Spurs and Arsenal chase Slovakian international

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have both been linked with a move for Slovakian keeper Jan Mucha.

The Legia Warsaw stopper reportedly left Poland to hold discussions on his future, with Spurs the most likely destination of the two north London clubs after the player's agent dismissed speculation linking him with the Gunners.

Polish paper Gazeta Wyborcza broke the news about the 27-year-old, who has made 13 international appearances so far in his career.

Mucha made his club debut for homeland club MSK Zilna in 2002, and after a brief loan spell at HFC Humenne made the move to Polish side Legia Warsaw in 2005. Now a regular, Mucha helped lead Warsaw to the runners-up spot in the Ekstraklasa last season.

Spurs have been linked with a handful of keepers after number two Carlo Cudicini injured himself in a motorcycle accident.

Peterborough United stopper Joe Lewis was one of the latest names to be in the frame, but these reports in the Polish media suggest Harry Redknapp is scouring the european market for a goalkeeper to challenge Heurelho Gomes.

The goalkeeper and his agent haven't committed to specific comments over the interest from Spurs, but Mucha was quoted in the press referring to a once in a lifetime move.

"Such an offer comes once in a lifetime and it would be a sin to let it go," said Mucha.
