Former All Leeds TV presenter Joe Wainman has tipped Leeds United to make a deadline day move for Nahitan Nandez after the midfielder’s move to Inter Milan appeared to collapse.
Nandez has been high on Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa’s wishlist since the transfer window opened and Corriere dello Sport reported the Whites were close to agreeing a £31million deal with Cagliari in June.
But the Yorkshire club were dealt a blow as Italian giants Inter entered the race for the midfielder’s services and, according to FC Inter News, Nandez made the San Siro his preferred destination.
Will Nandez join Leeds before the window closes?
The report revealed Nandez had already agreed personal terms, including a four-year contract, with the reigning Serie A champions.
However, the transfer saga took another shock turn when, according to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport via Semprinter, talks with Inter broke down earlier this week.
Wainman believes the 25-year-old Uruguay international, who made 34 appearances for Cagliari last term, could still head to Elland Road.
The JustJoe Football Show anchorman told The Transfer Tavern: “If Inter Milan can’t secure the signature of Nandez and it gets to deadline day, a move could happen.
“I think Leeds are waiting for changes in the market and a call from the agent or club to say he’s available. They might pounce then.
“We didn’t bring in Raphinha or Diego Llorente until late in the window last year because they became available at really cheap prices. If that happens with Nandez, why not?”
