Leeds United could sign Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez in the January transfer window, according to a fresh report which has emerged from Italy.
The Lowdown: Leeds constantly linked with Nandez
The Whites were tipped to sign numerous players during the summer, but Nandez was endlessly linked with a move to Elland Road.
The Latest: Interest could return in January
It is stated that there are ‘eyes from the Premier League’, which suggests Leeds remain keen on acquiring the signature of the 25-year-old.
The Verdict: Possible Phillips replacement?
Nandez is an experienced international who possesses great quality in midfield – BBC pundit Mina Rzouki hailed him as ‘unstoppable’ and ‘amazing’. It could be that Leeds see him as a future Kalvin Phillips replacement.
While the idea of both playing alongside one another is a mouthwatering prospect, it is going to become increasingly difficult to keep Phillips, with big clubs likely to hover next summer after the ‘Yorkshire Pirlo’ was crowned England’s player of the year.
Nandez could be the perfect fit instead, adding similar levels of energy and bite in the middle of the park, averaging 1.3 tackles per game in the league so far this season.
