Report: Leeds United could land Serie A powerhouse for just £8.5m, his club is open to selling him
Leeds United are reportedly still in pursuit of Omar Colley along with several other Premier League clubs.
And according to Sampnews24, the Whites could potentially land the 6ft 3in defender for just £8.5m.
The outlet claims Colley’s future is “uncertain” since he’d be an “excellent” sale for Sampdoria this summer.
The Serie A side could raise funds and strengthen their ranks if they sold the 28-year-old, added the report.
As well as Leeds United, Newcastle and West Ham are apparently eyeing Colley.
Interestingly, Sampnews24 says club president Massimo Ferrero “won’t make discounts”, and wants at least €10m (£8.5m).
Therefore, Leeds could potentially land a top centre-back, with over 80 Serie A appearances and 25 Gambia caps, for a bargain price.
Admittedly, Bielsa already has several options at centre-back.
However, Liam Cooper, Diego Llorente and Robin Koch were all injured at the same time last season.
Meanwhile, Gaetano Berardi has not yet made a first-team appearance since returning from injury.
Therefore, Leeds may wish to strengthen their defensive ranks further, and Colley is certainly a great option for them.
