AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has leant weight to rumours of Klass-Jan Huntelaar moving to England, with Lukas Podolski lined up as a replacement.
Huntelaar has been linked with a move to the Premier League since January, when West Ham were known admirers but he will want to set his sights a little higher now.
Huntelaar would give Spurs’ side much needed experience of European football but Roy Hodgson could turn to the Dutchman should Fernando Torres leave Anfield this summer.
Speaking to Sky Italia, Galliani dropped a hint that a move to England could be on the cards for Huntelaar, with Podolski a good alternative.
“Podolski will arrive only on one condition – Huntelaar will be sold to the Premier League and this will open up new economic scenarios for us,” he said.
