The Brazil international has been followed closely by Tottenham - who have made more than one bid for him over the past 18 months,

With Napoli and Marseille also linked in recent weeks, a move to Europe again looks on the agenda for the 23-year-old.

Luigi was in Europe last week, when he attended the Champions League final in London - but he insisted that was nothing to do with Damiao.

"No club contacted me. I was there [in Europe] alone," Luigi told Radio Gaucha.

"I went to see the [Wembley] stadium well and to watch the game. But I didn't talk with anybody regarding the player."

Luigi did admit that he was expecting offers - but did not know if Tottenham would be back for him.

"It's possible that an offer happens, but I don't know if it will be from Tottenham," he said.

"The player has been called up again, will play the Confederations Cup and is wanted [by many clubs]."
