Tottenham target Leandro Damiao eyeing European switch

The young attacker said he is keen to test himself in Europe, while conceding there was not a formal approach to join Porto in the summer
Internacional forward Leandro Damiao has revealed he is relishing the prospect of playing in Europe.

The Brazil international has caught the eye of several clubs across Europe after establishing himself as one of the most prolific strikers in his homeland, netting 30 goals in all competitions this season.

Tottenham and Porto were both credited with an interest in the 22-year-old, with Spurs having a bid rejected by Internacional.

And while Damiao says he is interested in trying his luck in Europe, he stressed he was not contacted about a potential transfer.

"No-one from Porto approached me about leaving Internacional. I did not talk to anyone about that, nor was I told anything about that possibility," he told A BOLA.

"If there is an opportunity to play in Europe, of course I would like it."
