Brazil star Leandro Damiao has revealed he is in "no hurry" to leave Internacional, despite firm interest from Tottenham, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.
The 22-year-old striker, who scored a hat-trick against The Strongest in their Copa Libertadores clash this week, recently claimed that the North London giants had made a bid of around £20million for him.
And Internacional president Giovanni Luigi has admitted there has been firm interest from the Premier League for their star man, but Damiao claims he is happy to remain in Brazil for now.
He told TVCOM Esportes: "One day (the possibility of playing abroad) that day will come, but my career plan right now is to stay at Internacional.
"If I do leave, then I hope it will be for a big club like my current club Internacional. A club which is always fighting for titles.
"My current contract expires in 2016 but I am in no hurry to leave right now."
