Ronaldo Vieira has a possibility to rejoin Leeds United, more than three years after leaving Elland Road for Sampdoria in 2018.
The 23-year-old spent the previous season on loan at Hellas Verona and last made an appearance in February.
According to Club Doria 46, the midfielder has struggled with a series of injuries this year and in order to relaunch his career, he could decide to return to England.
In the summer transfer window, he was ‘one step away’ from joining Sheffield United. He is still ‘courted by the Premier League’.
The opportunity for the former England U21 international to play again in his country ‘could be an extra weapon’ needed to convince him. The Whites are ‘focusing on this aspect to convince the player’ for the transfer.
It’s claimed the Leeds hypotheses will be the ‘best solution’ for both Vieira and the Serie A side. Sampdoria sporting director Daniele Faggiano is tasked to raise €25m in the winter market and he could start by cashing in from Vieira’s sale, who has a market value of €5m.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side are said to be hoping to use Vieira’s desire to return to England to ‘convince’ him to join Leeds. With the player and his employer in favour of a January move, a deal is there to be concluded, if the Premier League side can find an agreement with Sampdoria.
