Leeds United are keen on a deal for Feyenoord centre back Marcos Senesi but may have to pay as much as €20m for him.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side are likely to be busy this summer as the Argentine looks to improve his squad ahead of their first campaign back in the Premier League.
Adding a centre-back to his squad is likely to be an issue he will wish to solve having lost defender Ben White, who has returned to Brighton following the end of his loan deal.
And according to Radio Continental journalist Martin Flores, Bielsa is eyeing up a compatriot to fill the gap.

That man is Feyenoord defender Marcos Senesi, who say is being ‘targeted’ by the Championship winners.
That is all he offers on a potential move, failing to mention whether Leeds have been in contact with the Dutch side about a move or anything of that nature.
They also fail to mention an asking price, but that need is filled by Fox Sports, who, while covering Flores’ tweet add some extra detail.
They say that Feyenoord, and specifically coach Dick Advocaat, ‘absolutely does not want’ to lose Senesi but may have no choice if Leeds are willing to pay.
Their asking price is currently ‘around twenty million’ for the 23-year-old, with it unclear if Leeds are willing to pay such a price at this point.
