Leeds United are among several clubs eyeing up a move for Croatian youngster Lovro Majer in the January transfer window.

That’s according to Calciomercato, who say the Dinamo Zagreb youngster, who has been compared to Luka Modric in his home country, is courting interest from all around Europe.

They report that Leeds are one of several teams to have ‘taken information’ regarding the 22-year-old, with Borussia Dortmund, Fiorentina, Valencia and Sevilla also named as suitors.

AC Milan have joined the hunt for the midfielder, going as far as to send ‘observers’ to follow the youngster in Dinamo’s clash with Feyenoord in the Europa League this week.

Majer is ‘ready for a new challenge’ in a ‘more competitive league’ but getting him out of Zagreb could prove tricky given he has a contract with the Croatian side until 2023.

Whether they will even be open to a sale isn’t mentioned, nor is any potential asking price, but it was made clear throughout the summer when Leeds were chasing Josko Gvardiol that they are in need of money to cover a hole in their finances.

That would suggest they would be open to a sale; indeed Leeds could make use of their existing relationship to get ahead of the competition.
