Benfica left-back Alex Grimaldo is reportedly a potential option for Tottenham Hotspur this summer according to Football.London.

The 24-year-old, who is primarily known for his ability to get forward and create chances, has registered seven assists in all competitions this campaign (transfermarkt).

Portuguese news outlet A Bola claim that Spurs sent their scouts to Portugal to watch Grimaldo in action in December, with the player rumoured to have a £55million release clause in his contract.

Spurs could potentially be without one of their senior left-backs come the start of next season with the North Londoners said to be prepared to sell Danny Rose to Newcastle United on a permanent deal (Northern Echo).

Danny Rose is almost certainly on his way out of the club and so we will need to replace him in the summer. Grimaldo would be a good squad addition as he will offer more going forward than Ben Davies but I worry that the Spaniard may not be good enough defensively for the Premier League.
