European governing body Uefa also accused the Italians of “insufficient organisation” and “throwing of missiles and/or fireworks”.

The case will be heard on 19 April.

Monkey chants were reported during last Thursday’s tie in Milan, which Spurs won on away goals, and an inflatable banana was also seen in the crowd.

Emmanuel Adebayor scored the crucial away goal which meant that even though the hosts won the game 4-1 to make the aggregate score 4-4 over the two legs, Spurs went through to the last eight.

Inter have already been fined £43,000 (50,000 euros) by Serie A officials this season after their fans were found guilty of racially abusing former Inter players Mario Balotelli and Sulley Muntari, who now play for AC Milan, in the Milan derby last month.

And earlier this season Lazio were fined by Uefa on two separate occasions for the behaviour of their fans, including racist chanting, during Europa League group matches against Spurs.
