Spurs close on Milan ace

Tottenham are closing on the loan signing of Inter Milan winger Ricardo Quaresma after the player was left out of Jose Mourinho's 23-man Champions League squad. The Portuguese international has struggled to make an impact at the San Siro since his summer move from Porto and now he is on the verge of leaving the club.

It is understood that any deal to take Quaresma to White Hart Lane may involve Jermain Jenas going in the other direction after Mourinho admitted he is interested in the player. Quaresma, 25, is widely regarded as one of the most inconsistent players in European football, however that hasn't stopped Harry Redknapp making a move for the player.

If Redknapp could manage to get the best out of Quaresma I think this would be an incredible move for Spurs. On his day, I feel there is not many better wingers in Europe and maybe a fresh start in North London will bring the best out of him. Losing Jenas wouldn't be too bad considering the club already have several central midfield players on the books.
