Leeds United are thought to be eyeing up the potential signing of Serbia and Torino midfielder Sasa Lukic, according to a fresh transfer rumour.
The Lowdown: Lukic impressing in Italy
The 26-year-old has become a key man for Torino as the years have passed, making a total of 163 appearances for the Serie A side.
He is currently on World Cup duty with Serbia, with an enticing game with Brazil to look forward to in their opener on Thursday evening.
The Latest: Leeds eyeing up move
The Serb has hinted at leaving Torino, saying he has ‘big ambitions’ for the future.
The Verdict: Strong midfield option
Lukic could be an ideal signing for Leeds, either in January or next summer, providing Jesse Marsch with more quality and energy in the middle of the park.
He averaged 2.6 tackles per game for Serbia in World Cup qualification, as well as the same number of fouls, highlighting what a tenacious player he is.
With Stuart Dallas and Adam Forshaw two midfielders who are likely past their best after respective injury problems, and with Kalvin Phillips no longer at Leeds, Lukic could make a big difference alongside the likes of Tyler Adams and Marc Roca.
