Leeds United have reportedly made a €15m (£13.6m) bid for Levante playmaker Jose Campana, according to a report from Eldesmarque.
With deadline day fast approaching, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is said to be wanting a couple of new faces having been linked with the likes of Todd Cantwell in recent times.
A failed move for Bayern Munich midfielder Michael Cuisance has indicated that the Argentine tactician wants to add another option to the central midfield area of his squad.
Having spent almost £80m already this summer, Bielsa has now been linked with a La Liga based player in the name of Campana, who is currently on the books of Levante.
The 27-year-old – who has already spent time in English football having had a loan spell with Crystal Palace in the 2013/14 season – has featured in all three of Levante’s opening league games this term so far.
Valued at £18m by Transfermarkt, Leeds’ reported offer of £13.5m will test the Spanish club’s desire to keep hold of the 27-year-old.
The figure reported by Spanish outlet Eldesmarque would push Bielsa’s summer spend near to the £100m mark, but it remains to be seen if a move for the Spanish midfielder does move forward after a report claimed that personal terms had already been agreed between the Yorkshire club and Norwich midfield ace Cantwell.
Jose Campana would be a superb signing for Leeds, as he grabbed seven league assists last term and is already averaging a whopping 4.3 dribbles per game this season as well as 1.7 key passes, via Whoscored. However, a deal this late in the day does seem far fetched.
Todd Cantwell does seem to be the most likely arrival before Monday’s deadline and that would seemingly suffice after what has proved to be quite a good transfer window for Bielsa.
Despite Campana’s experience of English football, Cantwell offers a much longer-term solution given his tender age and that would seemingly be the correct avenue to go down.
