Tottenham planning second move for Brazilian star

Tottenham could be set to make a second attempt to secure the signing of Brazil star Alexandre Pato, according to reports cited by the Daily Star.

24-year-old Pato, who joined current club Corinthians from Serie A giants AC Milan back in January, was first linked with a move to White Hart Lane during the summer when the player himself confirmed that he rejected the chance to switch to the Premier League in order to remain in South America.

The Brazilian international - who has won 27 senior international caps for Selecao - could have a chance to swiftly reconsider that initial rejection, however, with those aforementioned reports suggesting that a second deal could be completed in the future.

Pato would not be the sole samba star to ply his trade with Andre Villas-Boas side were he to make the switch to White Hart Lane, with Spurs also boasting the considerable talents of former Corinthians teammate Paulinho - a man who played a starring role for the North London outfit during their comfortable 2-0 victory over Paul Lambert's Aston Villa side last Sunday.

Whether the popular Portuguese boss is actually in need of yet another attacking option, however, remains to be seen. Following the £85 million word-record departure of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, Villas-Boas sought to sufficiently bolster his squad and lavished considerable sums on the likes of Roberto Soldado, Christian Eriksen and former Roma starlet Erik Lamela.

Those arrivals, coupled with the emergence of England international Andros Townsend, would surely mean that any further new deals will result as a consequence of Spurs moving on a number of unfancied fringe players.
