Leeds United: Fresh Nahitan Nandez transfer claim emerges

Leeds United: Fresh Nahitan Nandez transfer claim emerges -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United have again been linked with a move for Cagliari and Uruguay midfielder Nahitan Nandez, as the Whites eye up a potential January transfer.

The Lowdown: Nandez a constant target

The 25-year-old was linked with a move to Elland Road during the summer transfer window, as Marcelo Bielsa looked at players to bolster his midfield. Reports even went so far as to reveal Victor Orta had flown out to Sardinia to chase a deal.

Nandez ended up remaining at Calgiari, however, where he was again been an influential figure, making 15 starts in Serie A and registering two assists.

With Kalvin Phillips out injured for the foreseeable future, it is paramount that a midfield replacement is signed next month and it looks as though Leeds are pushing hard for the Uruguay international.

The Latest: Another rumour emerges

According to FCInterNews [via Sport Witness], the Whites have again identified Nandez as a target after the injury to Phillips, ‘returning to the office’ with another attempt to acquire his signature.

It is stated that the midfielder has been ‘promised’ to Inter Milan, however, potentially acting as a big blow to Leeds.

The Verdict: Perfect January addition

Nandez’s quality is plain to seen, with his expertise from a defensive midfield seeing him shine for both Cagliari and Uruguay, so he would be a superb addition at Leeds.

He is strong in both his on and off-the-ball work, with an average of 1.5 dribbles per game in the league this season nicely complemented by 2.4 aerial duel wins and 2.0 tackles, with his defensive contribution the biggest strength to his game.

The fact that a Champions League outfit in the shape of Inter appear to be in the race is a concern, though, and if Leeds do miss out on their man, it is vital that someone else of a similar calibre comes in and solves Bielsa’s midfield issue.
