Tottenham are deciding which striker to make a move for this summer as they look to add the firepower that will launch them into the Champions League next season – with Loic Remy and Leandro Damiao said to be targets.
Spurs are also still interested in landing Emmanuel Adebayor after he revealed yesterday that he was still holding talks with club chairman Daniel Levy over making a permanent switch to White Hart Lane.
Tottenham were cruelly denied their place in European club football’s elite competition after Chelsea took their spot by virtue of beating Bayern Munich in the final on Saturday, meaning the north London club will now feature in the Europa League.
Despite missing out on the lucrative competition Spurs appear to be busying themselves ahead of what is shaping up to be a crucial summer, with the bggest decision facing the club likely to be who they bring in to lead the line next term.
Damiao was reportedly the subject of a bid from Spurs in January, and now the north London club are reportedly ready to go back in for the Brazilian hotshot having sent chief scout Ian Broomfield to watch him in action, according to the Daily Mail.
They could be buoyed in their pursuit of the Internacional forward after he reveled he was open to a move away from South America.
“I can't say much, it depends on Internacional too,” Damiao was quoted as saying. “Of course my wish is to stay, but there comes a time when you need to go, but I don't know whether it is that time. If an offer arrives, then we will decide."
Spurs meanwhile remain in the hunt for Remy, although the £22 million fee placed on his head by Marseille’s is proving to be prohibitive.
The Mirror reports that Spurs remain confident of landing the French international however despite being unable to offer Champions League football.
Should Spurs be successful in their attempts to land either Remy or Damiao it is unknown what effect that will have on Emmanuel Adebayor's future with the club.
