Liverpool lodge bid for Leandro Damião - report
Liverpool have lodged an offer for Internacional hitman Leandro Damião in the last two days according to reports in Italy.
Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri revealed the news on his Twitter account, claiming that the Reds were interested in securing a big signing before the transfer window shuts on Monday.
The Brazilian has been the topic of intense speculation over his future this summer with several Premier League clubs said to be interested but Damião has always insisted that he will only move for the right offer.
"The first time I was sounded out, I was happy, but I have to overcome that now, I am focused on Internacional, it has to be a good offer for me and the club," Damião told reporters.
"A lot was said. I am calm, nothing has come and I am still focused on Internacional and in the Brazilian Cup. If a very good offer comes, then maybe it could happen."
