Corinthians are ready to encourage offers from Europe for Alexandre Pato. Pato revealed he turned down a move to Tottenham in August, though it's emerged this week Corinthians are now under pressure to sell.

The Brazil international is struggling to win over fans this season and the board are now attempting to reignite Spurs' interest ahead of the January market.

The problem for Corinthians is that Pato's form, where he has managed just seven goals in 24 games, may not be enough for Tottenham to try again for the former AC Milan striker.
