Spurs are reported to have been tracking the Brazil international for some time, with speculation regarding an official approach having intensified since the transfer window re-opened.

Andre Villas-Boas is in the market for attacking talent, with the news that Emmanuel Adebayor is to join up with Togo for the Africa Cup of Nations set to leave Spurs with just one senior frontman in Jermain Defoe.

Damiao would represent something of a gamble, with the 23-year-old untested in Europe and set to demand a sizeable fee.

He is also in no rush to leave his homeland, despite claims by Internacional president Giovanni Luigi on Wednesday that a bid has been tabled by an English club.

Damiao claims to be unaware of such an approach and maintains that his focus is locked on the forthcoming campaign with Internacional.

He told Zero Hora: "My agent told me that there is no offer, everyone around me knows that I want to stay.

"But I can't say that I'll stay forever, maybe there will be an offer in the long term and (my future) depends on the president too".

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
