Spurs were interested in securing his services in the summer transfer window as well but failed. Now, Metro cite reports in the Italian media claiming that Tottenham are close to finally signing the former AC Milan forward.
As per the provided Metro link, the North Londoners are ready to pay a sum of 8.5 million pounds to lure the Samba star.
The 26-year-old striker is currently playing on loan for Sao Paulo and will return to his parent club Corinthians in January.
Pato has proved his quality in Europe with the might Rossoneri but injuries have hampered his progress over the years. The Brazilian has netted 106 club goals (Transfermarkt) in his career and has got what it takes to be a hit with Spurs if he stays fit.
