Tottenham considering £15m move for Leandro Damião - report
Tottenham are prepared to offer £15m for Internacional striker Leandro Damião according to reports in England.
The Sunday Telegraph reports that Spurs have lined up Damião as a replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor who is set to make a u-turn and rejoin Togo for the African Cup of Nations in January.
If Adebayor were to leave, then Andre Villas Boas would be left with Jermain Defoe and Clint Dempsey as his only options up front hence a move for the Brazil striker.
Spurs have approached Internacional in the past for the striker but several offers have been turned down.
Damião's agent has been quoted this morning hinting at a possible move to Tottenham: "While Leandro Damiao stays at Internacional, Tottenham will always be interested. Andre Villas-Boas has liked him since he was Chelsea's manager."
The Internacional forward shot into the public eye with a series of outstanding performances for Brazil at London 2012 where he netted six goals in six games on their way to the final.
The striker has also scored seven times in 19 appearances in last season's Brasileirão.
