Roma look to tempt Tottenham with swap

Could Sandro be set for a switch to Italy?

AC Milan and Roma are both interested in signing Spurs midfielder Sandro next summer, according to reports in Italy (Talksport)

The 22 year old Brazilian has impressed many since moving to White Hart Lane from Internacional last year. An £8 million fee was involved then, and it is believed a bid almost double that would be needed for Spurs boss Harry Redknapp to even consider allowing Sandro to leave.

AC Milan are said to be considering a £13 million bid, as the Rossoneri look to freshen up an ageing midfield that contains Mark Van Bommel, Gennaro Gattuso and Massimo Ambrosini. Whether such a bid would be enough to persuade Spurs to sell remains to be seen.

Roma are not set to rival Milan with a cash bid, however they are set to propose a swap deal with Spurs. The Italian club are looking to offer striker Mirko Vucinic in exchange for Sandro, with Roma said to value Vucinic at around £15 million.

Harry Redknapp is desperate to add to his forward line, and with Emmanuel Adebayor’s long term role uncertain, Vucinic, a player who has interested the club in the past, would fit the bill perfectly.
