I posted this in the transfer thread a couple days ago and was really surprised when no one, especially fellow Spurs supporters, decided to comment on it. Would be a pretty big move imo.
Probably because there's been so many rumors about where Sneijder would end up and English press seems to randomly link Tottenham to half the Serie A players potentially on the move every window for some reason.
However, this transfer does seem a lot more likely than previous rumors. Sneijder is almost certain to move after losing his first team spot to Fredy Guarin and then being left out of the squad altogether for the past couple of months.
I don't follow EPL closely enough to really comment on Spurs' roster but AVB was at Inter when Sneijder was arguably as effective as any player in the world.
I guess that could result in AVB being confident that he can get him back on track. Or, I suppose the risk is that AVB doesn't realize how Sneijder's game has slipped and his problem at Inter was as more due to his unwilling attitude to adapt to not having everything rotate around him.
