Liverpool reportedly want Internacional striker Leandro Damiao.

Brendan Rodgers has large funds available for a ­marquee signing before the transfer window closes.

The club have already missed out on Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who chose Borussia Dortmund, and Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa – and the Reds are concerned the same thing could yet happen with Anzhi Makhachkala’s exciting ­attacker Willian, 25.

Liverpool have back-up ­options in place as potential major ­signings though.

And Sunday People Sport ­understands Brazilian forward Damiao, 24, is on that list.

The Internacional striker has long been pursued by Tottenham, but they found it difficult to ­negotiate a deal.

Damiao still wants a move to Europe though and he could be a good buy for the club
