Tottenham are admirers of Porto defender Alex Telles, according to Sky Sports.

Mauricio Pochettino is expected to receive increased transfer funds this summer after agreeing terms on a new five-year contract with the club.

The Argentinian will seek to overhaul his squad as a result of a number of first-team players nearing the exit door.

Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembele are both expected to leave in the comings weeks, while there are also questions marks over the future of Danny Rose.

The left-back has struggled with fitness and form issues this season and has struggled to reclaim his place in the team ahead of Ben Davies.

Reports have linked Rose with a move to Manchester United in recent months, although those rumours have gone quiet and the player himself has revealed his intention is to stay.

Regardless, Tottenham continue to be linked with signing a new left-back, the latest being Telles.

The 25-year-old Brazilian provided 20 assists for Porto in 2017-18 season, and Sky Sports believe Spurs are admirers.

A move for Telles will probably depend on Rose’s future. Keep an eye on this one.
