Tottenham Hotspur have dropped their asking price for Brazilian midfielder Sandro, something which may well prompt Napoli to launch a bid.

Napoli are keen on Sandro, but have been put off by Spurs' asking price, which they have considered excessive.

It forced the Azzurri to look elsewhere, with Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini and Liverpool's Lucas Leiva on the wanted list.

But according to Italian broadcaster Sportitalia, that may now change after Spurs indicated they will accept a lower price for Sandro.


Tottenham had originally been looking for around €15m for Sandro, but have now slashed that figure to below €10m.


Napoli are now considering whether to make a move to sign the Brazilian before the transfer window slams shut.

Sandro was on the bench for Spurs' midweek win away in Cyprus against AEL Limassol in the Europa League and appears surplus to requirements for club boss Mauricio Pochettino.

The Brazilian joined Tottenham in 2010 from Internacional.
