Tottenham Hotspur have set their sights on a summer swoop for Manchester City winger James Milner, reports the Sunday Sun.
Milner, who is set to be part of England's World Cup squad, has seen his first team opportunities limited at the Etihad this season after the arrival of Spain star Jesus Navas.
14 of his 21 league appearances have come from the substitute bench and the midfielder was an unused sub in his side's 3-1 Carling Cup final win over Sunderland last weekend.
The 28-year-old former Newcastle United and Aston Villa midfielder only has a year left on his current City contract, so it is likely that manager Manuel Pellegrini will look to cash in on the England man after the World Cup.
Despite his limited playing time this season, Milner has remained a consistent part of Roy Hodgson's England plans and has been used in a defensive midfield role that could be incorporated into England's game plan against the stronger nations in Brazil in June.
However, Spurs boss Tim Sherwood could be set to give Milner the chance to reignite his Premier League career and help the club in their bid to become a regular top-four side.
