Having been loaned by Leeds United to AS Roma in the summer for a second spell, Diego Llorente is fighting for a chance to leave Elland Road for good.

The centre-back found a lot of joy under José Mourinho, who was the one who wanted him in the first place, and is trying to do the same with Daniele De Rossi now at the helm.

An article on Tuesday suggested the Serie A side were considering making the move permanent to then make a profit on the Leeds man, and while Gazzetta dello Sport on Wednesday don’t quite go that far, they do hint that a transfer is on the cards.

Everything rests on whether Llorente can impress his new manager, and he will get an ‘important chance’ to do so in the Europa League on Thursday, as he will start from the off against Feyenoord.

Gazzetta dello Sport do believe he faces an ‘uphill’ battle to remain, but some good performances could see him push his club and De Rossi to ‘redeem him’ from Leeds.

As the Italian newspaper explain, it could all come down to thin margins, and all it might take is ‘one match, maybe even two’ to get what he wants, as they give him a 50% chance of being an AS Roma player next season.
