Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is targeting Julio Cesar as his No.1 goalkeeper for the upcoming season, reports The Sun.
It was thought that the new Spurs boss wanted Hugo Llorris from Porto, but he has been put off by a £15m price tag.
Cesar could be available on a free transfer too and as long as Tottenham are willing to pay the goalkeeper’s wages, they could land his signature.
The 32-year-old would bring with him a wealth of experience and enthusiasm for the game. Villas-Boas clearly thinks he would fit into his exciting new era at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham do have Brad Friedel, Huerhelo Gomes and Carlo Cudicini on their books, but Villas-Boas may be willing to offload at least one of these if he secures the signature of Cesar.
After all, Friedel isn’t getting any younger, Gomes has been known for high-profile mistakes and Cudicini hasn’t played regular first team football for a while now.
This is certainly a transfer story to keep an eye on.
Elsewhere, Tottenham have made Luka Modric train on his own according to the Daily Mail.
This is after the midfielder has made it clear he wants to move to Real Madrid, a deal that has been around for a while, but is still a long way off.
As ever, more on this one as we get it.
