Tottenham emerge as surprise contenders to sign Chelsea star – Scouts have been watching him for some time

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur have emerged as an unexpected contender in the race to sign Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The veteran goalkeeper joined Spurs a decade ago and has been a loyal servant to them.

However age seems to be catching up with him and this season he has made a number of unforced errors leading directly to goals.

Moreover, Lloris has suffered two consecutive injuries since 2023, the first against Manchester City in February, which sidelined him until April, and the second against Newcastle just weeks after his return.

The latest injury means his season at Spurs has come to an end, and perhaps he has played his last game for Spurs if reports are to be believed.

The club are now reportedly actively looking for a long-term replacement for the Frenchman.

Various goalkeepers have been linked with Spurs, including David Raya from Brentford and Onana from Inter Milan.

The latest addition to the list is Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy, as reported by The Sun.

The potential move is surprising due to the bitter rivalry between the two London clubs and the lack of recent business between them.

However, under the new ownership of Todd Boehly, there may be an opportunity for a deal to be struck.

According to the report, Tottenham scouts have been closely monitoring Mendy for some time now.

The Senegalese international recently rejected a new six-year contract with Chelsea due to disagreements over terms.

As a result, Mendy is expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, and if Tottenham can secure his services, it would undoubtedly be a good signing.

If the North London club succeeds in signing the Chelsea shot-stopper, it would mark an unexpected turn of events in the intense rivalry between the two clubs and potentially provide Spurs with a much-needed boost in their goalkeeping department.
