According to the Sunday Mirror, Tottenham are losing patience with Emmanuel Adebayor and are now likely to turn their attention towards Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao.
Spurs had agreed a fee with fellow English Premier League side Manchester City for the forward but Adebayor is set to want more money than what is being offered.
The Togo international spent last season on loan at the London club, scoring 18 goals and leading the line fantastically for the majority of the campaign.
It seemed as though these performances would secure a more to Spurs, however his finical demands are far too high.
This may now lead new manager Andre Villas Boas to make a move for Damiao, who is currently at Brazilian side Internacional.
The 23-year-old has scored 56 goals in just 93 appearances in the league, performances that have seen him noticed by Villas Boas.
He has also been one of the star men in Brazils Olympic Games tournament so far, scoring three goals and plays for them in the semi-finals during the week.
It is unlikely that Damiao will decide his future until after London 2012. After that though, the move may become more and more likely as this transfer window enters the business end.
