Corinthians striker Alexandre Pato’o has revealed that Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur queried about his availability this Summer.
The former-AC Milan striker chose a move back to Brazil a couple of seasons ago so that he could play regular football ahead of the World Cup in 2014 which is being hosted by his homeland and he has now revealed that Spurs wanted him this Summer as they wanted to strengthen their squad.
Despite his dip in form, Pato’o is still being monitored by Tottenham and some reports are also suggesting that Arsenal could be interested in the 23-year-old as well.
Pato told Sportv: ‘Tottenham had called Corinthians to ask for my transfer. I sat at the table with the club and my agent and I decided I wanted to stay.’
