Spurs ace keen on Serie A switch

Published Add your comment

With Roma expressing an interest in signing Tottenham midfielder Sandro, the Brazil international says he would be keen on an eventual switch to Serie A.

Roma, it is claimed, made an approach for the 22-year-old during the summer, although a formal offer never came to fruition.

Spurs, though, are unwilling to sell Sandro - although he does have ambitions to play in Italy at some stage in his career.

"I am happy Roma were interested in me, but there was nothing concrete," Sandro told Radio Mana Sport 24.

"An Italian future? Sure. It was not just Roma who were after me this summer. There were other teams, but there was never a concrete offer.


He added: "I am happy that a great team like Roma showed an interest and I would like to play in Italy in future."

Sandro joined Spurs last summer from Internacional for a fee in the region of £9 million and made his debut in the September, during a 4-1 defeat to Arsenal in the league cup.

He later an played an integral role in Spurs' famous victory against AC Milan at the San Siro, while he was named man-of-the-match after the second leg.

The holding player will, however, will be out of Spurs action until November, having undergone knee surgery in July.
