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
