The strongest indication yet Leandro Damiao is England-bound


Internacional president Giovanni Luigi claims Tottenham have re-opened transfer talks regarding Leandro Damiao.

We have been constantly linked with a move for the Brazilian international and the form of Emmanuel Adebayor has meant that we are even more desperate to land a prolific striker.

Napoli had also been heavily linked with a move for the player, but Luigi has ruled out any chance of Damiao moving to the Serie A outfit. Spurs fans will be reading this thinking “not another Leandro story”, and we agree – however the below quotes are the strongest indication yet that a move could be on the cards.

Giovanni Luigi told Tutto Mercato: “If a club want a player, they must talk to the president of the club at which that particular player plays, and not just deal with the agent – that is not correct behaviour.

“Recently we talked with Tottenham, Leandro is very likely to play games in England in the coming year. On the other hand, we can exclude Napoli.”


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Levy should have done everything he could to sign him in January… rather than Jeopardising our season for an extra couple of million.

  2. Yeah, apparently we are in talks with Ben Arfa too. In other news, Spurs fans can still renew their season tickets!!

  3. Levy is a clever chappy. If Leandro finally arrives in the year before the world cup in Brazil I wouldn't be surprised. The same thing occurred before the world cup in South Africa when we signed Pinaar and Bongani; and these moves might be interpreted as a clever/cynical (delete as appropriate) attempt by Levy to break into these two emerging economies and markets: Leandro and Sandro are likely to be stars of the 2014 Brazilian world cup team.

  4. Come on man, Pienaar and Khumalo both signed the year after the last World Cup. Try to know a little about something you’re going to post.

  5. I could happen now as there is a stable Brazilian coach now. Therefore they won't have to worry about club form that much. But this saga has been going on too long. Makes me doubt he even wants to go to Spurs. His goal scoring ratio isn't even that good in the Brazilian league. However, he does have the attributes like physicality to survive in England. Plus Spurs would need to offload Ade if this move is to happen.

  6. My problem is all this talk about Damaio , are we not better going after the tried and tested Benteke’s and Remy’s of this world.What if he fails to adapt to English Soccer ?Although nothing can be worse than Ade, who it has been pointed out is playing more and more like a Gooner’s undercover agent.
