Tottenham keeping tabs on Brazilian stopper

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has identified Inter goalkeeper Julio Cesar as a possible transfer target this summer, according to The Guardian.

The Portuguese trainer is eager to revamp his squad this summer, and has already added Jan Vertonghen and Gylfi Sigurdsson to the White Hart Lane contingent.

However, a new stopper is high on the coach’s list, as he wants to oust ageing Brad Friedel with a younger goalkeeper.

Brazil international Cesar is thought to be surplus to requirements at the San Siro after the Nerazzurri signed Samir Handanovic from Udinese this summer.

Villas-Boas is believed to have met the South American’s agent in London this week, with a move being ironed out.

Tottenham initially were keen on Lyon and France international Hugo Lloris, but the Ligue 1 side have priced the Londoners out of a move.
