Oscar made himself known as one to watch when he scored a hat-trick in the final of the Under-20 World Cup earlier this year, and has been labelled ‘the new Kaka.’
His Brazilian club have been visited by several scouts from Europe, with the 20-year-old recently having made his senior debut for the national team.
Spurs will hope that their partnership with Internacional will give them the advantage in the race to sign Oscar, having utilised the set-up in the past to sign Sandro from the same club.
He is the second Internacional player to be linked with Harry Redknapp’s side in recent months, with Spurs having a bid for Leandro Damiao rejected over the summer.
