Tottenham are interested in Leicester’s Ricardo Pereira

As Jose Mourinho plans to rebuild a Spurs squad, he has been consistently let down by the defence. Our backline has kept just one clean sheet in 11 games since the Portuguese took over.

Ricardo Pereira, 26, has emerged as the latest player linked with transforming Tottenham’s fortunes at full-back.

Since arriving at Leicester in 2018, Pereira has established himself as a vital cog in the Foxes’ defence and has made 53 appearances and scored 4 goals. His impact has been so profound that he was also voted Leicester’s player of the season in 2018-19, beating the likes of Jamie Vardy and James Maddison.

Spurs have lacked a reliable option at right-back. Danny Rose has found himself out of favour under Mourinho whereas Serge Aurier hasn’t helped his case with his unreliable performances. Also, Kyle Walker-Peters is likely to leave for Brighton.

Promising right-backs Max Aarons of Norwich City (h/t The Sun) and Nathan Ferguson of West Bromwich Albion (h/t The Sun) have both been linked with moves. Pereira, although older than both of them, is a much more accomplished player, who will bring experience to a defence riddled with doubts.

The 26-year-old was initially seen as a replacement for Manchester City-bound Kyle Walker in 2017. A deal, however, could not be struck and Spurs ended up getting Serge Aurier instead.

Pereira will cost Tottenham in the region of £30million. Paris Saint Germain, Barcelona and Manchester United are also interested in the player. (h/t Express)
