Arsenal and Spurs chase Brazil ace
Latest news update:
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly locked in a battle with Tottenham to sign £10 million-rated Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao.
Wenger is anxious to improve his strikeforce at the Emirates during the close season with Dane Nicklas Bendtner set to leave in the summer and he has had scouts watching Damiao over the last six months.
The 21-year-old has scored 22 goals in 24 games for his Internacional so far this year and is eager for the chance to prove himself in the Premier League.
Gunners officials are expected to hold talks with his representatives at the start of next month but reports this week suggest that Tottenham hope to beat their rivals to his signature by sending a delegation to Brazil to try to finalise a deal.
