Tottenham dealt cruel blow in transfer pursuit

damiao.jpgThere is massive disappointment for Andre Villas Boas and Tottenham fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by talkSPORT that their long-term target Leandro Damiao is set for a move to Serie A outfit Napoli.

The player has been admired by Andre Villas-Boas and Spurs for a long time now and the club are set to miss out on the Brazilian international despite nearly agreeing terms and a fee for the player during the last transfer window.

Both Villas-Boas and Spurs have been individually tracking the player with former boss Harry Redknapp also a keen admirer of the talented Internacional man and now Napoli are set to pounce and land him.

A fee and terms have been agreed for the striker and Italian publication II Mattino noted that there has been negotiations over the last week between Internacional and Napoli with a £16 million fee agreed. Spurs may now have to turn their attention to another forward as the summer approaches and Gonzalo Higuain could well be top of that list potentially in a cash plus player swap for Real Madrid target Gareth Bale.

Is this the end of the road when it comes to Tottenham and Damiao? Rate this rumour below.
