Internacional president Giovanni Luigi has admitted there has been interest from the Premier League for their star striker Leandro Damiao, with Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool believed to be leading the race for his signature.

According to talkSPORT, the Italian told Calciomercato that a host of top European clubs want to sign the player, and will step up their bids this summer.

Damiao recently claimed that Spurs boss Harry Redknapp had approached his representatives over a possible £20million move to White Hart Lane, but the 22-year-old is also believed to be on Arsenal and Liverpool's radar.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is known to be in the market for attacking reinforcements this summer, as he looks to strengthen his Emirates Stadium squad.

Meanwhile, another busy summer is anticipated at Anfield, as Kenny Dalglish looks to take the Reds to the next level, with further additions when the transfer window reopens in June.

However, Luigi has revealed that interest stems further afield than England, with Serie A giants Juventus thought to be the current frontrunners to sign him this summer.

"It is not only from the Juventus that we have received contact," he explained. "Other Italian, Spanish and English clubs [are interested too]. I do not know what will happen."
