Corinthians: 'We can negotiate for Alexandre Pato'

Corinthians director of football Roberto de Andrade says that the club will listen to offers for Alexandre Pato amid reported interest from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

Corinthians director of football Roberto de Andrade has said that the club is open to offers for Alexandre Pato.

The 24-year-old forward has failed to live up to expectations since joining from AC Milan for £12m in January, but is still believed to be of interest to both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

"We can negotiate about him, like any player, but in order to have a negotiation, there must be clubs interested in signing him and Pato so far has not asked to leave," the Daily Star quotes De Andrade as saying.

"When we bought Pato, it was because it was an opportunity, he is a great player. He is a kid - still very young - we don't regret it. He will make the fans very happy."

Arsenal were reported to have failed with a £6.5m bid for the Brazilian.
