Internacional willing to sell Liverpool & Spurs target

Published Add your comment

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have received a timely boost in their alleged pursuit of Leandro Damiao, after Internacional president Giovanni Luigi revealed the club is open to offers for the striker, reports the Daily Star.

The Brazil international has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time, after seemingly turning down an opportunity to join high-flying Southampton during the summer.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has also been credited with an interest in bringing the 24-year-old to White Hart Lane, as he looks to add another goalscoring threat to his north London ranks in January.

However, Tottenham will face competition for Damiao's signature from Liverpool, as Brendan Rodgers considers attacking reinforcements for his Anfield squad when the transfer window reopens.

Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have been in scintillating form for the Reds this season, but Iago Aspas's failure to make a significant impact since arriving on Merseyside during the summer, could see the Northern Irishman head back into the transfer market at the turn of the year.

"There are no negotiations underway as the league just ended on Sunday," explained Luigi in an interview with RBS TV.

"The possibility of Leandro Damiao leaving is still open, but nobody has contacted me."

Damiao joined Internacional for a paltry £150,000 in 2010, and is now valued at £25million after netting 46 goals in all competitions over the past three years.
