Levante midfielder José Campaña is on Leeds United’s list of possible targets this summer, with him keen on making a move.
That’s what Super Deporte report today, stating that the player has ‘expressed internally’ his desire to move if an offer should be made for him between now and the end of the transfer window.
He has already discussed such an eventuality with manager Paco López and his teammates at the club, leading to president Quico Catalán having ‘verbally promised’ to facilitate a move if someone were to offer €30m.
No club has made an official proposal as yet, with both Sevilla and Villarreal having decided against a move.
‘The bullet in the chamber’ is now the Premier League, and according to his entourage, at least two clubs are willing to make a bid for him.
Super Deporte have confirmed one of these is Leeds United, who have him on their list of potential additions for Marcelo Bielsa.
However, a move is considered a ‘difficult operation’ for Leeds to get done on an economic level after they already made ‘strong investments’ on the likes of Rodrigo.
Everything so far indicates that they would not match the €30m minimum that Levante are demanding before they will sit down to negotiate a deal.
The interest is there, though, and perhaps a push from Bielsa could convince his superiors to stump up more cash to get another signing over the line for him.
