Wesley Sneijder is expected to be playing in the Premier League in 2012.

While a move away from Inter Milan this week is unlikely, his days with the Nerazzurri are numbered after coach Claudio Ranieri admitted he couldn't fit the Dutchman into his system.

"He can play in a 4-4-1-1 or a diamond midfield, but at the moment that's not going well for us. I tried that system today, but it didn't bear fruit," confessed Ranieri, who hooked Sneijder at halftime of defeat to Lecce.

The Premier League now beckons for Sneijder, where he is admired by Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.
