Agent: Damiao open to Napoli move

SoccerNews in Serie A 30 Mar 2013


Leandro Damiao’s agent insists Napoli have not made an approach for the Internacional player, but said his client is open to a switch to Serie A.

The Brazil international has been repeatedly linked with a move to Europe and Tottenham Hotspur failed with a 19 million-euro bid for 23-year-old striker during the January transfer window.

Napoli are also said to be considering Damiao as a replacement for the in-demand Edinson Cavani but the Brazilian’s agent said there has not yet been any contact with Napoli.

“I cannot comment on something that is not there, seeing has I have received nothing in writing, or even an offer from Napoli,” Vinicius Prates told

“If an interesting proposal should arrive for us and Internacional, there would be a good chance that Leandro leaves.

“He’s happy at Internacional. He’s been one of the best Brazilian goalscorers for several years now.

“But it’s possible that he will leave during the summer transfer window if the conditions mentioned before are met.”

Borussia Dortmund has also been mentioned as a possible destination for Damiao and Prates said the player would be keen to discuss a move to Signal Iduna Park.

“It’s a big club that I like a lot,” he said. “I repeat: if a big club like Borussia or the other great European sides should formalise a proposal for us and for Internacional, we would evaluate it carefully.”

Internacional said earlier this week that Damiao, who has been capped 14 times by Brazil, is expected to leave the club.
