Leeds United have been linked with Sampdoria defender Omar Colley in recent weeks.

According to the Sampnews24 (translated by Sportwitness), the Premier League club are keen on the Gambia international and willing to submit an offer this summer.

The 28-year-old has done well for the Italian side after being linked with a move to Elland Road at the start of the season.

Sampdoria value the player at around €12-13 million, and the asking price would not be a problem for the Premier League outfit.

SL View: Defensive addition should be a priority for Bielsa

There is no doubt that Leeds need to improve their defensive options, and Colley could prove to be a quality addition.

He has the defensive qualities and the physical attributes to succeed in English football and could prove to be a massive bargain if he adapts to the Premier League.

Leeds have had an impressive season since winning promotion, but they will feel that they could have done better. The Whites have been let down by their defensive vulnerabilities.

They could have challenged for Europa League qualification with a better defensive unit, and manager Marcelo Bielsa will be eager to fix the problem before the start of next season.

The Whites are currently 10th in the Premier League table, and they will be looking to finish as high as possible.
