Spurs look set to lose one Brazilian from their squad in January but the question is, how many if any will be coming the other way.
Harry Redknapp had already stated that Heurelho Gomes would be looking for a new club ahead of the new season in Brazil – comments that he has underlined today.
“I would think he won’t be happy,” said Redknapp. “He wants to play at the World Cup with Brazil, so it’s going to be a problem. We’ll wait until the next window and see where that takes us.”
In the meantime, the Leandro Damiao rumours persist as do the stories linking Spurs with Sao Paulo midfielder Lucas.
Lucas Rodrigues Moura da Silva is a 19 year old attacking midfielder who, like Damiao has burst onto the scene in the last year by cementing his place in Sao Paulo’s first team and winning seven international caps into the bargain. It’s believed that Spurs, Liverpool and Roma will all be chasing his signature this winter.
Lucas, like Damiao, looks to be an amazing prospect but will Spurs really be looking to invest fees of around £20m when the window opens again in January?
