Leeds United have been ‘following’ AC Milan’s Rafael Leão ‘for some time’, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Whites made it to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years, winning the Championship under Marcelo Bielsa’s guidance.

Di Marizo claims the English club ‘intend to give Bielsa at least two’ players in the attacking division this summer.

The 21-year-old is considered as one of the targets, and Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani has ‘already moved’ to understand the feasibility of signing the forward.

It’s explained Radrizzani is now waiting for a response from the Serie A side, who had wanted to continue to bet on the Portugal U21 international.

Leão arrived at the San Siro from Lille in 2019 and featured regularly in the first half of last season, but had to settle for a place on Milan’s bench after the Rossoneri signed Zlatan Ibrahimović earlier this year.

He managed six goals and two assists in 31 league appearances and has a contract with the Italian side until 2024.
