Tottenham launch last ditch £20m bid for Leandro Damião - report
Tottenham have launched a last ditch attempt to sign Internacional striker Leandro Damião with a £20m bid being prepared according to reports in England.
The Daily Star claims that Andre Villas-Boas is desperate to add a striker to his ranks and wants to bring Damião to the club to fill in for Emmanuel Adebayor.
Spurs have approached Internacional in the past for the striker but several offers have been turned down.
Damião's agent has been quoted this month 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.
