Transfer news: Hugo Lloris appears to want to stay in Ligue 1
Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris appears focused on playing for the French side in Ligue 1, despite interest from Arsenal and Tottenham.
The 25-year-old France captain is now looking at taking the fight to big-spending Paris Saint-Germain.
“Aside from us, I would say PSG [are among the favourites for the title],” Lloris told FourFourTwo.
“They are a talented team. They have spent a lot of money and have some very good players.
“The pressure will really be on them to prove they are the best.”
The Ligue 1 favourites have brought in the likes of Ezequiel Lavezzi, Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic yet Lloris believes this will make Ligue 1 stronger.
“This is modern football,” he added. “All the great clubs buy the best players.
“I think it will make all the clubs in Ligue 1 better.
“It will also bring a lot of attention to our championship around the world and that is a good thing.
“I look forward to playing them.”
