Spurs join Cancelo race

Tottenham Hotspur have joined Juventus in the race for Valencia full-back Joao Cancelo with a bidding war set to commence at €25m, say reports.

Plaza Deportiva pick up on reports in the Daily Mail that Spurs have informed Los Che of their interest in the Portugal international and were informed no deal had yet been struck with Juve.

The North London side are in the market for a right-back following Kyle Walker’s big-money move to Manchester City, with Spurs not making a first-team signing yet this summer.

Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly had the 23-year-old scouted and analysed since the European Under-21 Championship in Poland earlier this summer.

Signed from Benfica in 2015 for €15m, Cancelo has made 73 La Liga appearances for Los Che and netted three international goals in four appearances.
