Napoli quiet on Tottenham target

By Mark Finlay

Giovanni Luigi the president of Brazils Internacional says that Napoli have not contacted him over Spurs transfer target Leandro Damiao.

Rafa Benitez’s side Napoli was the favorites to sign the Brazilian with Tottenham and also Southampton thought to be in the running.

However following the sale of Edinson Cavani to PSG Napoli became the front runners as they look for a new striker.

Saying this however Luigi has not heard anything from Napoli and thinks that the Brazilian international could remain at the club for another year.

“No one from Napoli has spoken with me and I do not know if they are talking to his agent,” Luigi told Italian station Radio CRC

“But if I like a football player, I’m going to talk to his club and not with the agent.

“For me there is no negotiation started for Damiao with Napoli, this must be a guess because, I repeat, Napoli have not mentioned this interest either now or in the past.

“How much is he worth? I do not know if I’m going to sell. He should remain here. I believe the player will be here for at least another year.”
