Scocco has been a long-term target for Sunderland, and they wanted him before his summer switch to Internacional.
The 28-year-old international is now looking to leave Brazil, and his father says he does have the two offers in the Premier League.
Hector Scocco told Radio Gaucha: "It's not that Scocco doesn't like Brazilian football, his problem is that he didn't have motivation to keep playing for Internacional, nothing else.
"The problem is with Internacional, not with the Brazilian clubs."
On the Premier League interest he confirmed: "The latest news I have is what we all know, there were offers from England, from Sunderland and Cardiff City."
