Tottenham launched deadline day bid for Pato

Published 1 Comments

Tottenham launched an audacious bid for former AC Milan playmaker Pato on deadline day, according to South American expert Tim Vickery.

Spurs signed no less than seven players in the transfer window, splashing more than £100 million to counter the loss of star player Gareth Bale, who joined Real Madrid in a record £86 million move.

The north London club have traditionally done plenty of business on deadline day but were quiet this time round.

However Tim Vickery says that wasn't necessarily the case, and claims the north London club launched an offer for Pato, now with Brazilian outfit Corinthians.

Speaking to TalkSport, Vickery says Tottenham made a move for the Brazilian but failed to meet the asking price set by Corinthians, who Spurs snapped up Paulinho from earlier this summer for £17 million.

Despite their extensive business during the transfer window, Spurs could do little as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat against Arsenal on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium.
