Liverpool star hopes Brazil forward joins him at Anfield in January transfer window.
Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva says that if he could choose one player to sign for the Reds, it would be Santos ace Neymar.
He knows that is pretty unlikely though, with Liverpool not participating in the UEFA Champions League and Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea the most likely candidates for Neymar’s signature.
Instead then, Lucas has suggested Leandro Damiao of Internacional as the ideal man to lead the Liverpool strikeforce.
“The consensus in Brazil would be Neymar,” said Lucas to FourFourTwo.
“He is a different player now: a promise turned into reality. But I know signing him would be very hard, almost impossible.
“So among the other players who are currently in Brazil I would choose Leandro Damião.
“He would suit the Premier League very well, as he is a strong centre-forward who finishes very well and knows how to play with his back to goal.”
Internacional star Leandro Damiao, who is 23 years of age, revealed yesterday he would like to join Oscar at Chelsea.
Why not meet up with his compatriot Lucas at Anfield?
