If Spurs are going to move for a striker in this transfer window then it’s looking increasingly unlikely that Leandro Damiao is the name in the frame. It was reported earlier in the week that the club were preparing a £15m bid for the player but Andre Villas-Boas believes a deal is unlikely.
“Leandro is a player we’ve always appreciated, that this club appreciated before I arrived, but it’s extremely difficult that he’s going to join Tottenham,” AVB said.
“He’s a player that is highly rated in the market, and it’s unlikely that he will play for Tottenham.”
If Damiao is not to be then what about Alvaro Negredo? The Spanish international is tipped for a January move and if reports are to be believed, Sevilla President Jose María del Nido has landed in London in order to tout his client around the capital.
At 27, Negredo is a goal every other game man and with his club heavily in debt, could Tottenham be the team to take advantage?
