Dani Alves and if the Arsenal, Chelsea or Tottenham could make a summer move for the PSG star

Dani Alves is destined to become one of the best free agents of the summer.

The Brazilian star has signaled her intention to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of her contract, which means she is available to discuss the terms with any club before a summer change.

Having played for Seville, Barcelona and PSG and having collected over 100 appearances in Brazil, the 36-year-old has a CV that is the envy of many players in the game, which means that it is intended to be requested.

But could our London clubs be interested in a move? Let's take a look.

Arsenal

Strengthening the defense is one of the highest priorities for the Gunners this summer, but Dani Alves will not be the answer.

In addition to the huge wage demands of the Brazilian, it is difficult to see where the 36-year-old will line up with Unai Emery with Hector Bellerin looking for a seat at the Emirates Stadium.

The combination of Alves' financial needs and the fact that a right-back is not a priority for Emery means that the chances of the Gunners entering the competition for the Brazilian are at least the best.

Chelsea

The easiest of the lot.

The prohibition of transfer by Chelsea for the next Windows is a move for Dani Alves – or any other player in this sense – to say the least a pipedream.

The Blues are unable to register players over the age of 16, and while they can sign the player in order to register them next summer, the probability that the 36-year-old will entertain a year in nature or a loan of a season away from Stamford Bridge they are minimal.

If you were fantasizing about this move, I would save your money.

Tottenham Hotspur

Mauricio Pochettino's team is probably the most likely of the three to make a move, but it is still unlikely.

The speculations linking Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier with a trip strengthened the club's need to defend the right side, for which Dani Alves would certainly be in good standing.

However, the recruitment model under Pochettino was very focused on recruiting and developing high-potential talent, which means that a move for Dani Alves would be a huge contradiction of the work that was done before.

A move for Alves would almost certainly make him the highest paid player at Tottenham, and whether risking upsetting the team with a move for the veteran is highly unlikely.
