Chelsea are set to make a surprise £12 million bid for Tottenham midfielder Sandro, according to The Metro.
The report has suggested that the Brazilian ace is interested in departing White Hart Lane this summer, and the Blues will now make a take it or leave it bid for the player's services in the near future.
Ex-Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood dropped the midfielder from his squad last season, however it appears that the Spurs hierarchy are reluctant to let him leave.
As well as Chelsea, it appears that the player has been tracked by French moneybags Monaco in recent time. Italian duo Roma and Napoli have also been credited with interest in the player's signature, with the latter having already failed in an £8m bid.
It now remains to be seen as to when Chelsea put together their package to try and take the midfielder to Stamford Bridge, but it appears that the club have a back-up plan if they don't land the Brazilian.
The Blues could instead opt for out of contract Atletico Madrid ace Tiago this summer. It certainly looks set to be a busy summer for the Stamford Bridge outfit, with Mourinho seemingly intent on adding to his options in the middle of the park.
Tottenham fans, meanwhile, will be hoping the club don't sell the star to their London rivals, as they go in search of success in the 2014/15 campaign.
