Salernitana owner Claudio Lotito will only consider selling his star forward Massimo Coda if a substantial offer is made. The 28-year-old has been in impressive form this season and has been linked with a move to Leeds United, along with Serie A clubs.
Occhiodi Salerno have reported Crotone’s efforts to sign Coda in this window, as they look to consolidate their place in Serie A. It’s been revealed Crotone want to offer Coda a huge contract, but Lotito has declared the player non-transferable unless a huge offer is made for him.
Only last week Serie A side Empoli were also showing an interest in Coda, and the forward has now become one of the most in demand players from Serie B.
During the last transfer window, we covered reports from Italy that Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino was showing an interest in Coda, and was hoping to secure a deal with the Serie B side before the deadline.
Despite no offer coming in from the Championship side it was claimed officials from Leeds United held meetings in Milan with the sporting director of Salernitana to thrash out a deal.
However, Leeds United’s approach came too late in the window, so a deal couldn’t be done in time, and perhaps the €3m fee was deemed too high.
