Elia Caprile arrived at Leeds United during the January transfer window from Chievo Verona on a permanent deal and it looks like he may be about to receive a boost.
The 18-year-old goalkeeper made the switch to Elland Road this month and penned a deal that keep him at the Yorkshire giants until 2023.
He’s represented Italy at Under-18 age level and will be looking to make an impression in England.
It looks like he could be given a boost, with Rangers manager Steven Gerrard perhaps playing a big hand.
According to Goal, Rangers are interested in a move this January for Leeds’ Under-23 goalkeeper Kamil Miazek.
The report explains that Gerrard has turned to the 23-year-old as a potential Ibrox option and he’s started talks with the Scottish club, as his contract expires with the Whites at the end of the season.
Miazek is currently the third-choice goalkeeper at Elland Road, but a potential exit to Rangers would surely open the door for new Leeds addition Caprile to step into his shoes.
Caprile would be a great option to replace him as the Under-23s goalkeeper under academy boss Carlos Corberan.
Meanwhile, Kiko Casilla and his understudy Illan Meslier are currently the two senior options within Marcelo Bielsa’s squad.
Caprile is five years younger than Rangers target Miazek and it looks like a move could potentially work for all parties.
