Tottenham duo targeted by Serie A giants

Serie A outfit Roma are eyeing a potential January swoop for Tottenham midfield duo Lewis Holtby and Sandro, according to talkSPORT. 

Holtby, who only arrived at White Hart Lane in January after moving from Bundesliga side Schalke 04, has yet to feature in the Premier League this season after Spurs' significant summer transfer haul saw competition for places in midfield dramatically increase at White Hart Lane.

Brazilian international Sandro, meanwhile, has featured twice as he continues his recovery from a particularly troublesome cruciate ligament injury sustained in a Premier League fixture away to Queens Park Rangers last season. An injury, the 24-year-old claimed earlier this summer, that forced him to consider his future in the game.

But according to talkSPORT, the duo could be set for moves away from North London this winter, with Rudi Garcia's Roma believed to be plotting a January offer for the pair. The club are rumoured to be looking for reinforcements after the summer departure of Argentine starlet Erik Lamela, and have reportedly identified Holtby and Sandro as ideal candidates to bolster their ranks.

The Rome club have enjoyed a fantastic start to the 2013/14 domestic season, recording two consecutive victories over Livorno and Hellas Verona without conceding a single goal. They return to action following the recent international break with a trip to Parma on Monday night.
