Tottenham have reportedly informed Napoli of the transfer fee it will take to prise Sandro away from the club this summer. Napoli are keen to acquire the services of the Brazilian midfielder, who has also been linked with a move to Chelsea.
Sandro was restricted to only 25 appearances for Spurs owing to a calf issue during the recently concluded club campaign, while a serious knee injury kept him out for half of the previous season. And not, it would seem, Spurs are prepared to sell the 25-year-old if the price is right.
According to Goal.com, Napoli are preparing an initial bid of £9.7 million for Sandro and, if the player were to move to the Stadio San Paolo, he would supposedly earn £8.1 million over the duration of a five-year contract.
Spurs, however, are holding out for more. It is claimed Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has set £11.3 million as his asking price for Sandro, and it remains to be seen if Napoli are able to conclude a deal that would seem him leave White Hart Lane.
There is also reported interest in Sandro from Chelsea, with Jose Mourinho seemingly in the market for midfield reinforcements. Chelsea have lost Frank Lampard after 13 glorious years at Stamford Bridge, while Jon Obi Mikel could be off, and gaps will need to be plugged.
