Tottenham express interest in Fulham midfielder Andreas Pereira

Tottenham Hotspur have expressed an interest in Fulham midfielder Andreas Pereira, according to Brazilian news outlet Globo.

The midfielder wants to embark on a new chapter away from Craven Cottage but has postponed talks over his future until after the Copa America tournament.

Fulham finished in the top half of the table in his debut campaign, with Pereira notching four goals and six assists in 33 Premier League games.

He scored three goals and seven assists in the league to help Fulham finish 13th last term, but he could be heading elsewhere this summer.

Pereira previously rejected offers from Spanish giants Atletico Madrid and Saudi Pro League club Al-Ettifaq to honour a gentleman’s agreement with Fulham manager Marco Silva.

However, all parties are now willing to listen to offers, and a move across the capital could be on the cards for Pereira.

Spurs can do better than Pereira

Pereira progressed through the youth ranks at Manchester United but only made 75 appearances for the first team.

He spent most of his time on loan at Granada, Valencia, Lazio and Flamengo before finally sealing a permanent move to Fulham in 2022.

The Brazilian has plenty of Premier League experience, having made 82 appearances for Fulham, and has certainly been a game-changer for them.

However, Tottenham can do better than Pereira and should consider signing a more elite number ten to challenge James Maddison next season.

Maddison was Spurs’ chief creator last term, but his campaign was affected by injury problems, and they struggled to be effective in the final third without him.

Tottenham should consider a high-profile target who can add better quality and depth to the midfield as they look to challenge for Champions League football next term.
