Is this Chelsea star in for a shock move to Spurs?

Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race for Chelsea‘s Petr Cech as a potential replacement for Paris Saint-Germain target Hugo Lloris, according to the Daily Mirror.

Spurs are looking at replacements for Lloris as PSG have upped their interests in the French superstar, with Steve Mandanda another possible arrival.

Petr Cech hasn’t been hiding from the fact that he looks set to depart Chelsea this summer as he is frustrated by playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois, who has established himself as Jose Mourinho’s first-choice stopper.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper has been with the Blues since 2004 and it seems his immensely successful career in West London is coming to end, though he could well sign off with his fourth Premier League trophy.

Cech would be an ideal replacement for Lloris due to his vast Premier League experience and if it were not for Chelsea looking to the future he would more than likely still be their number one.

Spurs would face tough competition to acquire his services though, as a whole host of top European sides are monitoring his situation, with Liverpool and Arsenal also tracking the Czech Republic international.

Cech is also a target for PSG but if they choose to offer Spurs big money for Lloris, then the Lilywhites could reinvest by meeting Chelsea’s £10 million valuation for the commanding ‘keeper.

Could Petr Cech make the move across London to Spurs? Would he be an ideal replacement for Hugo Lloris if the Frenchman leaves?
