Report details what club has told them about Leeds after £11.9m-rated striker link emerges
San Lorenzo are unaware of any interest from Leeds United in their international striker Adolfo Gaich, according to Ole.
The Argentine news outlet claims that they have spoken to their sources at San Lorenzo and while they acknowledge that Club Brugge have held talks about signing 21-year-old Gaich, Leeds’ interest is not known.
It is understood that San Lorenzo have also not heard from Inter Milan, Atalanta, Roma or Paris Saint-Germain with those clubs also linked with the one-time Argentina international.
Last week, Italian journalist Nicolo Schira reported that Leeds and their promotion rivals West Brom have an interest in Gaich.
Schira, who has written for Gazzetta Dello Sport, claims that Gaich has a release clause worth £11.9million and that Inter, Sevilla and Roma were also keen on him.
#Inter are looking Adolf #Gaich: the young striker could leave #SanLorenzo with the payment of the release clause ($15M). Also #Sevilla, #Leeds, #WBA and #Roma are interested in him. In the last months San Lorenzo rejected the bid of ACMilan and Bruges. #transfers

If Leeds are in pursuit of Gaich then that is clearly news to San Lorenzo but the Whites could be trying to keep their interest low-key for now.
Gaich is clearly a player who is attracting a lot of attention.
Clubs like Roma, Inter and PSG don’t just get linked with any old player – they are top clubs.
Leeds and West Brom may be eyeing up the Argentine as they plan for life in the Premier League but the 21-year-old is likely to be a risky addition.
Gaich has scored just seven goals in 27 first-team appearances in his career but he is capped by Argentina and has a low release clause.
Who knows what will happen at this stage but it is worth pointing out that West Brom were not mentioned in Ole’s report. Maybe their interest is also known to San Lorenzo.
