Dani Alves is available on a free transfer, and despite the fullback being 36 years of age he’s an interesting option for top clubs.

If any potentially interested parties wanted to see how the former PSG player did at the Copa America before making a move, then they’ll have had their interest underlined. Not only did Alves help Brazil win the tournament, but he was also named as the best player in it.

Several clubs have been linked, with Manchester City the English option to get most coverage, and now it’s been claimed by AS that Tottenham have ‘been in contact with’ the player’s entourage.

There’s no further update, and it sounds like an initial approach, if the claims are true.

Alves would bring a winning mentality to Tottenham, and he has a record of being very demanding at previous clubs. That’s not in a causing trouble kind of way, but more in a striving for the very best from those around him style.
