Leeds United are yet to register a win in 2021 as they suffered three defeats in the last three matches and it includes a 3-0 loss against Crawley Town in the FA Cup. The Whites have even failed to score in any of these fixtures.
Marcelo Bielsa has admitted his side will look to make a new signing in the winter market if the player can “clearly improve the squad.”
Over the past few weeks, multiple reports from Italy have covered Leeds United interest in Fiorentina’s Erick Pulgar.
On January 18th, La Nazione stated the 27-year-old is ‘at the centre of contacts’ with Torino and the Premier League side, and the latter are looking to take the midfielder on a dry loan deal.
Calciomercato has a short update on the Chile international, explaining the player is a target for both Sevilla and Leeds.
Regarding the English club, it’s claimed Bielsa’s side ‘would be ready to put up to €25m on the plate’ to sign Pulgar.
This report contradicts claims made by La Nazione on Monday as the newspaper explained Leeds are looking to take the South American on ‘dry loan’ deal.
Calciomercato explain the Serie A club’s outgoings ‘may not be concluded’ after allowing Patrick Cutrone, Pol Lirola and Alfred Duncan to leave the club.
This indicates Fiorentina are open to letting Pulgar follow the trio towards the exit door.
