Daily Star.

Spurs made a deadline day move for the Brazilian forward over the summer, but the player himself elected to stay in his homeland.

But, the London club are ready to make a fresh move in January in a bid to bolster their attacking options.

Andre Villas-Boas currently has only Roberto Soldado, Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor to call upon as central strikers.

With the latter two yet to convince him of their abilities, he is keen to ease the pressure on the Spanish hit-man.

Pato is seen as the ideal man to boost the club’s pursuit of a top four finish by AVB, who is ready to continue his mammoth 2013 spend with a significant offer for the 24-year-old.

The Brazilian international only joined Corinthians from AC Milan earlier this year after failing to fulfil his promise in Italy.

Although he is a valued member of his current club’s squad, he may be sold after frustrating president Mario Gobbi by missing a penalty in a recent defeat.

Could Alexandre Pato form a deadline double act with Roberto Soldado?
