White Hart Lane boss linked with move for former Ajax man.
The Premier League’s leading lights – including Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea – have been alerted to the availability of some of AC Milan’s biggest names.
The Italian giants are reported to be trying to offload players, including Klass-Jan Huntelaar and Mathieu Flamini, to raise the necessary funds for a £40 million bid for Barcelona forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Huntelaar in particular has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, and Tottenham are said to be amongst the forerunners for his signature, with Harry Redknapp thought to be keen on bringing a new striker to the White Hart Lane club this summer.
The striker, who scored the winner for Holland in their final World Cup Group E match against Cameroon last week, has attracted the attention of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson in the past, but Spanish newspaper Sport suggest he may now be heading to Tottenham for around £11.5 million.

One imagine that any move from White Hart Lane boss Harry Redknapp for the former Ajax striker will be very dependent on if the north London club elects to allow both Robbie Keane and Roman Pavyluchenko to leave, after all the Tottenham would have little use for yet more firepower unless they were electing to offload some of what is already warming the bench.
Huntelaar has failed to make a mark at both AC Milan and prior to that, Real Madrid and if the Serie A side’s new boss Massimiliano Allegri opts to bring fresh talent to the San Siro then the 26 year old may have to pack his bags and start all over again.
