Lopez, one of three deadline-day signings made by Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, arrives on an initial loan deal but can join on a permanent basis for a fee of £6million.

Lloris, who is currently recovering from a hamstring injury sustained on the opening day of the season, will be at the training ground to welcome Lopez when the Spaniard arrives at Hotspur Lodge following international Under-21s duty.

“I know a bit about him already – he played in La Liga last season for Espanyol and he’s a young keeper with a lot of quality,” Lloris told Tottenham’s official website.

“We will try to make him comfortable on the pitch and off the pitch. It’s important to make him feel quite settled within the squad – it’s a new experience for him outside his country and I think it’s good for Michel, for me and for Toni (Jimenez) too. He will train with us and he will help us to continue our improvement.”

Lloris is hopeful he will be fit to face Stoke City in the first Premier League match for Spurs after the international break and stressed the importance of a positive mentality.

He added: “Playing as a goalkeeper is never easy but mentality is important. We try to work well, try to be involved every day for the team and try to improve our levels. These are things that are important for all the players but when you’re a keeper these things are especially important.”
