Tottenham are moving for Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
The Sunday Mirror says Spurs are set to sign French goalkeeper Lloris for £10 million.
Spurs acknowledge that Brad Friedel - 41 next month - is approaching the end of his career.
In the search for a new, long-term number one, Lloris has been the subject of glowing reports from the Spurs scouts.
Olympique Lyon will be reluctant to let Lloris go but they would find it difficult to resist a five-figure offer.
