There seems to be a trend evolving where every player which Andre Villas-Boas was rumoured to want at Chelsea are now being linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
AVB is a big fan of Porto full back Alvaro Pereira and tried to bring him to Chelsea but a fee could not be agreed between both clubs. The 26-year-old was said to be keen to move to Chelsea and they are now back in the market for the full-back.
Pereira is under contract at Porto until 2016 and has a release clause of £25.7million. Spurs and Chelsea are said to want to only do business for around £13million but face stiff opposition from Napoli who are rumoured to be set to offer £12.8million.
