Leeds United fans were offering mixed reactions to the club’s chase of Chievo ‘keeper Elia Caprile after reports over interest.
Could this Leeds team beat this Man Utd team?
Without a doubt
Not a chance
According to reports in Italy (via The Athletic’s Leeds correspondent), the Yorkshire outfit are interested in signing the 18-year-old, who is seen as a good prospect.
The news comes after the brilliant performance on 19-year-old loanee Illan Meslier, who impressed on his debut in the FA Cup tie against Arsenal.
Caprile has endured a tough season with Chievo this campaign, conceding 26 goals in just 13 league games with the Italian side (via Transfermarkt).
Fans weren’t all feeling the same way about the reports over an interest in the 6 foot 3 player with some believing it’s a good move, while others remain unsure due to various reasons.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
We are short of goalkeepers at academy/23 level so seems a sensible move.

That’s his stats in the u19s 2nd flight Italian league. 6ft 3 for anyone that cares. Also for context he plays for a team that are 2nd to bottom in the league. 18 years old. pic.twitter.com/Tpdrym1yPe

We’d be silly not to sign him

We don’t need a keeper right now…..we need a goal machine!!!

Wouldn’t we be better keeping Miazek/Huffer as an understudy for a few weeks? Seems daft to waste wages if little difference?

Wow shouldn’t we be getting busy signing first team striker ?!
