Spurs face Milan fight over Portuguese defender deal

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan are set to battle for the signature of defender Joao Pereira in January.

The Sporting Lisbon right back has been impressing in the Primeira Liga at the Estádio José Alvalade, leading to links across Europe for the 27-year-old.

AC Milan lead the chase in Italy, whilst talkSPORT claims Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is also keen on bringing the player to White Hart Lane.

After allowing Alan Hutton to leave the club during the summer transfer window, Tottenham Hotspur are keen to strengthen their defence at the next available opportunity.


Injury concerns continue to hang over a string of players in the position for the club as well, with Ledley King and William Gallas both susceptible to injuries at Spurs given their recent track record.

Contracted at Sporting until 2014, Tottenham Hotspur will have to make a sizable offer to secure the player's signature ahead of their rivals.
