Sporting Lisbon defender on his way to White Hart Lane?
Tottenham Hotspur are contemplating signing Sporting Lisbon right back Joao Pereira, according to reports in Portugal.
The Portuguese international defender is also capable of filling in on the right wing, and with Aaron Lennon starting this season in not particularly good form, Pereira would offer some decent competition.
However, Spurs will face competition to sign Pereira in January from Serie A champions AC Milan, claim talkSPORT.
The Italian club are at least able to offer UEFA Champions League football, and Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp will have to convince Pereira that the project underway at White Hart Lane is worth joining.
