Report: Leeds United will have to pay at least £13.5 million to sign Alessandro Florenzi

Reports in Italy have suggested how much Leeds United might have to pay if they want to sign Italian international Allesandro Florenzi this summer. 

The Roma wing-back, who has recently been on loan at Valencia, is available for transfer this summer, and Leeds have recently been mentioned as having an interest in the player. 

Now, MilanLive is reporting that Leeds are not alone in their pursuit of Florenzi. They are joined by AC Milan and Atalanta, whilst Fiorentina are also keeping an eye on proceedings.

As for the asking price, it is claimed that the Giallorossi could be willing to sell the Italian for a fee in the region of €15-€18 million (£13.5m-£16m). 

Of course, it would be interesting to see where Leeds United would fit Florenzi into Marcelo Bielsa’s current system. 

 

But his versatility will no doubt appeal. A right wing-back, Florenzi can also play as a traditional full-back or winger whilst he also came through the ranks at Roma as an all-action central midfielder. 

At 29-years-old, it remains to be seen if Leeds are willing to invest such a big sum in a player of his age. 

But there is no doubt he is a Bielsa style footballer who could bring some excellent Champions League experience to Elland Road.
