Report: Leeds make Adolfo Gaich offer
Leeds United have made an offer for Adolfo Gaich, according to a report from Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb.
Gaich is likely to be a name that many Leeds fans are familiar with. He has been linked with a move to Elland Road in the past.
In fact, reports last summer claimed that the Whites planned to continue monitoring the 22-year-old despite his switch to CSKA Moscow.
That report from El Intransigente noted that the Argentina international has a £25.6 million release clause in his contract.
Unfortunately, he has not managed to live up to that sort of billing since joining the Russian side.
He failed to score in the capital. And in January, he was given the green light to leave on loan for Benevento.
He scored twice in Serie A. And he is now back with his parent club. But it would appear that it may not be too long until he is back on the move.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, he is expected to leave shortly. And while he would like to return to Italy, he has an offer from Leeds.
Leeds offer for Gaich hard to imagine based on his form over last year
As we mentioned last year, it has not been uncommon for Leeds to monitor targets for some time before they bring them to the club.
So it would certainly come as no surprise if the Whites had looked at Gaich again. And perhaps they may be tempted to make an offer while his stock is low.
But it is hard to imagine. He scored three goals in 23 appearances in all competitions last season.
And he turns 23 next February. So he is at a stage in his career when he should be looking to really kick on.
Leeds are also well-stocked for striker options. They have Patrick Bamford, Rodrigo and Tyler Roberts. They also have several exciting young players coming through.
Perhaps however, they may have been tempted to take a gamble.
