Spurs have emerged as leaders in the race to sign Italian international Andrea Ranocchia, nicknamed The Frog, in January.

The centre-back has been with AC Milan since the 2010/11 season but has recently fallen out of favour with manager Roberto Mancini, who stripped the 27 year old of his captaincy after a poor run of form.

Ranocchia has made over 150 appearances for the Milan side, but reports suggest that he will hand in a transfer request in January, with Everton also said to be interested in his signature.
