The European transfer window closes in less than two weeks and it’s still not clear where Southampton’s Guido Carrillo will ply his trade after September 2nd.
He spent last season on loan at Leganes and they have been trying to sign the striker again for much of the summer.
After their defeat to Osasuna, Leganes manager Mauricio Pellegrino admitted the financial demands for the operation have made it ‘very difficult’ for them to sign him.
On August 21st, AS reported the Argentine was offered to Espanyol and they were ‘evaluating him’.
The South American is also drawing attention from Serie A, according to Sky Italia.
Lecce are looking to strengthen their attacking division and have become the latest club to join the race for the Saints player.
The Italian side have probed a few players like Jackson Martinez (who is happy at Portuguese side Portimonense) and Wilfred Bony, and the latest ‘idea’ is Carrillo.
Sky only claims Carrillo is a target for Lecce and no additional details are mentioned in the report.
