Leeds United were linked with a number of possible transfer targets in the January transfer window and one man has since admitted he was ‘tempted’ by the opportunity to join them on loan.
According to Tuttosport, via Sport Witness, Moise Kean was keen on a potential switch to Elland Road, however, Juventus stood in his way of leaving.
Leeds were not the only side to be mentioned in the report though, with AC Milan also being credited with the possibility of acquiring his services.
The 19-year-old is considered to be an exciting prospect, with Juventus believed to want to extend his contract in Turin, via Calciomercato.
However, he is yet to really get a chance in Massimiliano Allegri’s first-team, making two substitute appearances in the Serie A this season for a combined two minutes, per Transfermakrt.
Kean could have been an excellent addition for Leeds in January as they look to continue in their quest for Premier League football.
The 19-year-old is believed to be a real talent and could have a youngster that would thrive under the tutoring of Marcelo Bielsa and play an important role for the Whites.
With things being far from perfect for the teenager at Juventus at the moment, Leeds could look to make a move for him in the summer should the Italian outfit be prepared to allow him to leave the club.
