Leandro Damião da Silva dos Santos

Recommended Posts

Leandro Damião is a quality young striker who's impressing with Internacional in Brazil. He came to my attention a few days ago when I watched a clip of him destroying The Strongest in a Copa Libertadores tie with a hat trick. He's mainly been linked with Spurs, but I think a player like him- cheap, young, hungry, goalscoring- is exactly what we need.

He's also averaged a goal every 87 minutes in continental competition so far this season, and is coming off a 40 goal season last year, so its safe to say he knows how to find the goal. There may be work permit issues with him though, he's only played for Brazil 5 times.

Transfermarkt reckon he's worth 12.5 million, which is a bargain when you consider Lukaku cost 5.5 million more and hasn't done anything of note yet.


From that clip its evident that he's an excellent mover off the ball and a decent finisher to boot; we probably need a Brazilian poster to elaborate on his strengths because I can't seem to find many videos of him. From memory we made a bid for him last summer but it was rejected.
