Nahitan Nandez would be ‘one of the signings of the summer’ if Leeds United manage to snap him up, according to journalist Conor Clancy.
The Lowdown: Leeds linked with Nandez move
The Whites have been linked with a number of players during the summer transfer window, but Nandez’s name has appeared in more stories than most.
The Latest: Journalist excited by potential move
Speaking to Football FanCast, Serie A expert Clancy, editor at Forza Italian Football, spoke about Nandez’s quality and said he would be a fantastic signing for Leeds:
“If Leeds could get him, that would be one of the signings of the summer in the Premier League.
“But I do see it as increasingly unlikely that the deal will be done now.”
The Verdict: Would be a huge coup
It doesn’t look likely that the Whites will get their man this summer, as Clancy alludes to – Inter Milan seem to be front-runners – but they should keep trying to sign the 25-year-old.
The Uruguayan could be a strong alternative to Kalvin Phillips, or someone who could partner him in midfield. The England international is such a crucial component for Bielsa but there are fears he may be relied upon too much, so we feel Leeds should pull out all the stops to sign Nandez.
In other news, one Leeds player may have appeared for the Whites for the last time. Find out who it is here.
