Leeds: Fresh Hakan Calhanoglu transfer claim emerges

Leeds: Fresh Hakan Calhanoglu transfer claim emerges - Leeds United News

Leeds United continue to show interest in signing Inter Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu this summer, with a fresh update emerging from abroad.

The Lowdown: Calhanoglu rumour emerges

The Whites will hopefully enjoy a busy summer transfer window, likely under new owners in the 49ers Enterprises, bringing in a number of new signings who can improve their squad, assuming they remain in the Premier League.

Earlier this week, Leeds were linked with a move for Calhanoglu, who has continued to be a key man for Inter this season, starting 24 Serie A matches.

The 29-year-old’s current deal expires at the end of the 2023/24 campaign, so this summer could be Inter’s last chance to receive a fee for him.

The Latest: New transfer update

According to Inter Live, there is still interest in Calhanoglu from Leeds, although Newcastle United are also thought to be eyeing up his signature.

A bid of around €25-30million (£22.2-26.5m) could be enough to sign him, depending on Inter’s stance in the coming months.

Leeds fans, do you remember how much Raphinha's move to Barcelona was worth?

The Verdict: Could be a great signing

Canhanoglu is someone who possesses both undeniable pedigree and quality, having won 74 caps for Turkey, also scoring 17 times for his country.

The Inter ace is renowned for being one of the greatest free-kick takers of his generation, scoring 25 direct free kicks and he has been called both a ‘leader’ and ‘intelligent’ by Stefano Pioli in the past.

For these reasons, Calhanoglu could be a hugely exciting summer signing by Leeds, adding an element of stardust to the midfield, not to mention a wealth of experience.

He now has a total of 303 appearances in Serie A and the Bundesliga combined, but at 29, there is no reason why he can’t remain at the highest level for several years to come.
