Premier League duo Tottenham and Liverpool are set to miss out on Keisuke Honda, with the midfielder set to join AC Milan according to reports in Japan picked up by talkSPORT.

27-year-old Honda joined current employers CSKA Moscow from Eredivisie club VVV-Venlo in December 2009 and subsequently forged a reputation as one of the Russian top-flight's brightest attacking stars.

His excellent form over the past four years has seen him constantly linked with a switch to one of Europe's so-called bigger leagues, with English top four hopefuls Spurs and Liverpool both linked with his signature in recent months as well as Serie A giants Milan.

However, it appears as if both Andre Villas-Boas and Brendan Rodgers are set to miss out on the talented Japanese playmaker, with those aforementioned Japanese sources picked up by talkSPORT claiming that he is set to move to Massimiliano Allegri's side for free following the expiration of his contract in the new year.

Those same sources also go as far as to claim that Milan have already begun submitting the necessary paperwork to the Italian Football Federation ahead of the proposed switch.

Honda, who has won 48 senior international caps, will be a significant capture for the Rossoneri, with Allegri's men having endured a testing beginning to the 2013/14 domestic campaign.
