Edouard Mendy who has had limited game time this campaign with Chelsea is said to be on the radar of Tottenham Hotspur as they search for a successor to Hugo Lloris.

The North London Side have emerged as surprise contenders to acquire Edouard Mendy when Chelsea’s summer sales begin.

Tottenham Hotspur are making plans to bade goodbye to Frenchman and captain Hugo Lloris at the expiration of the campaign.

That definitely would necessitate the need for Spurs to find a replacement for the 36-year-old.

Edouard Mendy looks to be the perfect choice for Tottenham Hotspur based on several factors

Edouard Mendy appears to be a good choice that fits the bill as he might leave Chelsea with ease due to the Blues making plans on reducing their wage bill.

Tottenham Hotspur are yet to reveal who will be their permanent head coach after the sacking of Antonio Conte.

Scouts of the Lilywhites have been keeping tabs on the Senegalese shot-stopper for a while.

Spurs are also abreast of his present contract situation with Chelsea and that their City rivals need to sell many of their big names in the summer to free up space and to balance their accounting records.

Edouard Mendy has rejected a six-year contract offer from Chelsea and failed to come into an agreement over a new deal with Co-owner Todd Boehly.

He was seemingly shut out from the starting XI by Kepa Arizzabalaga, only making a comeback in their 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest last Saturday.

Many purists of the sports also stated how he was culpable for Taiwo Awoniyi’s first goal in their game against Nottingham Forest.

Chelsea’s possible next manager Mauricio Pochettino certainly knows that there must be several big decisions made concerning the players when he officially resumes duty on the 1st of July.

Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali have spent around £600 million on new arrivals this campaign to the point that the team got to a shocking tally of 33 at a time.

Mauricio Pochettino is looking at reducing that tally to about 24 or 25 players but the former Tottenham Hotspur manager will want to replace Mendy with another goalie.

The Blues and The LilyWhites have been fierce challengers in recent seasons and there is seemingly no avenue for communication between both parties due to certain things which occurred several seasons ago.

Negotiation talks between the two parties went to a massive low when Chelsea snatched Frank Arnesen from Tottenham to lead their youth development.

In the early 2010s, there were also player battles regarding the signing of players like Luka Modric and Fulham winger Willian.

However, with the new ownership led by co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, there has been a renewed beginning.

Chelsea also are in need of cash injections from player sales and as such a deal for Edouard Mendy could be agreed without hassles.

Many of the first team players at the Stamford Bridge club will be put on the market for a possible departure from the club once the season comes to a close on the 28th of May.

Former Brighton and Hove Albion left-back Marc Cucurella, who has been inconsistent since making the £60 million move from the Seagulls last summer is amongst those who could be offloaded.

Academy graduate Trevoh Chalobah alongside Mason Mount, center-back signing from Napoli Kalidou Koulibaly, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech are names that could be axed out.
