Leeds United are set to be part of an ‘auction’ for Udinese midfielder Rodrigo De Paul this summer, following an update on his future.
The Lowdown: Constant De Paul links
The Whites have been linked with a host of signings this summer, but De Paul has arguably been tipped to move to Elland Road more than anyone.
The Latest: Fresh update on midfielder
The likes of Atletico Madrid, Napoli, Milan, Juventus and Arsenal are also mentioned as potential suitors, ahead of what could be a bidding war for the Argentine.
The Verdict: Game-changing signing
Leeds face extremely stiff competition for De Paul and the fact that Champions League clubs want him could make them outsiders to get their man.
If Bielsa did manage to entice the Udinese man to Elland Road, however, it could be a massive signing, considering the all-around quality he possesses, being lauded for his ‘enormous output’ by football expert Dan Altman in the past.
Not only does De Paul’s ability in the final third speak for itself, as mentioned, but he also averaged 1.2 tackles per game in the league last season, showing he is willing to shine in the grittier aspects of his game, too.
In other news, a pundit has failed to rule out the idea of one Leeds key man leaving this summer. Find out who it is here.
