Tottenham have told Napoli they can have their injury prone Brazilian midfielder, Sandro, if they increase their offer to £20 million according to the Daily Mail.
Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, believes the 25-year old Brazilian is the perfect midfielder for his team to help push for Serie A honours this season, after finishing third last term.
Sandro joined Tottenham in 2010 and has only made 76 appearances following a series of injuries, his most recent a knee which he sustained against Queens Park Rangers in January, putting him out for the remainder of the season.
Prior to the injury, Sandro was showing the sort of form that was expected following his arrival in 2010, and was affectionately labeled the: "beast" by Spurs fans.
Despite this the player came in for criticism from the then Spurs boss, Tim Sherwood, however it is believed following the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino the player is keen to prove himself at White Heart Lane and is looking forward to the new season with the club.
The latest interest could very well change the mindset of the Brazilian considering the opportunity of Champions League football that Napoli can offer, and the fact that it appears Rafa Benitez wants the player more than Pochettino does.
Suggestions are that Napoli are willing to meet the players wages but have only tabled a £10 million offer, half of what Spurs have valued the player at.
Rafa Benitez believes that an offer of £12 million could push the move through, especially if Tottenham can secure the services of Pochettino's former Southampton midfielder, Morgan Schneiderlin.
Napoli are also reportedly keeping an eye on Moussa Sissoko, after his decision to leave Newcastle United this summer.
The Magpies secured the services of Siem de Jong on Tuesday evening and Napoli believe that Newcastle will be happy to simply recoup the outlay for Sissoko when they acquired him from Toulouse in 2013.
