News Tottenham Transfer Rumours

With the departure of Kyle Walker to Premier League rivals Manchester City, Tottenham are looking into the transfer market to replace the England international. Rumours are suggesting that FC Porto defender Ricardo Pereira (23) is a primary target for Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino, as they look to push for the title again next season.

Portuguese source (@Ojogo) report that Tottenham have had a bid of £13 million rejected by Porto. The right-back has a £23 million release in his contract, as Tottenham will likely be forced to pay this if they want to acquire his signature. Pereira has spent the last two seasons on loan at French side Nice, and has played for his Portugal at senior level.

Italian giants Juventus are also interested in Ricardo Pereira due to Dani Alves’ recent move to Paris-Saint Germain, according to reports. If Tottenham want Pereira to be Walker’s replacement, they’ll have to act fast.
