Reports suggest that Monaco could move for Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris should they fail to land Steve Mandanda from Marseille.

AS Monaco have reportedly identified Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris as a back-up option should they fail to prise Steve Mandanda from Ligue 1 rivals Marseille.

Les Phoceens have so far resisted Claudio Ranieri's attempts to snatch the 28-year-old from the Stade Velodrome, although the principality club are believed to be preparing a fresh bid in January.

According to Le10Sport, Elie Baup has told the French international that he will definitely be allowed to leave at the end of the season, but that might not be soon enough for Monaco.

Lloris is thought to be next on the Italian's list of targets, but it remains unclear whether the 26-year-old would be interested in a move to the Stade Louis II.

The French number one only arrived at White Hart Lane from Lyon last summer.
