Former Tottenham striker Darren Bent has warned Spurs that they are likely to risk losing Paulo Gazzaniga if they bring Hugo Lloris straight back into the side on his return to full fitness.
The Argentine has established himself as a fan favourite in recent weeks with a series of eye-catching performances.
He starred despite Spurs’ 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield, making 12 saves in the process.
And Bent believes Gazzaniga deserves to be the first choice at the club meaning the goalkeeper may consider an exit if he remains on the bench.
“I get Lloris is his first choice, he’s been a great goalkeeper for many years now but at some stage you start to get over the hill,” he told Football Insider.
