Premier League clubs linked with bid in Alex Sandro next club tips
FootyOn experts give Alex Sandro next club tips after Juventus confirm they’ve received a ‘substantial offer’ for the Brazil left back.
The Old Lady may be left looking for new names in both full back berths after news this week emerged over the futures of both Alex Sandro and compatriot Dani Alves.
While the latter looks likely to have his contract with the Old Lady terminated a year early, seemingly paving the way for Alves to reunite with ex-Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, Alex Sandro is the subject of a substantial offer.
It is rumoured to have come from a top Premier League team and this is reflected in BetVictor’s market on the Brazil international’s future.
We assess the potential in these Alex Sandro next club tips…
Why not follow anticipated Alves arrival at Etihad?
One English team are especially short at full back and that is Man City.
Guardiola needs names in both berths, having released former France international duo Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna.
Long-serving Pablo Zabaleta was also out of contract at the Etihad, so signed on a free for West Ham United.
Man City have both the need and means to sign Alex Sandro, so head the betting at 2/1.
Several Brazilians, including new arrival Ederson, Fernandinho and Gabriel Jesus are already on their books.
Chelsea expected to strengthen this summer
Premier League champions Chelsea are also linked with Alex Sandro, so could be behind the bid.
Blues boss Antonio Conte turned things around at Stamford Bridge by changing to a 3-4-3 system that promoted attacking wing back play.
Alex Sandro is very much in the Roberto Carlos mould, so that style of football is sure to suit.
Spanish incumbent Marcos Alonso had a superb season this past term with Chelsea, but is lacking competition.
Liverpool still need left back
Jurgen Klopp is already buying from Serie A this summer as he nears the reported £34,000,000 capture of Roma and Egypt winger Mohamed Salah.
One long-standing area in which his Liverpool team needs a natural option is left back, with utility man James Milner filling in there this past season.
Alex Sandro represents a more expensive alternative to other rumoured targets Andy Robertson and Ryan Sessegnon.
Now the Reds are back in the Champions League, though, they could set their sights on a bigger name rather than up-and-comers.
Spurs may need cover as Rose recovers
Tottenham, meanwhile, have been without first-choice left back Danny Rose for some time because of a knee injury.
Mauricio Pochettino often played with three centre halves and wing backs this past season, so Alex Sandro could slot in nicely.
At 26, Alex Sandro doesn’t quite fit the profile of young players Spurs’ Argentine coach tends to sign.
There is a need for some cover, though, with speculation about Kyle Walker’s future persisting.
