Internacional president Giovanni Luigi says that Tottenham Hotspur will have to make an "extraordinary offer" if they want to sign Brazil striker Leandro Damiao.

Internacional president Giovanni Luigi has played down Tottenham Hotspur's chances of landing striker Leandro Damiao.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen to further strengthen his attacking options after the permanent signing of Emmanuel Adebayor to provide competition to Jermain Defoe.

The North Londoners had reportedly made a renewed bid for the 23-year-old Brazilian, but Luigi insists that it will take an "extraordinary offer" to prise Damiao away from the club.

"There isn't any Tottenham representative here, and nothing is scheduled," Luigi told Globo Esporte.

"The ones that have been coming here are agents. Leandro Damiao was top scorer in the Olympics. I have nothing scheduled with Tottenham.

"Internacional want to keep Leandro Damiao. He'll leave only if there is an extraordinary offer."

Luigi has previously stated that Damiao would cost any potential suitors £47m.
