Sources in South America have suggested that the 30-year-old is growing increasingly disillusioned at his current club Fluminense in his homeland.

The Brazilian side are stuttering over offering the player a new contract, with his age and contract length believed to be the issue.

Despite only netting 16 times for the Selecao, his great positioning and reading of the game have kept him as a consistent feature in Luiz Felipe Scolari’s squads and will most likely lead the line for the country at this summer’s World Cup.

Both Spurs and City were credited with a heavy interest in the player’s services last year, and upon hearing the news of his growing unhappiness may decide to make a move for him again this time around.

Spurs are looking for another proved striker to bridge the gap between Emmanuel Adebayor and the inexperienced Harry Kane after seeing £26m flop Roberto Soldado fail to hit the ground running this season.

The striker said: “I will only leave the club if there is a really great offer.”
