Reports emerging from the British press over the weekend have linked Leeds United with two potential signings.
Leeds interested in Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico
First, it has been suggested that the Whites are in the market for a left-back, after being linked with Ajax and Argentina star, Nicolas Tagliafico.
The defender linked up with Ajax in 2018, after departing his home country for Europe for the 2nd time.
The 28-year-old has since established himself an integral member of the Dutch outfit’s backline, and played a key role in both their recent Eredivisie title success, and the Champions League run which saw Ajax reach the semi-finals in 2019.
All told, Tagliafico has notched 135 appearances in all competitions for the capital giants, across which he has scored 13 and assisted 18.
Now, though, according to the Mirror, Leeds are working on what they describe as an ‘ambitious’ move for the full-back.
It is suggested that Marcelo Bielsa views the addition of a new left-back as a priority this summer, with Tagliafico an ideal signing. No potential fee is mentioned in the report.
Leeds linked with Rangers’ Ryan Kent
Elsewhere, Leeds also appear to be eyeing reinforcements at the other end of the pitch.
As per the Sun, the Peacocks are interested in a move for Rangers winger, Ryan Kent.
Kent has enjoyed a fine 2020/21 campaign to date, scoring 12 and assisting 13 as Rangers picked up their first league title since 2011.
The Sun suggest that Leeds have previously tabled a bid worth £11m for Kent, but may need to go as high as £15m to actually sign him.
The 24-year-old’s current contract with Rangers will have two years left to run in the summer.
