Alexandre Pato comments on his future amid January transfer speculation

Alexandre Pato has been linked with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Speaking to Esparto Interativo, Alexandre Pato has spoken about his future ahead of the January transfer window, confirming he wants to return to Europe soon.

The striker said: “I do not know about a transfer. I hope [to return to Europe] soon.”

Pato is currently on loan at Sao Paulo from Corinthians, staying there until the end of this calendar year, and a move to the Premier League has been rumoured for the past few months.

TMW claim that Liverpool already have a deal in place to sign the Brazilian international, whilst Spurs have also reportedly been in contact with him about a January transfer, according to TodoMercadoWeb.

Pato has reinvigorated his career since heading back to Brazil from Europe, becoming the goalscorer many believed he was going to be with AC Milan.

He has established himself as Sao Paulo’s leading goalscorer since linking up with the side, and now Pato has admitted that heading back to Europe is in his plans.

He has not stated whether that will be during this coming transfer window, and the forward has claimed that he is still unaware of any potential deal, but it is certain that both Liverpool and Spurs will be hoping to sign him in January if the rumours are anything to go by.
