Brazil international defender Dani Alves, a free agent after leaving Italian football club Juventus in June, is reportedly being sought by clubs in England and France.

English Premier League club Manchester City are considered favourites to sign Alves due to the influence of head coach Pep Guardiola, who was Alves' manager at Barcelona, reports Xinhua news agency.

But the 34-year-old could be swayed by lucrative offers from Chelsea, Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain.

Alves, who is currently on a holiday in Brazil, would make a decision "within days", it said.

The right-back made 33 appearances for Juventus last season, helping the club to their sixth straight Italian Serie A title.
