Leandro Damiao: Expected to be on the move once the transfer window re-opens

Spurs have been on the trail of the Internacional striker for some time, with a January swoop for his services collapsing on deadline day.

Andre Villas-Boas has continued to monitor the 23-year-old since then, with a second approach this summer believed to be in the pipeline.

Spurs are, however, not the only side in the running for Damiao's signature, with Italian outfit Napoli having joined them at the head of the transfer queue.

Damiao's representative is refusing to close the door on any possible deal as the window of opportunity prepares to swing open once more, and he insists Tottenham remain an attractive option for his client.

Vinicius Prates said: "Of course all players dream of playing in the Premier League.

"Tottenham are an important club in London, we can't rule them out."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
