Spurs suffer setback as Lloris is injured
Tottenham have suffered a setback in their preparations for the new campaign after goalkeeper Hugo Lloris fractured his wrist.
The 28-year-old France international suffered the injury during the close season and, upon returning to the club, scans revealed the extent of the damage.
Lloris started training on Monday alongside Spurs’ international players, working on his fitness.
However, he faces a race to be available for the first match of the campaign on August 8, away against Manchester United.
Meanwhile, Lloris’ fellow Frenchman Benjamin Stambouli looks set to depart after just one season at Spurs, with Paris St-Germain overtaking Watford as the favourites to sign the £5million-rated midfielder.
