According to a report by Italian news outlet Calciomercato, defender Nicolas Nkoulou is one of the players who will almost certainly leave Torino at the end of the season – with Andrea Radrizanni and Leeds United eyeing a move for the Cameroonian whose contract is set to expire.
Indeed, the 30-year-old looks set to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season according to this report, with the Whites keeping close watch as they plot a swoop.
Nkoulou wanted by Leeds
Calciomercato say Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is a big fan of the 72-cap colossus with a plethora of experience on the international stage as the Africa Cup of Nations winner attracts attention from Elland Road.
He also possesses experience playing in the Champions League for both Lyon and Marseille, with Nkoulou and Bielsa previously working together at the latter club.
Indeed, the centre-back is a player who Leeds’ boss knows very well and is now keen on reuniting with in Yorkshire – coming as the defender’s Serie A exit looks inevitable.
Transfer Tavern take
Radrizzani and co could snap him up for free in the summer in a bid to bolster Bielsa’s Premier League options, with the lack of a price tag potentially being a main attraction amid financial uncertainty caused by COVID-19.
