With the drop in form of Wojciech Szczesny, Arsene Wenger is apparently looking for a replacement. We might find a solution in the unlikeliest of places, with the boss planning to raid our North London rivals for Hugo Lloris, according to the Mirror.
The French shot-stopper has been linked with a move away from Tottenham for a while now, with Champions League football a priority.
Wenger is known to be a big fan of his compatriot, but has until now kept faith with Szczesny. That seems to be changing however, with the giant Pole dropped at the start of the year.
The 28-year-old has been at Tottenham since 2012, and has proved to be an excellent acquisition. He is far too good to be playing at White Hart Lane, and while I am a huge fan of Szczesny I believe Lloris would be an upgrade.

He has been one of the best keepers in the Premier League in recent seasons, but has struggled behind a less than stellar defence.
This is not a deal I am confident will happen, but would be a great bit of business if there is any truth in the rumour.
