Tottenham’s right-back situation isn’t entirely healthy. The Lilywhites could do with a new man to come in alongside Kyle Walker-Peters and Serge Aurier, and Dani Alves could be that man. The Brazilian recently sent out something of a come and get me plea on Instagram, and he’d be a solid option at Spurs.
The 36-year-old is a free agent having left PSG at the end of his two-year deal at the French club this summer, and with Tottenham previously being linked with the player and having issues at right-back this one makes complete sense.
The only small issue when it comes to Alves is the wages he would require. The Sun recently revisited Dani Alves and looked at his potential options. Arsenal have also surfaced as one of then, and the article profiled the required wages to bring in the Brazilian.
According to the report, the Copa America winner is prepared to take a pay-cut from the £230,000 per/week which he earned whilst at PSG, but he still requires wages in the region of £200,000 per/week, something that Tottenham may struggle to offer.
At the moment, the Lilywhites’ highest earner is Harry Kane on £200,000 per/week, so if Daniel Levy can come to some sort of agreement with Dani Alves and lower his desired wages even further than the Brazilian may be convinced to sign, and looking at his on-field ability alone, he’d make a great option.
At the age of 36-years-old, Alves may have lost some of the blistering pace that made him such an impressive attacking option at Barcelona and Sevilla, but he still has the talent to shine with his technical ability and experience, and the wealth of knowledge he can pass onto Walker-Peters could also prove invaluable.
