Inter Milan are interested in signing Tottenham star Sandro as part of a January spending spree, claims the Metro.
Inter's new owner Eick Thohir has promised ample funds to improve the squad when the window reopens in the new year and big plans are in place.
But their first aim will be to sign Tottenham's Brazilian star Sandro, with a £6m bid thought to be enough to test the resolve of Andre Villas-Boas.
Spurs will no doubt be reluctant to sell the 24-year-old for that price but with a packed midfield that includes Etienne Capoue, Paulinho and Mousa Dembele, Sandro may wish to force a move to guarantee first team football.
With the World Cup just months away, the Brazilian international will want to give himself every chance of making Luiz Felipe Scolari's squad and he may not get the opportunities he needs at White Hart Lane.
Still recovering from a serious knee injury sustained last term, Sandro is yet to rekindle the form that endeared him to Tottenham fans in the 2011/12 season.
Andre Villas-Boas signed Capoue and Paulinho in the summer to suggest that the Portuguese doesn't see Sandro as a viable first team option.
Sandro has made just one start in the Premier League so far this season but has played every minute of Tottenham's Europa League campaign.
According to the paper, Inter have retained an interest in Sandro since 2010, when they narrowly missed out on his signature after he opted to join Spurs instead.
