Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly considering a move for Valter Birsa as AC Milan are said to be offering him for a cut-price fee of just £4m.

The Metro claims that the 27-year-old's agent has been snooping across the continent for a suitable club and the north London club are reacting positively to his approach.

The winger made the switch to the San Siro under former manager Massimiliano Allegri last summer from Genoa in a straight swap deal involving Luca Antonini.

Birsa made just 15 appearances scoring two goals in Serie A as the Rossoneri ended a disappointing season finishing eighth in the league table.

Without European football for the upcoming campaign, the club's hierarchy are aiming to cut down on expenses by offloading fringe players.

Milan's legendary former striker and their new manager, Filippo Inzaghi, is looking to refurbish his squad. Birsa, who still has two years left in his current contract, has been told that he does not feature in the Italian's plans for the upcoming campaign and is free to leave during the summer transfer window.

The left-footed Slovenian international is known for his dribbling ability and is capable of playing on both wings and as an attacking midfielder.

Newly appointed Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino, is set to splash the cash in the market for enhancing his side's prospects of finishing among the top four in the Premier League. Birsa's acquisition will give the former Southampton boss an additional attacking option.

Meanwhile, the White Hart Lane club are also believed to be closing in on signing Esteban Cambiasso after the veteran Argentine midfielder was released by Inter Milan.

The 33-year-old, who was linked with a move to River Plate in his native place, wants to continue playing for in Europe and Pochettino wants his compatriot to be a part of his squad next season.

"My future is very far from Argentina. My career for the time bring is still in Europe. I have several proposals from big clubs but as a sign of respect for them I will not reveal the negotiations that my father and my brother are undertaking," the Express quoted Cambiasso as saying.
