Brazilian ace Leandro Damiao has hinted that it could be the right time for him to leave South America.
The 22-year-old signed a new long-term deal last year, and suggested he would stay in Brazil until 2014.
However, he has now suggested that he could now be ready to move on.
"I can't say much, it depends on Internacional too," he told a press conference.
"Of course my wish is to stay, but there comes a time when you need to go, but I don't know whether it is that time.
"If an offer arrives, then we will decide."
Internacional boss Dorival Junior admitted they have to be braced for an offer.
"We have to get ready," he said.
"There is nothing concrete yet but it is natural that several players draw attention.
"We will try to anticipate any loss by signing another player to minimise any damage [to the team]."
Harry Redknapp is moving in on Brazilian superstar Leandro Damiao - despite their Champions League pain.
Redknapp sent top spy Ian Broomfield to watch the £15 million-rated hit man in action for his club Internacional in South America.
The long-distance trek is for one final report on Damiao deciding whether to blow the budget on the tall, prolific front runner rather than Emmanuel Adebayor or Frenchman Loic Remy.
Supremo Daniel Levy is ready for a plunge after Spurs finished fourth but cruelly missed out on the lucrative Champions League because of Chelsea’s success.
Tottenham have tried for Damiao before and there will be fierce rivalry, but the chief scout’s mission points to an imminent offer and a major attempt at one of the coups of the summer.
TOTTENHAM are worried about signing Loic Remy because of a heart problem.
Remy has a heart defect which almost led to his transfer from Nice to Marseille falling through two years ago.
Spurs will ensure Remy has a stringent medical before any deal after witnessing Fabrice Muamba’s collapse at White Hart Lane.
A source told SunSport: “Spurs really want the player but do not want to take any chances.”
GARETH BALE has told Tottenham he will NOT be pushing for a move away from White Hart Lane.
Tottenham are aware of the huge interest in the Wales international from all of Europe’s top clubs including Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United.
But a Spurs insider said: “Gareth wants to stay for next season.
“To say he is happy at the club right now is a bit of an understatement.”
Bale sees no point in leaving unless Tottenham want to cash-in on the £40million-rated speedster.
He thinks he can maintain his path to being recognised as one of the world’s elite players with his current club.
And Bale has little desire to move abroad at the moment, preferring to drive back home to his parents’ house in Wales when he has time off.
Tom Huddlestone is on course to be fit for the start of next season after completing his first full session back in training on Tuesday.
Huddlestone, 25, made only four appearances for the north London club last season after suffering ankle ligament damage.
The England midfielder was forced to undergo surgery back in February and could only watch from the sidelines as Tottenham eventually missed out on securing a Champions League place for next season.
But Huddlestone has finally managed to put his injury torment behind him and came through a full session at the club's training ground.
Huddlestone was joined on the training pitch by Jermaine Jenas and Michael Dawson who are also recovering from long-term injuries and hope to be fit by the start of next season.
Tottenham are chasing £6.5m-rated Colombian playmaker Dorlan Pabon.
The 24-year-old caught the eye with eight goals in 10 games from midfield for Atletico Nacional last season and has been linked with a summer move to Europe.
Roma, Marseille and Malaga are keeping tabs on him and sources in Colombia have revealed that Tottenham have joined the race.
Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa are all lining up a bid for Espanyol playmaker Javi Marquez according to Cadena Ser.
25-years-old, Marquez came through the youth ranks for the Barcelona-based club, first playing for Espanyol B and then moving into the full side in 2009.
5ft 7in tall, Marquez is a left footer who has been linked to Tottenham back in 2010, but Newcastle’s interest is fairly new.
In the three years since he has played over 50 games in La Liga for Espanyol and is most at home in the middle of the park, where he has a large influences on matches and often pulls the strings.
Like many Spanish players, Marquez is renowned for his technique and also has a great shot from distance even though he has only netted a couple of times in La Liga.
