TOTTENHAM are interested in signing 18-year-old Brazilian wonderkid Rodrigo Varanda.
The 18-year-old Corinthians winger has been watched by impressed Spurs scouts over the last few years.
SunSport understands there have already been initial talks over an £8.5m deal to bring him to the Premier League.
He is out of contract next January, and is allowed to begin talks with over a free transfer from this August.
But the Brazilian side don’t want him to go for nothing, and want him to extend his contract to land a fee.
His team are believed to already be working on getting the correct paperwork for him to make a move to the UK.
Varanda can play anywhere across the attack, and is comfortable on both the left and the ring wing.
Meanwhile, Tottenham are in no rush to appoint a new manager and will wait until the end of the season to make a decision.
It is understood Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will see what happens for the rest of the campaign before making a decision.
