Brazilian wonderkid Leandro Damiao has hinted that he is interested in a move to England after his club Internacional failed to qualify for the Copa Liberadores, as reported by Sky Sports.

Damiao is now a regular in the Brazilian national squad and is a target of many European clubs including Tottenham and Arsenal, but the player would prefer a move to Chelsea.

“I have a contract until 2015 with Internacional and for the moment, despite all the rumours, I am staying where I am and that is in Porte Alegre with Internacional,” Damiao told the Elastico.

“The Premier League holds great attraction, of course.

“I was in England for quite some time during the Olympics and it is a great country with good people. But for the moment I am staying put.

“(Chelsea new signing) Oscar is a fantastic player.”

“I had an excellent relationship with him on the field at Internacional and it is true that I would like to be reunited with Oscar. We still play together when fielded for Brazil.

“But, I have a contract to honour at Internacional. Regardless of the fact that Internacional will not play the Copa Libertadores  next year, I maintain my focus here at Internacional.

“It is not an incentive to leave. When a European club will come to the fore, we will see.”
