Arsenal are now closer than ever to sign France’s international goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, with the Lyon star due to leave the French Ligue 1 side this summer.
If Arsene Wenger won’t tell the public anything about transfers until they are actually completed, the wives of Arsenal stars are giving the information away.
Bacary Sagna’s wife Ludvine Sagna has posted on Twitter her wish for Hugo Lloris’ wife Marine to join her in London, and for her husband to join the Gunners. Ludvine tweeted: “Really hope my friend Marine Lloris will come to #arsenal?,” wrote Ludivine Sagna.
Arsene Wenger has been watching Lloris for a very long time now, and with Fabianski due to leave the Premiership side having grown frustrated by the lack of chances he had at the club, a move for Lloris seems to be on the cards. A £12 million transfer fee is rumoured to be the figure on which Arsene Wenger is going to agree with the Lyon officials, even though the French club initially requested £16 million for the 25-year-old.
