Tottenham are considering making a January loan-move for Inter Milan full-back Alvaro Pereira, according to talkSPORT.
Andre Villas-Boas is a known admirer of the Uruguayan, having been linked with him during his brief stint in charge of Chelsea, and is said to be in the market for a new full-back.
The 27-year-old has been highlighted as a potential reinforcement for the Lilywhites, who only have Danny Rose as an out and out left-back, as the Spurs boss looks to ensure that they are adequately covered in all areas of the pitch.
And according to sources in Italy, Pereira is seeking a move in January, having only managed to get two games under his belt in the Serie A for Inter this term.
The versatile defender enjoyed massive success the first time he was managed by Villas-Boas, with the pair winning a famous treble when the latter was in charge of Porto.
It is believed that any move will only be a temporary one as Pereira looks for game-time, but nonetheless it is sure to spark competition from rivals.