Spurs, Newcastle and Villa are all closely monitoring Marquez’s situation, as the Spaniard is unlikely to sign a new deal at Espanyol and may be available for a reduced fee.
Giovani dos Santos and Tottenham were finally ready to part ways but according to the Mexico international's lawyer, both sides will have to wait just a little longer.
The Mexico international was all set to join the Yellow Submarine in 2012-13, but the deal is dead due to the Spanish outfit's relegation from La Liga.
"We were very advanced in negotiations with Villarreal so that Giovani could join them next season, but with their relegation everything has been halted," said Vicente Montes to Mexican newspaper La Afición.
Addressing persistent rumours linking the player to the MLS or the Mexican Primera Division, Montes was clear: "Gio's idea is to play in Spain. He wants to play there because he's done well, he made progress and he wants to restart his career in that league."
Dos Santos found success in a loan spell with Racing during the 2010-11 season, in which he helped the Santander outfit avoid relegation with a splendid personal run of play.
Jake Livermore has paid tribute to Scott Parker's influence on both him and the team this season, insisting: "He's made me a better player."
“Obviously Scott coming here added competition," reflected Jake. "However, I think it’s made me a better player, staying here, learning from him and playing alongside him.
“He’s taught me all about the timing of closing down, the timing of pressing and when to sit off and get into a shape.
"They’re little things you pick up on, little things that perhaps you can’t put your finger on and explain, but training with him and all the other players as well, day-in day-out, is the best education possible."
Tottenham debutant Adam Smith had to wait 14 years for his big day, but his dream finally came true as he took to the field at White Hart Lane.
Injuries to both Kyle Walker and Younes Kaboul forced Harry Redknapp to survey his bench again.
And in the 76th minute the young right-back Smith, from Leytonstone in east London, crossed the white line and made his bow for the Lilywhites in the Premier League.
“I’ve been waiting a long time to get my debut, and to finally do it is great. I’m proud of myself,” he told London24. “My whole family are Spurs fans and I grew up watching people like Stephen Carr – I used to love him.
“I’ve been at the club since I was seven, so to come on is an honour. I’ve had to wait about 14 years – something ridiculous like that!”
Touchingly, Smith’s name was ringing around the Lane within two minutes of his arrival – and that was followed by a second song for him in the closing stages.
“I couldn’t believe it, I’d just come on and they were already singing my name!” he said. “That’s Tottenham fans for you, they’re brilliant.
“For them to do that was really nice of them. The end of the season couldn’t have been better from a personal point of view, so I’m buzzing.”
It’s just a shame that his family weren’t there to see it.
“I can’t believe it, they went on holiday a few days before, so they must be gutted,” he said. “That’s the only down side, that they weren’t there.
“I found out I was in the squad the day before the game. The list is pinned up on the wall and you just look for your name, and mine was there, but they were already on holiday so I couldn’t tell them.
“You always think that you might get on, and obviously the boys are tired from a long season. Younes got a little niggle so that was my opportunity.”
Having spent the vast majority of his early career in League One and League Two, Smith joined Leeds at the end of January and seemed set for a run in the Championship.
The England Under-21 international made three starts for the Whites in the second tier, but spent less than a month at Elland Road.
“That was a little bit disappointing, but I thought I was going to get a chance here at Tottenham – and I did, so it’s worked out for me,” said Smith.
“It’s been a frustrating journey, it’s been up and down. You think you’re not going to get a chance [at Spurs] and then you think you are. It’s been a long ride so it was great to get on at the weekend.
“There are a lot of good players in the Tottenham reserves and the youth team, and we do produce a lot of players. It’s just about getting a chance really, because Tottenham’s a massive club with a lot of players.
“I’ll come back for pre-season and see what the club want me to do. If they want me to go out on loan obviously I’ll do that, and if they want me to stay then I’ll be happy to stay.”
As an England Under-21 international, Smith has an outside chance of claiming a spot in the Great Britain squad for the London 2012 Olympics – but he admits he isn’t holding his breath.
