Leeds: Whites name-checked with N’Koulou interest

Leeds: Whites name-checked with N’Koulou interest - Leeds United

Leeds United have been name-checked as a potential destination for Torino centre-back Nicolas N’Koulou.

That’s according to Italian outlet il Corriere Granata, cited by Sempre Milan, who have credited the Whites, along with AC Milan, Napoli and Bologna with an interest in the 31-year-old.

N’Koulou, who is on £48,000-a-week with Torino, is out of contract at the end of the current campaign, with no negotiations of an extension taking place to date, meaning he wouldn’t cost a penny when it comes to a transfer fee.

The Cameroon international, who has 72 caps for his country, has made 128 appearances for Torino, but it seems as if he could end his four-year association with the club over the coming months.

It's quiz time! You've just got to tell us how much these Leeds players cost when they joined the club. Let's start with a nice easy one - club-record signing Rodrigo...

Transfer Tavern take

Even though the Whites have been credited with an interest in N’Koulou, we can’t see Victor Orta going after the experienced defender on a free transfer this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa, who doesn’t tend to love a big squad, already has Liam Cooper, Diego Llorente, Robin Koch and Pascal Struijk as senior options, with Luke Ayling and Kalvin Phillips also capable of filling in when required.

On that basis, adding N’Koulou as a fifth centre-back ahead of the 2021/22 season could be a needless addition, and his salary could be better used elsewhere.
