Report: Fiorentina threaten Tottenham's transfer of Sandro Ramirez

Tottenham Hotspur face a threat to sign transfer target Sandro Ramirez from Fiorentina.

Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur face a threat to their ambition to sign Sandro Ramirez from Barcelona.

Italian website Tuttomercatoweb cite Diario Gol, reporting Fiorentina are showing an interest in the promising forward.

Sandro Ramirez is one of two players, along with Munir El Haddadi, who the Serie A side would like to sign.

The Mirror report Tottenham Hotspur have made Sandro Ramirez a key target as the transfer window opens, with deals for Michy Batshuayi and Saido Berahino more difficult.

Fiorentina face Tottenham in the knockout rounds of the Europa League in February, having also eliminated Mauricio Pochettino's side from the competition at the same stage last season.

Sandro is 20-years-old, and his contract with Barcelona expires in June 2017. He is currently struggling for game time, behind Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez at the club, and has not scored in any of his 10 La Liga appearances so far this season, but has three goals in two games in the Copa del Rey.
