North London club keen to offload misfiring Togo front man this summer.
Tottenham Hotspur are looking to replace striker Emmanuel Adebayor with Brazil forward Leandro Damiao at the end of the season, says the Evening Standard.
The Togo international only agreed a permanent four-year contract with the North London club last summer on a reported £100,000 a week, however, the 29-year-old has enjoyed a disappointing campaign so far for the club, scoring just three goals in 22 appearances.
As a result, Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas has decided that he needs a new front man as of the next campaign, with Internacional attacker Damiao believed to be top of the Portuguese’s wish list.
Spurs have tried to bring the coveted Brazil international to White Hart Lane on three separate occasions already, most recently in the January transfer window, only for talks to break down each time.
The club also know that they face stiff competition for the 23-year-old’s signature from Serie A giants Napoli and as a result, may instead turn their attentions to Braga striker Eder, who Villas-Boas coached while manager of Academica in the 2009-10 season. The 25-year-old Portugal international has already been capped five times by his country, while also reportedly interesting Tottenham is in-form Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke.
