The North London side hope to sign the 23 year old Brazilian today to help boost the club’s strikeforce which has been hampered by the fact that Jermain Defoe is having to play through the pain barrier whilst not 100% fit, especially with Emmanuel Adebayor away on Africa Cup of Nations duty with Togo.
Tottenham are believed to have made an £18m bid for Damiao following an unsuccessful attempt to sign Lyon forward Lisandro Lopez.
The Internacional striker has been strongly linked with a move to Totteham for the best part of a year and given that Tottenham have previously signed players from the Porto Alegre club in the past, having brought in midfield battle Sandro from the same source, there is perhaps a chance a deal could be struck in the next 36 hours.
Damiao has been a consistent finisher in Brazil, scoring 74 goals in 129 appearances for Internacional. The powerful marksman finished as the top scorer during the 2012 Olympic Football tournament.
