Leandro Damiao's agent has confirmed that his player is ready to make the move to Europe this season - and said a move to Tottenham could be on the cards.

Damiao has been on Spurs' radar for some time, and the north London club failed with a late move for the Brazilian forward on the last day of the January transfer window.

Napoli and Atletico Madrid are also believed to be interested in the 23-year-old Internacional hit man.

His agent Vinicius Prates says he feels like now is the right time for Damiao to move to Europe, and admitted a move to Spurs 'couldn't be ruled out'.

'With the improvement he has been showing I think he is mature enough to leave, he is ready to play in Europe," Prates told Zero Hora.

'If it was just a matter of money, he would have left a long time ago. Leandro Damiao's dream is to play the World Cup [in Brazil next year].

"If he leaves, it will be to a big club, he is under contract until 2016 and the club gives him every condition for him to achieve that dream.

"Our idea is to always work with big clubs, all players dream of playing in the Champions League. But Tottenham are an important club in London, we can't rule them out."

Spurs looked short of strikers this season as they missed out on Champions League qualification by just a single point, and manager Andre Villas-Boas is expected to bring in at least one attacker to aid his side's top four charge next time round.

Barcelona's David Villa has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane, while Christian Benteke and Porto ace Jackson Martinez are also believed to be on the Portuguese manager's radar.
