Italian website CalcioMercato have posted a video on their official Twitter account of Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani at Inter Milan’s headquarters – with four days left to go in the January transfer window.
Leeds are yet to make a move in the current window, with the only transfer activity being a number of loan deals for young players. Jordan Stevens and Ryan Edmondson have joined Bradford on loan, while Robbie Gotts has moved to Salford.
The Whites have certainly been linked with numerous players, and fans are calling out for a central midfielder to bring in competition for Mateusz Klich – who was dropped against Newcastle. A left-back could also be targeted.
As could competition for Patrick Bamford up top – with Tyler Roberts yet to find the back of the net in the Premier League. But Marcelo Bielsa recently claimed that it is unlikely any signings will be made, despite Radrizzani being spotted at Inter’s HQ.

TBR’s view – If he is at Inter for transfers, who could he be targeting?
Firstly, the chances of Radrizzani going himself to Inter to discuss incoming transfers is unlikely – that is the kind of work normally given to the likes of Angus Kinnear and Victor Orta. But there are players Inter could be looking to shift.
One is Christian Eriksen, despite his winner in the Milan derby this week. He has been linked with a return to England, as has World Cup finalist Ivan Perisic and out-of-favour midfielder Matias Vecino. Inter are expected to perform a summer overhaul.
But the Europa League side could be tempted to get rid of some players this month, if the price is right.
