Marseille make Internacional striker Leandro Damião their top target - Report
French giants Olympique de Marseille have made Internacional striker Leandro Damião their number one transfer target this summer, according to reports in L’Equipe.
Damião, 23, has quickly become one of the most sought after forwards in the world following his superb form for the Porto Alegre club and has attracted interest from a number of top European clubs, with Tottenham Hotspur expressing an interest in signing the player during the last three transfer windows.
However, respected French sports paper L’Equipe are reporting that coach Élie Baup and sporting director Jose Anigo have identified the Brazilian as the ideal man to help the club challenge Paris St-Germain for the Ligue 1 title next year.
Damião had seemed set to join Tottenham this summer but may be swayed to join Marseille if they meet the €20 million valuation of the player and will be able to offer the striker Champions League football at the Velodrome next season.
