Hi all ,
On the textbooks I 've got I always read that
implementig a single cycle cpu requires two memories
one for data and one for instructions.

why this happens ?

Using a single memory with two read ports (see figure below) wouldn't it be
possibile to fetch the instruction and read
the operand specified in it during the same cycle ?
