Tottenham close on Sneijder - report

Tottenham could be set for a major boost in the January transfer window after reports in Italy claimed Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has agreed terms on a move.

Sneijder, 28, has been out of the Inter first-team for three-months, with Nerazzurri head coach Andrea Stramaccioni insisting Dutchman's absence from his team is a tactical decision, while others at the club have suggested it is because he has not signed a new deal.

With the situation looking increasingly unsure, reports have moved Tottenham to the head of the queue if the London club can agree a fee – believed to be around £12 million - for the transfer window.

Sniejder starred at the 2010 World Cup and was an integral part of the Inter side that swept to an unprecedented treble under Jose Mourinho that season, while his friend and countryman Rafael van der Vaart revealed in the summer that he would be happy to move to the Premier League.

"Of course he would like to play in England, it's the biggest league in the world," Van der Vaart said of Sneijder in the summer. "He is a good friend of mine and we have contact almost every day. He knows what to expect in the Premier League."

Andre Villas-Boas has been tracking Portuguese compatriot Joao Moutinho to fill the attacking hole at Spurs, but the Porto midfielder’s high price has prevented an agreement and saw a move collapse at the end of the summer window.
