Tottenham Hotspur have become the latest club to be linked with a move for Inter Milan rebel and Manchester United target Wesley Sneijder, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The London Metro reports how the 28-year-old has not featured for the Nerazzurri since September, after he refused to accept a pay-cut of around €2million - reducing his annual wages from €6million to €4million.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen to find a replacement for Luka Modric, who left White Hart Lane for Real Madrid during the summer, and has identified the Holland international as the man to fill the creative void in north London.

However, Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a long-term admirer of Sneijder's, and was heavily linked with a move for him back in August.

The Old Trafford outfit are still believed to be monitoring the Serie A playmaker's situation at the San Siro, and could rival Tottenham for his signature when the transfer window reopens in January.

A fee of around £8million is reportedly all that's needed to bring Sneijder to the Premier League, which is a far cry from the valuations that were being touted in the summer.
