Olympique Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is being watched by Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says Lyon No 1 Lloris has impressed Sir Alex Ferguson as the Manchester United boss looks for a long-term successor to Edwin van der Sar, who has signed on for another season at Old Trafford.

Schalke's Manuel Neuer, CSKA Moscow's Igor Akinfeev and Atletico Madrid's David de Gea have also caught Ferguson's eye, but Lloris has emerged as the one of the most consistent performers in Europe over the last 18 months.

United considered offering wayward Brazil midfielder Anderson in part exchange for Lloris in January.
