Leeds have been boosted by the news that Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico could be available for £13m in the summer transfer window.
The Whites look set to have a busy next few months as Marcelo Bielsa likely aims to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.
Leeds have taken five points off Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United in their last three games, and while that shows the levels they can now reach, they could still go up another gear.
With Ezgjan Alioski looking likely to leave at the end of the campaign, a new left-back looks set to be a transfer priority for Bielsa in the summer.
Fresh update on Tagliafico emerges
Both Manchester City and Inter Milan are also mentioned as potential suitors for the 28-year-old, who has won 27 caps at international level for Argentina and was recently lauded as a “top-quality player” by Kevin Campbell, who was addressing this very transfer rumour in an interview with Football Insider.
Transfer Tavern take
Considering the experience and quality Tagliafico possesses, he could be an excellent replacement for Alioski. He is still young enough to have a few more years left in him at the top, but has also been around long enough to be a safe pair of hands, chipping in with one goal and three assists this season.
If Leeds are to go up a level, they may need players who know how to win trophies and Tagliafico is one of those, clinching the Eredivisie title in 2018/19. His experience of 331 club career games, along with his defensive prowess (two tackles and 2.1 headers won per game this season), also suggests that he could be a tremendous addition if Bielsa can attract him to Yorkshire.
In other news, Leeds are expecting one player to leave the club this summer. Find out who it is here.
