Leeds United are seriously interested in signing Udinese midfielder Rodrigo de Paul, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Sky Sports journalist claimed that talks have opened between the two clubs, with the Whites looking to add to the signings of Rodrigo and Robin Koch.
Marcelo Bielsa is said to be eager to add another midfielder who can add serious goal involvements at Elland Road.
Gianluca Di Marzio took this story even further on Sunday afternoon, claiming that the Whites’ owners are in London looking to seal a final agreement.
It is suggested that they are meeting with Udinese owner Gino Pozzo looking to seal a deal for the Argentine international.
If Bielsa is looking for more goal involvements from his midfield, there aren’t many better than de Paul.
The 26-year-old has been involved in 30 goals in the past two Serie A seasons, the most of any player in the competition.
Angus Kinnear did claim that Leeds have between £75million and £100million to spend this summer, so this would fit perfectly into that budget.
Andrea Radrizzani is on fire this summer, and with the help of Victor Orta and his staff is building something very special.
Many Leeds fans have been blown away by this emerging transfer news, with the majority claiming this window couldn’t get any better.

That would be some quality signing and really strengthen the core of the team with Koch, De Paul and Rodrigo down the middle. Get it done Radz! #LUFC
