Arsenal and Tottenham are battling for Internacional striker Leandro Damiao. The Daily Star says the 23-year-old has been a long-term target for Spurs, who have spent the last three transfer windows chasing the Internacional star.

And the White Hart Lane club were thought to be hopeful of finally securing a deal for the hit-man once the current Brazilian season finishes at the end of the year.

But Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger has also targeted Leandro as a January recruit, to fulfil the continuing void left by Robin van Persie's departure.
