Leeds: Whites offered potential Nahitan Nandez boost -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United have been given a possible boost in their quest to sign Nahitan Nandez, with a report from Italy claiming that he may have played his last game for Cagliari.

The Lowdown: Nandez links continue

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move to Elland Road for some time, which suggests that there is genuine interest in his services.

Nandez has started 15 Serie A games for Cagliari this season and continued to be a key player for them, averaging two tackles per game for the Sardinian outfit.

As the January transfer window approaches, the rumour is still lingering, especially with Kalvin Phillips’ injury heightening the need for midfield additions.

The Latest: Leeds offered hope

According to Calciomercato [via Sport Witness], Nandez’s appearance against Udinese on Sunday ‘may have been his last match’ for Cagliari after he went off injured in his team’s 4-0 defeat.

A January exit looks likely, with Leeds and Tottenham’s interest both mentioned in the report.

The Verdict: Sign him up, Whites

From a Whites perspective, signing Nandez is a no-brainer, with Marcelo Bielsa desperate to bring in a quality midfielder at a crucial moment in the season. A spate of injuries are threatening to completely derail Leeds’ campaign, not least with regards to Phillips’ lengthy absence, and the Uruguayan seems to have the experience and ability to be a top-class signing.

Nandez’s next appearance for his country will be his 50th, as he has become a key figure in a team containing Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, Meanwhile, at Cagliari he is averaging 1.1 key passes and 1.5 dribbles per game in the league this season.

In comparison, Phillips and Adam Forshaw are averaging 0.6 and 0.3, and 0.9 and 0.5, respectively for those metrics, which suggests that the Uruguayan could bring something different to Leeds in the middle of the park.
