The rumours have been rife for years now but it finally looks like Tottenham will sign Leandro Damiao in the coming weeks.
Having been linked with the Internacional striker for two years, reports in recent days suggest a Spurs deal is closer with Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas keen to tie up a striker before the Premier League season kicks off.
Reports in the Sunday Mirror and Daily Mail over recent days were supplemented this evening by respected journalist Duncan Castles and Goncalo Lopes, a Portuguese reporter known to be close to AVB, claiming Tottenham’s deal for Damiao is almost done.
A fee of between 20 and 25 million euros has been mooted with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy pushed into the move with Jermain Defoe the only first choice striker in the current Spurs squad.
Damiao has put himself in the shop window over the past couple of weeks and his two-goal haul against South Korea on Tuesday night means he is the top goal scorer at the Olympics with six.
The Internacional hitman was thought to be keen on a move to AC Milan but will instead join up with former team mate Sandro at White Hart Lane.
