Tottenham Hotspur are planning to make Joao Pereira one of three targets for the January transfer window, according to Metro.
Despite stating they weren't going to improve on their squad in the upcoming window, Harry Redknapp has his eye on three new players.
And Pereira is now under consideration, with a £8 million price tag attached to his contract that is unlikely to temper Spurs' interest
The right-back has reputation of a hothead, and has a poor disciplinary record, but manger Redknapp believes he could just the player he needs to fill in at right-back for Tottenham.
The players versatility, which means he could also occupy a role on the wing, replace the often injured Aaron Lennon, makes him a viable option for Spurs.
