White Hart Lane boss lines up big money offers.
Tottenham target £63m Brazil strike force of Hulk and Damiao
Tottenham scouts watched Brazil strikers Leandro Damiao and Hulk in action against Great Britain on Friday night.
Damiao has been on Tottenham’s wanted list for 18 months but they were reluctant to pay the £25million asking price.
The 22-year-old has also had an approach from AC Milan.
Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas met up with Hulk at Brazil’s hotel in St Albans earlier this week but claimed he was only there for a chat with the Porto striker, who could be available for £38m.

Currently Tottenham have a paucity of striking options, namely Jermain Defoe, who is currently the North London club’s only recognised senior forward. Emmanuel Adebayor was set to secure a move to White Hart Lane but apparently wage demands are holding up the completion of such a deal which has perhaps led Andre Villas-Boas to step up efforts elsewhere.
Villas-Boas visited Brazilian striker Hulk at the national team’s Olympic training ground, based at Arsenal’s London Colney base, and this has led to speculation that the Tottenham man is keen to bring in his former FC Porto charge.
Tottenham have long been linked with interest in Leandro Damiao and now this source has coupled the two stories together amid talk of a huge offer from the North London club.
Having already brought in Gylfi Sigurdsson and Jan Vertonghen, two players who were well on the way to Tottenham prior to Villas-Boas arriving, chairman Daniel Levy may well be ready to spend the money they may well receive from the sale of Luka Modric.
Tottenham have already begun a clear-out with the likes of Vedran Corluka and Niko Kranjcar being sold and Louis Saha, Ryan Nelsen and Ledley King all being released.
