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.

  • I love Daniel Levy and would defend him for what he has done for my beloved club, but I am the kind of guy that calls a spade a spade. Sorry Mr Levy but the best manager that we have had for years asked you to change the way we do business and to start showing the world that we are a big team by acting like one.
    Yes you started so well and brought in the replacement we so needed for Dembele and what a signing ‘well done’. Then nothing, why? Why stop? Why sell players without replacements ready to go, when we were already short handed last season? Why leave it until basically the last week, when you know Poche likes to bed them in with a hard pre-season together? How can Arsenal with only Europa League and little funds be doing better business than a team that has Champions League to offer and a much bigger budget?
    So Mr Levy I ask you to take a step back and think what are we doing wrong within the transfer windows because It just doesn’t make sense that we have let 4/5 players leave that’s inc Dembele and only 1 person into replace Dembele from an already depleted squad.
    Time is running out we need quality in so imo we should keep every player at the club right now no more out until we have cover please, walk away from Paulo Dybala unless it is close which I doubt so then you should hurry up and get Lo Celso over the line as it’s meant to be close, also we need a proper RB so imo Dani Alves is quality cover on a one year contract and he needs a team right now
    Plus we need a player on the wings and cover up front so imo Wilfried Zaha can cover both and he is a top drawer player and he wont need time to bed into the Prem. Ryan Sessegnon would be a great squad player if we can get him for around the 20 mil but any higher tell him to play his last season for Fulham and we will see him Jan or next summer.
    That’s all we need as long as you keep Rose, Eriksen, Toby and everyone else in the squad that got us into the CL final and back into the CL this season.
    Then you need to sit down and give Eriksen, Toby, Rose and Vertonghen new contracts. I’m ready to go to work if you need me lol. I’m a nobody and yes I don’t realize how hard or the work that goes into the in’s and out’s but if Arsenal can do better than us this season then the person in charge of transfers must be making it even harder on our club imo and sorry! COYS!

  • If we are keeping KWP and Aurier there really isn’t any point in signing another RB. We would just be overloading that area.

  • I love KWP but he is not ready yet. Yes he’s good for the cup matches but not ready for CL or Prem sorry but true. If he had been given more games last season when no RB was good enough it might be a different story but he wasn’t.
