As we approach the January transfer window, we can expect the Newcastle transfer news to come rolling in, particularly as Eddie Howe is interested in signing a new goalkeeper to replace the Nick Pope injury.

Earlier today, we have been linked with a move for Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale. While this would be an excellent addition, it may be complicated since Mikel Arteta isn't interested in loaning out the Englishman without a compelling option to buy. With that in mind, Eddie Howe could keep his eyes in North London as there's another world-class option to who could come into replace Nick Pope.

According to a column on Tottenham Hotspur News by ex-Spurs goalie Paul Robinson, Hugo Lloris could a very realistic option for Eddie Howe to sign at Newcastle United. Hugo Lloris is yet to make an appearance for Spurs this season as Vicario has taken his spot between the sticks.

Given that his contract expires in North London at the end of this season, it would be a good idea for Newcastle to pursue Lloris, even if it is only a short-team deal. Lloris has exceptional experience on the big stage, both with Tottenham and the France national team, where he helped his country to lift the World Cup.

Newcastle need an experienced professional like Hugo Lloris to come in to fill the void left by the Nick Pope injury. While there is more of a case to be made for Aaron Ramsdale since he is the younger option and the most in-tune with the modern goalkeeping requirements, Hugo Lloris is a very underrated shout. Personally, I wouldn't mind Eddie Howe taking advice from Paul Robinson, who knows a thing or two about goalkeeping in the Premier League.
