Alves is a free agent, and Spurs are said to have made contact with the right-back over a potential move.
Journalist Duncan Castles said: “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.”
The idea of Alves coming to Tottenham has gone down well with supporters of the North London club.
Alves is 36, but still seems to have plenty left in the tank, after a wonderful Copa America with Brazil.
And Tottenham supporters think that bringing Alves in would be an excellent way to solve their problems at right-back.
Would love this more than the Ndombele deal!— Louis Evans (@le54) July 11, 2019
This would be exactly the signing me need for the dressing room— Chris Kyriacou (@MrChrisKyriacou) July 11, 2019
Serial winner. Needed.— TanguyBall (@RelightMyDier) July 11, 2019
We should get him. He can still play! Had a great copa America and has won a lot and has a lot of experience so would help in the dressing room. A lot of our players could learn off him. Better than what we got also.— Alex (@LxcasMoura) July 11, 2019
I’m begging this needs to happen— . (@ShaqVII) July 11, 2019
Think it would be a great idea with all that experience - however because of his age cannot see club doing this— Michael Burdon (@Woodlandmikey) July 11, 2019
Absolute no brainer... Just won player of tournament at Copa, still fit as ever... A winner, brings that mentality, you'd have to have him for a year r 2..— Jason Lee (@Lee88Jay) July 11, 2019
Take him now, do it— Lewis Hawes (@LewisHawess) July 11, 2019
If Alves did come in at Spurs he would surely step straight into their starting line-up.
Tottenham currently have three options on the right hand side of defence, in the form of Kieran Trippier, Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters, but question marks linger over the trio.
