JOSE MOURINHO is reportedly set to raid old club Tottenham for captain Hugo Lloris.
Gazzetta Italia claims the new Roma boss is eager to sign a goalkeeper when he takes charge in the Italian capital this summer.

And Mourinho has apparently identified Lloris as the ideal man to go between the Roma sticks.
Lloris, 34, has been at Spurs since 2012 and has made 373 appearances.
He played in all 38 league games this season, cementing his place as the club’s No1 under both Mourinho and interim successor Ryan Mason.
However, Lloris could now be set to link up with the Special One at Roma as Spurs get set to appoint a new boss.

Antonio Conte looked set to take charge before talks broke down over wage and transfer demands.
But regardless of who gets the gig, their first job may be to convince Lloris to remain in north London – as well as Harry Kane.
Should he miss out on Lloris, Mourinho will apparently target either Wolves’ Rui Patricio or Juventus’ Wojciech Szczesny.
He has been linked with a number of other high profile targets too.
Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard is said to be of interest to Mourinho after his dismal season at Real Madrid.
Roma are also thought to be in for ex-Leicester winger Demarai Gray, now at Bayer Leverkusen.
Meanwhile, Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka says he is flattered to be linked with a move to Mourinho’s side.
And it has also been claimed the Portuguese tactician is hoping to pull off an audacious swoop for Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo.
