It’s over a year now since Spurs were first linked with Internacional striker and Brazilian international Leandro Damiao after it was revealed that the club had made an official bid last summer.
Since then, the 23 year old’s stock has risen and his asking price has undoubtedly increased too. If he hadn’t passed under AVB’s radar before, his four goals in Brazil’s London 2012 will have underlined just how much talent and potential he possesses.
Now, the media are reporting that Spurs are about to make their move although the suggested offers which start at around £15million may be a little optimistic. Naturally, there are links with other clubs too but his present employers claim that no bids have been received recently.
That might put Spurs in pole position and it’s thought that Inter may be open to negotiations now. As always, we’ll find out shortly as to whether there is any truth in these latest reports.
