Marseille express interest in Damiao

French giants Marseille have moved to confirm their interest in Internacional striker Leandro Damiao.

The Brazilian is heavily linked with a switch to Europe, with Napoli and Tottenham believed to be leading the chase.

Marseille president Jose Anigo has now confirmed his interest in the Brazilian forward, albeit admitting he is too expensive at the moment.

“We know him very, very well. But, there are economic details that cannot be ignored. We are following him, but for now he is too expensive,” Jose Anigo confessed to L’Equipe.

The club chairman then revealed that he would only sign a new striker if Andre-Pierre Gignac was to leave in the summer.

“If Gignac stays, a priori, we will not sign anyone. Jordan (Ayew) wants to be used as a centre forward.”

Leandro Damiao is followed by some of Europe’s top clubs, but he has so far resisted temptation to leave Internacional.

The striker has scored a total of 68 goals in 124 league matches for the Brazilian giants, while netting 14 times in 22 international games.

The 23-year-old is widely tipped to leave his current employers in the summer transfer window, although he might decide to stay in Brazil until the 2014 World Cup.
