According to the renowned journalist, Duncan Castles’ comments in the Transfer Window Podcast (transcripted by the Daily Star), Tottenham Hotspur have reached out to Dani Alves, who is a free agent, to discuss a potential move to North London before the start of the new campaign. Castles shed some light on the Brazilian’s future and said (via the Daily Star),
“I understand that there’s been contact with Tottenham Hotspur about the possibility of Dani moving there in what would seem quite a strange addition for Tottenham, given that this is a club that’s focused on younger players, players whose value will increase, players they can get on reasonably cheap salaries.”
What Will The Brazilian Veteran Bring To North London?
The former PSG full-back was also an integral member of the Brazil squad that won the Copa America earlier this month. At 36, he has got a lot of winner’s medal in his trophy cabinet so he will undoubtedly bring a winning mentality to the North London club if Mauricio Pochettino can convince him to move to England this summer.
Alves can read the game well and can still be quite productive while operating in the right-back position. He has a knack for scoring or creating goals going forward as he takes up dangerous positions in the opposition half. However, he can be a liability in defence at times as he has lost a yard of pace and has a tendency to make reckless challenges inside his own half.
Pochettino should only consider recruiting the Brazilian international if he intends to use him as a squad player next season. Alves does have enough left in his tank to regularly feature in the Premier League so Spurs would have to be careful in how they handle him if he ends up moving to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ahead of the new season.
