Leeds United’s proposed move for Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez is still a long way from being completed, according to a fresh report.
The Lowdown: Leeds interested in Nandez move
The Whites could have a busy summer transfer window on their hands once Euro 2020 is over and players are focusing on their futures.
The Latest: Negative update emerges
Leeds’ interest in Nandez remains strong, but the ‘road would be long and not all downhill’ with regards to the Whites getting their man, who is also courted by Roma and Serie A champions Inter Milan.
The Verdict: Primary summer target
Leeds fans may have to be patient, but Nandez is a player who Marcelo Bielsa may feel is worth waiting for this summer, having been hailed as a ‘great player’ by his agent Pablo Bentancur.
Valued at £19.8m by Transfermarkt, the 25-year-old would bring undoubted pedigree in the middle of the park, having already won 39 caps for a Uruguay side which also features the likes of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.
Averaging 1.8 successful tackles per Serie A game in 2020/21, he could be a strong partner for Kalvin Phillips in the middle of the park, making Leeds an even more daunting prospect ahead of next season.
In other news, Leeds are reportedly determined to sign one player this summer – find out who it is here.
