Tottenham are 'locked in talks' with Internacional in their pursuit of Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao, according to talkSPORT.
The 21-year-old was in impressive form for Inter this season, scoring 22 times in just 24 appearances. His performances caught the attention of Brazil coach Mano Menezes, who awarded Damiao his first international cap against Scotland in March.
Harry Redknapp was reportedly at the Emirates Stadium to cast his eye over the young hotshot, with the Spurs manager said to have been suitably impressed by Damiao's exploits.
There has been increasing speculation over the past few months that Spurs were ready to formalise their interest in Damiao, with some reports suggesting the north London club had already made a bid for the young forward.
The acquisition of another goalscorer is allegedly a top-priority for Spurs in the summer, although Redknapp is understood to have been told he must trim his squad before signings can be made.
Roman Pavlyuchenko and Jermain Defoe have been tipped to leave White Hart Lane in the summer, while Pablo Osvaldo and Didier Drogba have been linked with summer moves to Tottenham.
Meanwhile, Redknapp is also said to be keen to add a defender with top-flight experience to his ranks during the transfer window, and Spurs will reportedly battle with Arsenal for Blackburn's Chris Samba.
