Liverpool are ready to frustrate Tottenham Hotspur by snatching long-term target Leandro Damiao, according to

Spurs, in their search for a new forward, were drawn to the Brazilian hitman, who scored 39 goals last season for his club Internacional.

After instead opting to sign Emmanuel Adebayor on loan, due to the Damiao's club refusing to sell the play, it appears Liverpool aren't prepared to give up.


A bid of £16.5 million was reportedly turned down in the final weeks of the transfer window from Tottenham, who sold on striker Peter Crouch and Robbie Keane during the summer.

Liverpool were able to draft in Craig Bellamy on deadline day, but now have their eye on Damiao.

Steve Clarke, Liverpool assistant manager, was at Craven Cottage to watch the 22-year-old score for his country against Ghana in a friendly earlier this month, and scouts from Anfield have reportedly watched the player up to six times.
