It looks as if the right-back position could be very different at Tottenham next season, with Kieran Trippier already out the door after being sold to Atletico yesterday (BBC).
Not only this, but the Daily Mail have reported that Spurs may also look to sell their second-choice right-back from last season, Serge Aurier, this summer.
This would leave Pochettino with academy graduate, Kyle Walker-Peters, and a potential converted right-back in fellow Argentine, Juan Foyth.
However, Duncan Castles believes that Spurs may still be looking at bringing Dani Alves to North London to share the right full-back burden next season.
He claims that Tottenham held talks with the Brazilian this month, but Alves has a number of offers from the Premier League, Serie A, and his native Brazil.
Castles believes that Alves will decide and a move will be resolved by the end of this month, meaning that we will know if he wants to join Spurs in the next couple of weeks.
Would you want Alves at Tottenham for a couple of years?
Castles said (Transfer Podcast): “One of the interesting aspects of this deal [Trippier to Atletico] was that we told you a couple of weeks ago that Tottenham were preparing to sell both Trippier and Serge Aurier.
“Now one of those players is moving out. We also told you that they’ve been in discussions with Dani Alves about the possibility of coming in and sharing the right-back role with Kyle Walker-Peters.
“That deal has not been secured, I can update you on that and Dani is still choosing between a number of options.
“As we’ve said before he has options to go back to Brazil, he also has strong options in Serie A.
“It looks like that could be resolved before the end of this month.”
