Report: Arsenal and Tottenham interested in free agent Dani Alves

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are both reportedly keen on signing full-back Dani Alves.

The Brazilian is currently unattached after leaving Paris Saint-Germain after two trophy-laden seasons.

Before his stint in the French capital, Alves spent a year with Juventus and eight with Barcelona, where he established himself as arguably the best right-back in football.

Alves, now 36, has now emerged as a possible target for north London giants Arsenal and Spurs according to Mundo Deportivo, who claim Premier League champions Manchester City are also keen.

Despite his advancing years, Alves showed at the Copa America that he still has the quality to be of use to a top side.

 

TBR’s view

Alves would be a coup for either of the London clubs on a free transfer.

Not only can he still do it at the highest level, but the South American’s incredible trophy cabinet suggests he has that winning mentality that would be hugely beneficial for both dressing rooms.

Arguably Spurs could do with him more, with Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier both available for transfer.

That said, Hector Bellerin could miss the first handful of games of the season through injury, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles the only source of cover.

Given the Laurent Koscielny situation, having a winner and a leader like Alves could be just the ticket for the Gunners.
