Arsenal boss Wenger pulled back on deal for Spurs outcast Lloris

Tottenham outcast Hugo Lloris could be playing for this weekend's rivals Arsenal, it has been revealed. The Daily Mail says Gunners manager Arsene Wenger was a serious contender to sign the 25-year-old during the summer.

Arsenal - who will attempt to sign a new keeper in January - had Lloris watched extensively by scouts last season as it became clear he would be available.

The Gunners were even readying an official approach but eventually decided his £16million asking price was too much while there were also lingering doubts over how he would cope with the physicality of English football.
