With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Arsenal and Tottenham are fighting it out for Julio Cesar.
North London due Arsenal and Tottenham are fighting it out to sign goalkeeper Julio Cesar, who has been made available for transfer by Inter Milan, according to talkSPORT.
The 32-year-old Brazilian stopper is expected to leave Inter after the Italians signed Samir Handanovic from Udinese last month, with coach Andrea Stamaccioni telling Cesar he is no longer in his first team plans for next season.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be looking for a reliable goalkeeper to prove competition for No.1 Wojciech Szczesny, while Tottenham are in need of a long-term replacement for 41-year-old Brad Friedel, and talkSPORT report that both managers have made enquiries for Cesar.
However, the London rivals will face stiff competition from Serie A side Roma, who are understood to be in pole position to land him.
The experienced keeper has racked up 228 appearances during his seven years at the San Siro and has also earned 64 caps for his country.
