Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur target Leandro Damiao has said he would welcome a move to the Premier League.


Sir Alex Ferguson, Kenny Dalglish and Harry Redknapp are all thought to be interested in the prolific Sao Paulo striker.


The Daily Mail reported that there had been reports about interest from Spain, but Damiao gave those at Old Trafford, Anfield and White Hart Lane hope with his latest comments regarding a move away from the Brazilian side.


“There will come a day when I will play in Europe. It will be very important for me to learn and improve,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.


“For my style and strength, I think I could adapt to any major league in Europe. But it seems to me that strikers are most appreciated in Italy and England.”


Spurs are thought to have made two separate bids for the Brazil international last summer, but both were knocked back.


The player claimed it was not the right time for him to leave his homeland when the Tottenham bids came in last season, but it now looks as though he is ready to make a lucrative move to Europe.


The report also suggests that nouveau-riche French club Paris St Germain have been monitoring his situation, as well as Serie A side Inter Milan.


Damiao, who made his Brazil debut at Emirates Stadium against Scotland, has scored 65 goals in 104 matches for his current side Internacional.
