Van Der Vaart in Milan link

After links with Napoli's Marek Hamsik and Javier Pastore of Palermo this week, Milan are now being paired with a move for Rafael Van Der Vaart.

The Corriere dello Sport claims that the Tottenham player is one of the club's top priorities on the transfer market.

Milan are looking to build a side that is competitive enough to fight for the Champions League and see Van Der Vaart as a useful addition.

The Rossoneri are short of attacking midfielders in their squad and the 28-year-old could offer boss Massimiliano Allegri some tactical flexibility.

The report goes on to claim that Milan have asked football agent Mino Raiola to help the switch take place.

The Dutch international signed a four-year deal with Spurs in 2010 after two difficult seasons in Spain with Real Madrid.

The player, valued at €15m-€20m, started his carer with Ajax and spent three years in Germany at Hamburg.
