Skysports.com understands Roma have made Tottenham midfielder Sandro one of their top transfer targets.
Sandro has enjoyed a successful first season at White Hart Lane since his arrival from Internacional.
The Brazil international has caught the eye of a number of top clubs after impressing this term, especially in the UEFA Champions League win over AC Milan in their last-16 tie.
Sandro's agent recently played down talk linking the defensive midfielder with a move away from Tottenham, but admitted the South American would be keen on playing in Serie A.
Roma have been keeping tabs on Sandro's progress and they are now weighing up a move for the player.
The Italian side's new American's owners are determined to build a side capable of challenging for honours at home and abroad and are ready to back the Giallrossi in this summer's transfer market.
Spurs are determined to keep hold of Sandro despite Harry Redknapp admitting it could be difficult to keep their best players after they missed out on the Champions League for next season.
