Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has made no secret of his admiration for the Internacional frontman and has long been linked with a move for his signature.

The 23-year-old is contracted at the Brazilian club until 2015 but his agent, Vinicius Prates, is not ruling out him making a European switch.

However, Prates is unsure whether clubs will follow up their interest this month due to the nature of the market.

He told Zero Hora: "European clubs are paying attention.

"I think a big European club will come. But, on the other hand, in January - their winter, our summer - the clubs don't invest much. The big signings are made in the mid-year window, in August."

Asked about Tottenham's reported interest, Prates added: "While Leandro Damiao stays at Internacional, Tottenham will always be interested.

"Andre Villas-Boas has liked him since he was Chelsea's manager."

Prates says Damiao is happy at Internacional and intends to stay until the World Cup in 2014, but admits a move is a possibility.

Asked if the striker will leave, he said: "I can't say, the market changes a lot. But the project is to stay until the World Cup.

"Leandro Damiao is doing well at Internacional, he is happy there."
