Transfer Talk LATEST: Arsenal linked with top Brazilian striker ace for £30 million?
Leandro Damiao is the latest striker prospect Arsenal are pursuing, after their proposed deal for Gonzalo Higuain hit roadblocks on wage issues. Frenchman Arsene Wenger is not prepared to break the club’s wage structure to accommodate a single individual, and as a result he might look away to further prospects.
Leandro Damiao would be a perfect target for the North London club. The Internacional striker should come at a lower price than the Argentine, which would keep the prevailing wage structure at Emirates intact.
The Samba ace, 23, was top scorer at last summer’s Olympics football tournament.
Spurs had a £16m offer for the Internacional player turned down in January.
