Spurs failed in a deadline-day move for their long-term target and, while the 23-year-old is flattered by their interest, he hopes to stay in Brazil for the foreseeable future
The striker, who has been capped 14 times by Brazil, is a long-term target for the Premier League outfit, with failed attempts to capture his signature dating back to 2011.
However, the 23-year-old is adamant that his aim is to remain at Internacional "for a long time".

"I certainly thank Tottenham [for their interest], they are a big club in Europe, but my focus is on Inter.
"I hope to help Inter for a long time, I have a long contract and I am very happy and focused."
Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas admitted shortly after the January transfer deadline that a summer move for Damiao was improbable, with the north London club’s interest in the striker "probably finished".
"Could it [a deal for Damiao] happen in the summer? No, I don't think so, it's probably finished now," the Portuguese told reporters.
"The player has been linked recently with Spurs, we've made it public before that he's a player that we chased, but we couldn't agree on the full conditions so we've moved on."
