Petr Cech

Tottenham are preparing a move for Chelsea stopper Petr Cech in the summer, according to the Mirror.

French stopper Hugo Lloris is expected to make his way out of the club in the summer in search of Champions League football and Spurs are looking to swoop in for Cech to fill the void.

The Czech Republic international still has two years left in his contract and will be a good signing for Spurs, who have been immeasurably helped by the goalkeeping prowess of Lloris in his prime.

Daniel Levy is expected to slap a £30m price on Lloris, who is reportedly being wanted by Paris Saint-Germain to secure their backline.

Cech is likely to be out of favour at Stamford Bridge next season owing to the return of Thibaut Courtois, who is expected to warrant a first team spot with his brilliant performances for Atletico Madrid in the La Liga and the Champions League.

Spurs are waiting to appoint a manager to replace Tim Sherwood and had Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti on their list but the Italian is likely to extend his stay after winning their 10th Champions League title after more than a decade.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino is now favourites to take over and bring the free flowing brand of football, which has been highly appreciated by the Saints, to White Hart Lane.

Cech has made 470 appearances for Chelsea and will be sought after by all clubs across Europe. However, the Blues veteran reportedly prefers to stay in London and will choose Spurs if they make an offer.

Tottenham finished the league in sixth spot this season with 69 points, three points less than what they achieved under Andre Villas-Boas last season. However, failure to achieve Champions league football yet again, in spite of spending more than £100m in the summer, has led to the sacking of Sherwood.

Levy will be looking to ship out the dead wood and add more quality in the summer under the guidance of a capable manager.
