Tottenham linked with Rangers target, speculation over Cech’s future

QPR face competition from Tottenham for the signing of Nottingham Forest defender Jamaal Lascelles, according to the Daily Mail.

West London Sport this week revealed that Rangers had made an offer for the 20-year-old centre-back.

And the Mail say Spurs are planning to table a £5m bid for Lascelles, who made 34 appearances for Forest last season.

It is also suggested that the player would prefer to stay in the north rather than move to London.

Meanwhile, the Daily Star claim Eliaquim Mangala wants to join Chelsea despite Manchester City agreeing a £32m deal for the Porto and France defender.

And there is speculation over the future of Petr Cech amid reports that he could be ousted as Chelsea’s first choice goalkeeper by Thibault Courtois.

The Mirror reports that Cech’s agent Viktor Kolar is confident the 32-year-old will be snapped up by a top European club if he loses his place.

Kolar is quoted as saying: “We have not been given any signals that Petr would be made available.

“If that was the case, though, you have to realise that Petr is one of the world’s top goalkeepers and has a certain salary.

“There are not many clubs who could afford to sign him. If he were to leave, we’re discussing two or three clubs in the world.”
