AC Milan are set to test Spurs’ resolve with a £13million bid for Sandro, according to reports.
The San Siro have been impressed with the 22-year-old’s performances at White Hart Lane of late, which have seen him break into the Brazilian national team.
Harry Redknapp holds the former Internacional man in high regard and would be unwilling to let him go, but a sizable offer may tempt Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy to cash in on the player.
Sandro was man of the match in Spurs' home leg when the two sides met in the Champions League knock-out stages last year, and there were many plaudits thrown at Sandro after that game and Milan would have seen his potential close up.
The figure, reported on Italian website Calciomercato, of £13million would be a decent profit for a player that cost £8million just last year, and Levy is not adverse to cashing in occasionally.
The draw of the Italian capital may also be too great for a young man who has shot to prominence in such a short space of time.
There is playing time to be had in Milan, as the Rossoneri look to freshen up an aging midfield that contains such veterans as Gennaro Gattuso, Mark van Bommel and Massimo Ambrosini.
Sandro scored his first international goal earlier this month in Brazil’s friendly win over Gabon. Were he to sign for Milan, he would join compatriots Robinho and Pato.
