Brazilian club Corinthians have admitted they are open to the possibility of selling forward Pato this January.
Tottenham have been one of the sides linked with the striker, along with interest from their local rivals Arsenal.
“Considering his value, I think it's hard that he moves to another Brazilian club. If those two clubs [Arsenal and Tottenham] are interested in Pato, we don't rule out selling him in the winter transfer market,” Corinthians director Roberto de Andrade told Radio Bandeirantes.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has defended his decision to let goalkeeper Hugo Lloris play on against Everton.
The goalkeeper took a bad blow to the head after a challenge from striker Romelu Lukaku, which appeared to leave him rattled and confused.
“He doesn’t remember it so he lost consciousness. He seemed assertive, determined to continue and showed great character. The call always belongs to me. Brad Friedel was ready to come on but there were enough signs for Hugo to continue,” said AVB.
