Inter Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari is yet again being linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window.

The 25-year-old sealed a £12.7 million switch from Portsmouth to the San Siro in summer 2008, and made 27 Serie A appearances under Jose Mourinho last season to help the Nerazzuri seal the Serie A title.

However, the Ghanaian’s regular place in the side has since been put at risk following the arrivals of Thiago Motta and Wesley Sneijder from Genoa and Real Madrid respectively.
The midfielder has reportedly been struggling for fitness in recent weeks having fasted during the Islamic month of Ramadan, with Mourinho causing a media stir after suggesting that Muntari should not be participating as it could have an adverse effect on his performances.

The former Udinese battler was booed off the San Siro surface as he was substituted against his old club at the weekend, leading to more speculation questioning his future in Italy.
And according to, Spurs’ supremo Harry Redknapp will attempt to bring Muntari back to England in January, joining Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch and Niko Kranjcar in following the former Pompey boss to White Hart Lane.

Given the obvious link between Sulley Muntari and Harry Redknapp it is easy to forget that in pure playing terms, as opposed to the Portsmouth link between the two, the Ghanaian would also be the perfect fit for a Tottenham side looking to beef up its midfield with the Inter Milan stars creative strengths.

The former Pompey midfielder is a top notch customer who also adds bite in the centre of the park as well as the ability to quickly link with an attack. He is a wonderfully composed player who always has time on the ball and rarely wastes possession whilst always being on hand to tackle back.

The treatment he received on the weekend may be an another nail in his Serie A coffin and he may well feel that a move to the much improved north London outfit would be a wise one and one that Tottenham fans would surely be very pleased about.
