Eder could be the striker Tottenham have been looking for. Emmanuel Adebayor seems stuck in a rut, Jermain Defoe can't lead the line on his own, and Gareth Bale can't carry the load indefinitely. At least we think he can't.
The Leandro Damiao on-again, off-again love affair was rekindled again in January, but someone needs to have a quiet word with Tottenham, reassure them he's not worth it, wipe the tear from their eye, and tell them there's plenty more fish in the sea.
They've come up empty-handed in their dogged pursuit so far, and with a price quoted at around £20m, frankly he's probably not worth it.
So what about Eder? He's a decent looking chap, strong in the air, good in front of goal, maybe he can be the striker they're looking for?
Andre Villas-Boas managed him at Academica, and he's now banging in the goals for Braga (13 in 17 starts). He's even got Champions League experience, perfect for those tricky trips in next year's premier European competition. Because, yes, Tottenham should qualify.
