Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is interested in Brazil pair Leandro Damiao and Willian.
Internacional striker Damiao, 23, impressed at the Olympics where he was the tournament's top scorer, while 24-year-old winger Willian has been one of the stars of Shakhtar Donetsk's Champions League campaign.
"We got in touch with Willian [in the summer] and he is one of the players that interests us," Villas-Boas said in the Daily Mirror "I like his style, but we could not reach the value Shakhtar were asking. It does not mean we won't try again. Shakhtar are a difficult club to negotiate with as they do not need the money and can keep their players."
