The Telegraph reckons the club are preparing one final late bid for their top target.

Brazilian international forward Leandro Damiao has been Andre Villas-Boas top target for some time, but so far the club have been left frustrated in their pursuit.

His club Internacional have so far been unwilling to sell, but a breakthrough arrived yesterday with the news the club had bought in another striker in the form of Luan from Palmeiras.

It now remains to be seen whether Villas-Boas and chairman Daniel Levy can force through a deal for the striker before tomorrow’s 11pm deadline.

Damiao is valued at around £15 million – a fee Tottenham have so far been unwilling to match. However, Andre Villas-Boas knows the importance of securing a forward before the window shuts, with Emmanuel Adebayor away on international duty at the African Cup of Nations, and Jermain Defoe currently struggling with a pelvic injury.

The club have so far only made one major signing this transfer window, bringing in midfielder Lewis Holtby from Schalke for a bargain £1.5m, while they have also brought in youngster Ezekiel Fryers in from Standard Liege.

Will Spurs snare Damiao in a last minute raid? Rate this rumour below.
