Tottenham have made an approach to sign Juventus right-back Dani Alves, according to a report.
Yahoo UK claim the Premier League club have held initial talks over what would be a sensational summer transfer given the defender’s world-class pedigree.
It is said that Spurs have placed an offer of a two-year contract with the option of a further 12 months on the negotiating table.
Yahoo report that detailed discussions are scheduled to take place between the two parties after Alves competes for Juventus against Real Madrid in the Champions League final on 3 June.
Manchester City are also keeping close tabs on the Brazil international, 34, as he prepares to make a decision on whether to move to the Premier League for the first time in his glittering career.
Alves has had a memorable campaign for Juventus after joining on a free transfer last summer following eight trophy-filled years at Barcelona.
He has been a mainstay for the Italian champions, who are on course for winning a sensational treble.
They top the Serie A table with two matches of the season remaining, face Napoli in the Coppa Italia final on Wednesday night and then aim to secure the third Champions League in the club’s history at the start of next month.
Alves, who has won 100 Brazil caps, has made 30 Juve appearances this season, providing further evidence of his attacking calibre with five goals and seven assists.
