7 Standout Players In The Brazilian Top Tier Who Premier League Clubs Should Be Looking At

Brazil is famous for producing great exports in terms of players, with the Ukrainian and Portuguese leagues often taking advantage of this. Shakhtar Donetsk in particular love a good Brazilian. Some recent exports include Neymar, Oscar and Bernard, which just goes to show how rich in talent they really are. My job today is to inform you of other players that are currently swimming in their pool of talent.

1. Leandro Damiao

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham in recent years, with the North London-based club seemingly returning with a new bid every transfer window. With the World Cup fast approaching it might finally be time for Damiao to make that move in order to gain enough recognition to make the squad.

2. Alexandro Pato

The former AC Milan star has experienced a dramatic fall from the top through injuries and lack of form. He is now playing for Corinthians and has score nine goals in 24 appearances, which is not a stunning record but also not a bad one. His recent stuggles haven’t stopped Arsenal being linked with a move for him.

3. Dede

The Cruzeiro centre-back often makes an appearance in the English tabloids, mainly in the rumours section due to a number of Premier League sides being linked with a move for him. Manchester United are seemingly the favourites to land this Brazilian beast.

4. Ganso

At a very young age he was tracked by a number of European sides, who saw his quick feet and vision in his passing as things that made him stand out from the rest. The limelight has been taken off him somewhat by other emerging talent, but his abilities remain the same and I think he’s fully deserving of a move to Europe in the near future.

5. Eduardo Vargas

The Chilean caused England all sorts of problems the other day and caused problems in the Brazilian league throughout the entirety of last season. He’d be a good signing for anyone who wants to utilise his pace and skills.

6. Doria

Doria is a real up-and-coming star in the Brazilian top division for Botafogo who has attracted interest from all over Europe. Chelsea are the team that is very much leading the way in the pursuit of the centre-back at the moment, who’s destined to become world class in the future.

7. Hernane

The Flamengo striker was a real force in his side’s 2013 campaign as he scored 11 goals and assisted a further six in 21 appearances. At the age of 27 and with a fee of under a million being quoted, I imagine a weaker European team may come in for him if any at all.
