The agent of Salernitana forward Massimo Coda has told the Italian media offers have come in for his client. The 28-year-old has been linked with a move to Leeds United after the Championship side held talks to sign him towards the end of the last window.
Speaking to TMW, Beppe Galli was asked about the future of Coda after interest from Serie A clubs and Leeds United. Galli revealed at least three bids have come in for the forward, but the Salernitana leaders are holding out for €3m for their star forward. Galli said he’s happy with the attention Coda is getting from other clubs and the offers that are coming in.
“I think there were two or three requests but Lotito wants €3m. The kid deserves this assessment, I am happy of the requests because it means that Coda was taken into consideration,” said the player’s agent.
We covered reports just after the summer window regarding Leeds United’s last ditch attempt to sign Coda. Leeds United officials travelled to Italy to hold transfer talks, but a deal never materialised.
It was reported at the time Leeds United weren’t prepared to pay the €3m asking price, but given Coda’s goalscoring form this season, this seems a bargain.
