As we’ve explained in the past, we’re not entirely sure why Leeds United, who seem very keen on Erick Pulgar, haven’t made a move for the Chilean just yet.

We doubt a shortage of money is behind this reluctance, since it doesn’t appear like the Fiorentina midfielder would cost much, but Corriere dello Sport on Friday suggest the waiting game is far from over.

Looking at Fiorentina’s potential moves in January, the newspaper reminds their readers the Chile international remains on the list of Marcelo Bielsa and the rest of his staff, explaining ‘Leeds look with interest’ at the Serie A side’s ‘moves to understand if the conditions for a negotiation for Erick Pulgar can be opened’.

Considering he was on the bench but never came on against Lazio in Fiorentina’s 2-1 loss in midweek, it’s quite clear he isn’t in Cesare Prandelli’s first-team plans, but it could be Daniele Pradè wants to ensure he has a replacement ready, perhaps in the shape of Lucas Torreira, before letting Pulgar go.

Either way, there’s not a lot of actual movement.

Just a lot of waiting, but with more than 20 days left in the transfer window, there’s still plenty of time for Leeds to jump into action.
