05 July 2013 02:35

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed his interest in Tottenham target Leandro Damiao, who is valued around £18million by Internacional.

Spurs have been tracking the 23-year-old for over two years and Internacional are now resigned to losing Damiao, who bagged 24 goals in 43 appearances last term and is largely expected to make the Brazil squad for next year's World Cup.

The powerful forward was due to be in Brazil's winning Confederations Cup squad but had to pull out due to injury.
