Corinthians director Roberto de Andrade admits they're prepared to listen to offers for Alexandre Pato. The Daily Star says Arsenal and Tottenham are set to step up their efforts to sign Brazilian striker Pato in the new year after De Andrade revealed the club are willing to listen to offers.

"Given his value, I think it is difficult for him to move to another Brazilian club," he told Radio Bandeirantes.

"If the two clubs [Arsenal and Tottenham] are interested in Pato we do not exclude to sell him during the winter transfer market."
