Luigi expecting offers for Tottenham striker target

Internacional president Giovanni Luigi insists he is not in talks with any club about Tottenham Hotspur target Leandro Damiao, reports Sky Sports.

The 23-year-old striker has been heavily linked with a switch to Europe over the past 18 months, and came close to moving to north London in the January transfer window.

In addition to Spurs, Napoli and Marseille have both been credited with an interest in signing Damiao, so Andre Villas-Boas will face competition for the Brazil international's signature, if he still holds hope of luring the player to White Hart Lane this summer.

Luigi was pictured in England at the weekend after flying to London to watch the Champions League final, which was the sole reason for the Internacional chief's visit, and not to discuss Damiao with Tottenham.

"No club contacted me. I was there [in Europe] alone," he told Radio Gaucha. "I went to see the [Wembley] stadium well and to watch the game. But I didn't talk with anybody regarding the player.

"It's possible that an offer happens, but I don't know if it will be from Tottenham. The player has been called up again, will play the Confederations Cup and is wanted [by many clubs]."

Villas-Boas will surely be looking to add to his contingent of Tottenham strikers this summer, with Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor currently the only recognised first-team options in that area.
