But Pato snubbed the chance in favour in staying at Corinthians - the club he joined in the January transfer window from AC Milan. Tottenham were reportedly one of the teams to submit a late bid for the Brazilian forward on transfer deadline day.
And while Pato refused to confirm the names of the clubs involved, he did admit several offers came in that he considered.
"I received offers, they called Corinthians, sent a fax to sign me in the window, but I sat down with the staff, talked with my agent and I told them I wanted to stay," Pato told Sportv.
"I wanted to help Corinthians fight for a place in Libertadores."
The Brazilian side are currently placed sixth in the country's highest division as they chase continental qualification.
Pato has been in good form as well, and is currently eighth in the race to be crowned the competition's top scorer.
Reports in Brazil claimed Tottenham were keen to bring him back to Europe, with Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas reportedly an admirer.
Spurs signed Roberto Soldado from Valencia in the summer window, but are potentially one short in the striker department.
Jermain Defoe has been restricted to substitute appearances, while Emmanuel Adebayor appears to be out of favour at White Hart Lane. The Togolese international is training with the club's development squad.
Harry Kane, the 20-year-old Spurs academy graduate, is the only other option for Villas-Boas.
