Two days ago, Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Leeds United have ‘already moved’ for Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
On Thursday, Calciomercato stated Tottenham Hotspur, Napoli and AC Milan ‘like’ the 21-year-old and the trio are also in the picture to sign the Georgia international. His situation at the club has become complicated following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
According to Il Mattino, the winger has decided not to return to Rubin Kazan after the ongoing international break.
It’s claimed he has communicated his decision to Russia side, but they have not received an offer to sell him so far. Although the transfer window is closed, UEFA have opened a new window for players who want to leave Russia and join another club until the end of this season.
Kvaratskhelia’s idea is to return to his country, where FC Dinamo Batumi are ‘waiting to have him’ for the remainder of the campaign and he will then be in a position to find a new club in the summer.
Despite suggestions the attacker will move back to Georgia, Rubin Kazan, for now, have denied this possibility.
When discussing his suitors for the next window, Il Mattino mentions Napoli, Tottenham and ‘Leeds above all’.
With Jesse Marsch’s side in the mix along with Spurs, Kvaratskhelia deciding to cut ties with Rubin Kazan is a boost for Leeds’ chances.
