Tottenham plot transfer move for Watford keeper Ben Foster as Mourinho wants 36-year-old to push Lloris for No1 spot – The Sun

TOTTENHAM are plotting a shock summer move for Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster with Jose Mourinho desperate for some competition for Hugo Lloris.

The former England goalkeeper, 36, is out of contract at Watford in the summer and is already eligible to speak to foreign clubs about a free transfer in July.

But Tottenham are hoping he will hold off sealing a deal in order to snatch him up as competition for the No1 spot.

France star Lloris has suffered from a dip in form in the past 18 months or so – and has struggled with injuries this season.

His howler against Brighton led to him dislocating his shoulder, forcing him to miss nearly four months of action.

Now, having only returned to action in late January, Lloris has picked up a groin strain and missed Sunday's clash with Wolves.

With both form and injuries a concern, Mourinho is hoping to bring in more competition this summer.

Paulo Gazzaniga filled in this season, but the Special One clearly doesn't see him – or back-up stopper Michel Vorm – as genuine competition for Lloris' jersey.
