The Gunners have already had £30, and £40, (+£1) bids turned down, but should they add another £10m to their previous efforts, they may give the Reds something to think about.
Luis Suarez has caused a great deal of trouble over the last 12 months and for that much money, Brendan Rodgers may be willing to cut ties.
But his sale would leave the Reds with a big gap in their squad and little time to fill it. That’s why it’s important to have a plan in place should Suarez move on this summer.
Whilst he’s not quite up there on Suarez’s level, I think he would be a good replacement for the Uruguayan (he’d certainly be considerably less trouble).
The 24-year-old is remarkably gifted. He’s fleet of foot, can take players on and has excellent technical ability. He’s also surprisingly strong in the air, can hold the ball up well and is good at combining with other players. Most importantly, he’s also confident in front of goal and knows how to find the back of the net.
Given his frame, speed and grace on the ball, I’d say he’d be a good fit for the Premier League and Liverpool in particular. Whether or not Luis Suarez moves on this summer, I hope Brendan Rodgers makes a move for Damiao.
At 24-years-old, the Brazilian ace is still yet to hit his peak. Now’s the time for a club like Liverpool to make their move. The player himself must surely be up for a move to Europe, where he’ll really be able to attract the limelight. It’s not clear how much Internacional would want for the player, but he certainly wont come cheap.
Liverpool have started the season well. Signing a top talent like Damiao would only add to the wealth of good feeling currently surrounding the club. The Reds are already extremely well placed. Damiao would simply be the icing on the cake.
What’s your take? Should Brendan Rodgers make a move for Leandro Damiao, or should he look elsewhere?
