​Tottenham have approached Juventus right-back Dani Alves over a potential summer move, ​Ya​hooSport have reported.

Spurs are believed to be looking for a potential replacement for Kyle Walker, whose future at the club has grown increasingly uncertain.

Manchester City have also been linked with a move for Alves, although the experienced Brazilian is said to be waiting for assurances of first team football before deciding on his destination.

It would be a distinct change in approach for Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino, who has assembled a predominantly young side, although the addition of Alves could be in an attempt to add experience and a proven trophy winner.

The 34-year-old has excelled in the latter stages of the Champions League for Juventus in recent weeks, having joined the Bianconeri from Barcelona last summer.

Alves has made 18 appearances in the Serie A, with Juventus set to secure their sixth successive Scudetto. 


Speaking to ​the Guardian last year, Alves spoke of his admiration of the Premier League, and his aim to one day play in the division.

“It’s special: there’s a corner and it’s like it’s a goal," he said. "I’ve always said that playing in England is something I’ve got pending. I don’t know when but I’d like to play there, to experience in person what I see from the sofa. The way the people live football. Wow, it’s incredible. Full stadiums, living every moment.”
