Rumoured Tottenham target, Thiago Silva is willing to reduce his weekly wage demands in order to push through a summer switch to the Premier League, according to The Telegraph.

The Brazillian veteran is reportedly willing to accept less than £100,000 per-week if it means he can work out a move to the Premier League.

Silva will be out of contract with Paris Saint Germain at the end of the month with both Spurs and Everton reportedly interested in the centre-back (The Sun).

The 35-year-old was reportedly aiming for around £190,000 per-week, however, after realising no Premier League club would pay that amid the coronavirus pandemic he has quickly decreased his demands, according to RMC Sport.

It has been suggested Jose Mourinho is hoping to bolster his defence this summer with Jan Vertonghen set for the exit when his contract comes to an end.

Silva has featured 310 times for PSG across all competitions since joining the Ligue 1 champions in 2012 (Transfermarkt).

Perhaps for a one/two-year-deal, this could make sense as Silva would provide a wealth of experience and a winning mentality. The likes of Japhet Tanganga and Davinson Sanchez could learn an awful lot from the seven-time Ligue 1 champion.
