Tottenham have demanded £20m from Napoli for midfielder Sandro.

According to the Daily Mail, the 25-year old has attracted interest from Rafa Benitez's side, despite making just 25 appearances last season.

The ex-Liverpool boss believes the Brazilian would be the perfect midfield addition to help Napoli improve on their third place finish last season, as the club look to maintain a high finish in the table next season and also to go far in the Champions League.

New boss Mauricio Pochettino isn't too eager to see the midfielder leave White Hart Lane, but he is willing to listen to offers of £20m and above. However, that asking price may be too much for the Italian side and it could just warn them off making a bid.

Sandro still has two years left on his current deal at Tottenham and while he had an injury ravaged campaign last season, Pochettino is still keen to let him have a go in midfield next term.

That isn't to say he'll be staying at Tottenham. He could become surplus to requirements as the summer continues, with manager Pochettino looking to strengthen his midfield, with moves for players such as Esteban Cambiasso and Claudio Marchisio expected to be made.

If those two are captured, then Sandro may end up pushed out of White Hart Lane for much less than the £20m asking price anyway, which could be good news for Rafa Benitez and his men.

Earlier on in the transfer window, Chelsea were also tracking him and if the 25-year old suddenly becomes a liability, and available for much cheaper, than they too could renew their interest.
