Tottenham may struggle to secure a deal for Brazilian youngster Felipe Anderson with AC Milan prepared to offer Santos the services of Robinho in exchange for the playmaker.
Chelsea and Manchester United may yet miss out on Neymar with Barcelona reported to be leading the race for his signature, but Spurs will be hopeful of sealing a deal for teammate Anderson.
However, AC Milan are very much in the hunt for Anderson and their resources may prove greater than those of Spurs in their pursuit of the 19-year-old.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, AC Milan are ready to offer Santos former charge Robinho as a make-weight in the hope of bringing Anderson to the San Siro - an offer that may prove too difficult to reject.
Spurs, however, may be able to rely on the influence of Brazil midfielder Sandro who could convince Anderson that a move to White Hart Lane will be most beneficial for his future.
