Tottenham join Bayern in race to sign Ricardo Pereira

Ricardo Pereira looked to be heading nowhere at Porto before joining OGC Nice on loan last summer where he really flourished.

The Portuguese right-back played a starring role for Nice, scoring twice and providing four assists in 24 Ligue 1 games as they qualified for next season’s Champions League.

Pereira joined Porto in 2013 for just £1.4m but the Liga NOS side are ready to cash-in on the 23-year-old this summer for £20m.

Premier League runners-up Tottenham are said to be interested in signing Pereira if they offload Kyle Walker to Manchester City, while Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich and French side PSG are all interested also according to the Independent.

Bayern, still reeling from the loss of Philipp Lahm who has retired from football, will be in the market for a right-back and Pereira makes a lot of sense.

Capped twice by Portugal, Pereira can operate in either a fullback or wing-back role which suits both Bayern and Dortmund as they both alternative betwen both systems.
