Lyon president '99 per cent' sure Lloris will stay

The Ligue 1 side are willing to allow the France captain, who has been linked with both Tottenham and Arsenal, to leave - but only if their €20-million valuation is met
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has given Hugo Lloris an extra week to find a new club for himself, but he is now "99 per cent" certain that the goalkeeper will remain at the Stade de Gerland.

As earlier revealed, Tottenham Hotspur are particularly keen on the France international, while north London rivals Arsenal are also believed to be interested.

However, no club has yet to meet Lyon's €20-million valuation, and while Aulas remains open to letting Lloris leave, he is now supremely confident that the shot-stopper is going nowhere.

"I have given Hugo one more week to reach an agreement," he told OLTV, the club's official channel. "But I think it's 99 per cent that he will stay with Olympique Lyonnais and I'm happy."

The 25-year-old Lloris, who has been capped 37 times by Les Bleus, joined Lyon from Nice in 2008 for a reported €8.5m.