“I think I’m on the 80-man short-list but it’s a big short-list so I’m not expecting anything much,” he said. “There are players on there who have been playing in the Premier League so I’m not really expecting to go to the Olympics. I’m mostly looking to get into the Under-21 squads next season.”
Tottenham may have been denied a spot in Europe's leading club competition next year - but Alan Mullery is confident his former side will not lose a host of key players this summer.
"They have got into a situation where they may lose one or two of their best players, and there are going to be lot of questions asked over the next few weeks," said ex-midfielder Mullery, who played for Spurs between 1964-72.
"The one person who has got to remain strong is the chairman and my belief is that Daniel Levy will.
"I think big clubs will come in and if huge sums of money are submitted, like if someone bids £40million for Gareth Bale, there is always a temptation to sell.
"But those players are under long-term contracts and there is no reason why they should go.
"I still think Bale's education should be at Tottenham; he was magnificent in Europe the season before last but has still got a bit of learning to do."
Louis Saha and Steven Pienaar were caught up in a Twitter storm on Sunday after congratulating Chelsea on their dramatic Champions League win.
'Well done Chelsea,' Pienaar, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Everton, tweeted.
Saha posted: 'Bravo Drogba. Bravo Chelsea. Bravo Champion League. Bravo Football. Just magic stuff.
'No CL for Tottenham but FairPlay to Chelsea. Great victory great final for them.
The Frenchman added: 'If we had lost with Spurs the final of CL against Chelsea and Drogba had played like yesterday i would have congrats them the same way.
'U can hate me if u want. U can hate everyone if u want. U wont make me hate football and the view of winners. #fairplay even if gutted.'
The tweets quickly drew a backlash from furious Spurs fans, who responded in their droves with anger.
'You two don’t belong at Spurs with your "well done Chelsea" tweets. You’re a disgrace to our club,' a fan tweeted.
'We pay your wages and you say well done Chelski!?!' posted one fan.
And another tweeted: 'Your entitled to your views but why express them in a public forum in front of millions of Spurs fans? Keep to yourself.'
Sunderland are lining up a bid for Tottenham midfielder Steven Pienaar.
The South African has impressed on loan back at former club Everton, who are expected to try to sign him on a permanent deal over the summer.
But Tottenham want £5million for the 29-year-old and Everton may struggle to raise the funds immediately, with Sunderland believing they can step in.
Reported Dynamo Kiev target Niko Kranjcar has suggested he could leave Tottenham this summer after admitting he would be keen on a move to Ukraine or Russia.
The midfielder has another year left to run on his contract at White Hart Lane but has found playing time limited this season, with injury cutting his campaign short.
Ukrainian club Kiev are thought to be targeting the Croatia international's signature and 27-year-old Kranjcar admits a move to Eastern Europe would be an attractive prospect.
"Yes, why not?" he told Index. "But conditions would have to be good.
"I'm a realist. In Russia or Ukraine you can play good football and earn a lot of money.
"Whether you agree with me or not, it's important how much you earn in your career."
"Times have changed, the East is becoming better and better," he added.
"It's not like 10 years ago. Clubs from Ukraine and Russia regularly play in the Champions League and Europa League."
Jake Livermore has paid tribute to the influence of Tim Sherwood after making such an impact last season.
Speaking in May's Hotspur, Jake said: "There have been some great Spurs players over the years and to play with some of them and work with people like Les Ferdinand, Tim Sherwood and Pat Jennings, another who is around the club every day, makes it a good place to be.
“I like talking with Tim, in particular, because he also played centre midfield.
"He’ll just tell you things, like little fine tweaks; we work on numerous situations day-in day-out and we go over videos of games. It’s good because it gives you confidence and you know that he’s trying to help you become a better player.
“A lot of credit goes to him this season with what he’s done for me and the persistence he’s shown as well because he’s been a great help and has invested a lot of time in me. So I’m thoroughly grateful to him, Chris Ramsey and Les."
