Alexandre-Pato-BrazilAlexandre Pato could be set for a stunning move to the Premier League, according to reports.

The Brazil striker – still just 25 – is currently plying his trade in his homeland at Sao Paulo.

And according to Mail Online Pato has been offered to “mid-level” Premier League clubs around London – with West Ham and Crystal Palace thought to be in the driving seat.

Pato signed for AC Milan in 2007, aged 17. He scored 51 leagues goals in 117 Serie A games, but struggled with injuries.

He has 27 Brazil caps but the last came in 2013 when he scored in a friendly against Australia.

West Ham and Palace are both eyeing up strikers, with Slaven Bilic resigned to being without Andy Carroll for the start of the season.

Palace have been monitoring Loic Remy’s situation at Chelsea following the arrival of Radamel Falcao at Stamford Bridge.

However both clubs would be taking something of a gamble on a player who left European football for Corinthians in 2013 after failing to recover from his injury demons.
