Leandro Damiao: Has been linked with a number of clubs, and Napoli have now join

The Brazil international has been the subject of intense transfer speculation throughout the summer, but remains in South America for now.

A move to the Premier League was mooted at one stage, with Tottenham Hotspur known to have been tracking the 23-year-old for some time.

No deal has been put in place, though, and Damiao is still available to the highest bidder.

Napoli have money to spend following the sale of Edinson Cavani to Paris St Germain and Benitez intends to put those funds towards the acquisition of two frontmen - one of which could be Damiao.

He told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Damiao is very good.

"Two attackers will arrive: one who is more of a centre-forward and the other a support striker.

"We are looking for players at a fair price, but it is clear that to compete at a certain level we need players with experience and international quality."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
