Tottenham Hotspur will vie with AC Milan for the signing of Brazilian teenager Casemiro, according to talkSPORT.

The 19-year-old is highly rated in his homeland and caught the eye during the Under-20 FIFA World Championship.

Having sign Sandro in the summer of 2010, Harry Redknapp knows about taking gambles on young Brazilian talent, and he sees Casemiro as a similarly impressive prospect for Tottenham Hotspur.

 

However, reports have emerged that Milan may have jumped the gun ahead of Tottenham in the pursuit of the teen, sending scouts to watch the player.

The Italian giants may even be ready to discuss terms with the club, Sao Paulo, who will be wanting to both Milan and Tottenham at bay for as long as possible so to claim a major fee for the player.
