Spurs hopeful on Damiao deal.
Tottenham are still trying to finalise a deal for Internacional striker Leandro Damiao, according to various media outlets.
fanatix tickets – Barclays Premier League tickets are still available for this weekend’s games.
West Brom vs Spurs tickets are on sale from £15 for this Sunday’s match at the Hawthorns.
Both the BBC and Sky Sports report that Spurs are hopeful of securing the signature of the 23-year-old Brazil international before tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline.
Spurs signed a strategic partnership with the Inter in 2010 and have been chasing Damiao for over two seasons.
But the Porto Alegre club have been consistently unwilling to do business over the powerful striker, who finished top scorer as this summer’s London Olympic, as Brazil claimed the Silver.
Spurs are in desperate need of striking reinforcements, with Jermain Defoe currently carrying a knock and Emmanuel Adebayor set for a prolonged stay at the African Cup of Nations with quarter-finalists Togo.
Damiao, who is expected to partner Neymar up-front for the Selecao at the 2014 World Cup, has 14 caps for his country.
