Juventus are also looking at Tottenham's right-back targets - Ricardo Pereira of Porto and Valencia's Joao Cancelo.

Tottenham Hotspur are on the hunt for a new right-back following the sale of Kyle Walker to Manchester City and seem to have identified two potential candidates.

The first is Ricardo Pereira, who the Evening Standard says is valued at around £22m by Porto, while the other is Valencia's Joao Cancelo - whom Tutto Mercato Web claim is also worth £22m.

The problem is, both reports also outline that Juventus could cause problems for Spurs in their pursuit as they search for a new right-back of their own following Dani Alves' move to Paris Saint-Germain.

There has been confusion in Portugal over who will represent Pereira in a potential deal to move to North London, giving Juve the opportunity to join the race.

Meanwhile, Calciomercato reports how the Old Lady have a strong relationship with Valencia after recent transfers of Neto and Simone Zaza to the Mestalla Stadium from Turin and want to use that to their advantage when trying to sign Cancelo.

The Serie A champions are also in for AC Milan's Mattia De Sciglio, which will give Tottenham some hope, although it is understood Juventus are looking to sign two right-backs this summer.
