurs, particularly when working under the leadership of Mauricio Pochettino, and he is unlikely to push for a move away.

However he is adored in his homeland after helping France win the World Cup last summer and a move could be tempting if PSG come in with a big offer.

Spurs may also be tempted if the price is right for the 32-year-old but they would want a top-class replacement lined up first.

PSG are also said to be very interested in Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, and may not even get around to putting in a bid for Lloris.
