As of the time of the summer transfer window, AS Roma and their manager, Jose Mourinho decided not to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
This information came from the Italian news source Il Messaggero.
Tottenham Hotspur Offered Hugo Lloris to AS Roma
A news report from Il Messaggero made it known that AS Roma had the chance to bring in two goalkeepers, Hugo Lloris and Kasper Schmeichel, to play for their team.
If AS Roma had decided to sign the goalkeeper from Tottenham, he would have joined his former coach, Mourinho, at the Stadio Olimpico. However, Mourinho seems to be happy with their present goalkeeper Rui Patricio. He is, for now, the team’s number-one keeper.
Lloris can never pretend to be okay with this news in disguise because he is currently looking for a new team to play for.
Sometime in June, he told Nice-Matin that he wanted to go for a new adventure because he had been playing in North London for eleven years, which was long enough.
Lloris can still find the new team he is looking for, but it is becoming hard for him because most transfer windows are now closed. He is earning around £100,000 per week, according to Spotrac.
Joining Roma Could Have Been a Good Choice for Lloris
Lloris sees it very disappointing that the move to Roma did not come to pass. He could have been changed to play under Mourinho again, and Roma has been coming up well since Mourinho became their coach.
Even though Roma is having some problems right now, they had a good season last year. They ended up in sixth place in Serie A and even reached the final of the Europa League, which was a significant achievement for them.
Mourinho’s team also managed to win the Europa Conference League in the 2021/22 season, which clearly shows that they have been performing very well in recent years under his lead.
For some reasons that are not known, the Stadio Olimpico did not want Lloris, so he will have to look for another team to play with.
In another news, a well-known Pundit, Ian Wright, said that Manor Solomon, a player from Tottenham Hotspur, did a great job when they played with Burnley on Saturday.
Ian Wright observed how good Manor Solomon played. He helped Tottenham Hotspur win very easily against Burnley over the weekend.
Wright said this on The Kelly and Wrighty Show for Premier League Productions on the 4th of September.
Wright was pleased about a player from Tottenham, Son Heung-min because he scored three goals (a hat-trick) and played so well against Burnley.
