Spurs to capitalise on Porto’s financial fair play problems

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing FC Porto left-back Alex Telles who will be available for a reduced fee with the Portuguese club needing money to comply with Financial Fair Play conditions.

According to Portuguese Jornal de Noticias, Spurs are said to have entered the race to sign the player who has been heavily linked with a move to fellow Premier League outfit Everton.

Chelsea have also been keen to sign the 25-year-old in the past, having had a £20million offer rejected for the player who has chipped in with an impressive 19 assists during the season just gone.

In typical Daniel Levy fashion, he could turn the screw on Porto’s valuation considering the financial predicament they currently find themselves in.

It remains to be seen whether Danny Rose will be leaving Tottenham Hotspur this summer, and if he does, Mauricio Pochettino will need to bring in another left-back to compete with Ben Davies for the starting berth.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Well in the end it s always a matter of money isn’t it? But if I could make a choice, I would rather go for Ryan Sessegnon.
    Now , speaking of FIFA FFP , another club, interested in offers ,would be PSG., who are under investigation again. Recently seen that we might be interested in Adrien Rabiot. Good choice, but I would rather go for his teammate Julian Draxler, more versatile,(attacking midfielder and winger), faster, 2 footed and it wouldnt surprise me if he d come for less money.. And if want away , “Isco” doesnt work out because of wage structure, both theese midfielders would. COYS!

  2. After seeing the Liverpool v Real Madrid game today Spurs should break the bank to bring back our old hero Bale. He single handedly destroyed the Liverpool defence and showed us why we should spare no time in
    getting him back in Lily-white colours. Still got the speed, massive amounts of skill. With Bale we need only sign two other proven names and we can then give Man City a good hiding.
