Leandro Damiao’s agent has hinted that his client could still be set to join Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The Brazil international came close to moving to Spurs in the last two transfer windows but the moves fell through due to inflated fees and wage demands.

Andre Villas-Boas is reported to still be keen on the 23-year-old Internacional striker as the Spurs boss looks to bolster his attacking options ahead of next season.

And Damiao’s agent Vinicius Prates has left the door open to a possible move to White Hart Lane by refusing to rule out north London as a possible destination.

“Of course all players dream of playing in the Premier League,” said Prates.

“Tottenham are an important club in London, we can’t rule them out.”

Damiao, whose current contract is set to expire in 2017, has scored over 80 goals in 147 games for Internacional.
