Spurs star targeted in £12m swoop - reports

Published Add your comment

Tottenham playmaker Rafael Van der Vaart is a reported January target for AC Milan.

According to talkSPORT, the Italian giants would be willing to pay £12 million for the 28-year-old, who moved to north London last year from Real Madrid.

It would, however, seemingly be unlikely that Spurs would consider letting Van der Vaart leave White Hart Lane, although the Dutchman is no longer a guaranteed starter.

With Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe quickly striking up a decent partnership since the former's move to Spurs, Harry Redknapp may stick with the 4-4-2 formation he is currently adopting.


Van der Vaart normally operates at his best behind a lone frontman - formally Peter Crouch - and may have to wait for a dip in form by either Adebayor or Defoe before a regular starting berth becomes available.

AC Milan, meanwhile, are also able to offer the Holland international Champions League football - something Spurs currently can't boast.
