Just a few days ago, we covered a story from the Italian media claiming that Leeds United, in search of a centre-back, had focused their attention on Omar Colley.
The Sampdoria defender has been a target of theirs for a few months now, if reports are to be believed, but it appears the Elland Road side have started moving towards getting a deal done.
The previous report claimed a ‘concrete’ step had been made towards acquiring Colley ‘in recent days’, and Il Secolo XIX corroborate that, relayed by SampNews24.
The offer is now ‘ready’, and Sampdoria’s request of €12-13m ‘wouldn’t be a problem’ for the Premier League club, ‘considering higher figures have been spent on far less performing defenders’.
A step in the right direction once again, as it appears Colley could be heading to England’s top-tier in the coming months.
