Leeds set for boost in the transfer pursuit of Nahitan Nandez

Leeds United have been heavily linked with Nahitan Nandez over the last few weeks.

The Uruguayan midfielder is also a target for Inter Milan, but they are close to signing Hakan Calhanoglu and his arrival could help the Whites seal Nandez’s signature.

According to Calcio Casteddu, Inter Milan will find it difficult to pay the €36 million release clause for Nandez on top of their outlay for Calhanoglu.

Nandez has been a key player for Cagliari, and the Italian club are unlikely to let him leave for a bargain price.

It would be fair to assume that Leeds will have to pay Nandez’s release clause if they want to sign him this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa needs to add more depth to his central midfield, and the 25-year-old would be a quality addition.

The hard-working midfielder’s pressing ability makes him a perfect fit for how the Argentine manager wants to play.

Leeds have an impressive squad at their disposal but need to add more depth to push for European qualification next season.

Bielsa’s style of football is physically demanding, and having options to rotate the squad could prove to be crucial for the Whites.
